Submission Instructions

The deadline for submitting contributions to ANTS 2006 has now expired.

Submitted papers must be between 8 and 12 pages long, written in English, typeset in LaTeX2e, and formatted in the LNCS Springer style. Please download the LNCS package (zip, 68 Kb) for LaTeX2e and the instruction file (pdf, 121 Kb) directly from Springer web site or use our local mirror copies: llncs2e and typeinst. Authors are expected to use the default font and font size of the LNCS LaTeX2e style. Papers that do not respect these guidelines will be rejected.

The online submission system is now active. You can access the system by clicking on this link to the online submission system or by clicking on 'ConfTool' in the left hand navigation menu.

By March 12 authors are expected to communicate the title of their submission and to provide a short abstract.

By March 19, authors are expected to submit their manuscript either in Postscript or in PDF format.

All submitted papers will be peer reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity. If a submission is not accepted as a full length paper, it may still be accepted either as a short paper or as an extended abstract. In such cases the authors will be asked to reduce the length of the submitted paper accordingly. The authors of all accepted papers will be asked to improve their papers on the basis of reviewers' comments.

Authors will be notified of whether or not their paper has been accepted by May 12.

By May 26, authors of the accepted papers are expected to provide the camera-ready copy either in Postscript or PDF format, and all source files—i.e. LaTex file(s), figures and references—needed for obtaining the final version of their paper. Papers that do not comply with all requirements might fail to be included in the workshop proceedings.

By submitting a camera-ready paper, the author(s) agree that at least one author will attend and present the paper at the workshop.
