Please follow the Lecture Notes in Computer Science format. Templates are available for download in the LNCS website.

Proceedings will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
Springer has developed LaTeX style files and Word templates to help you prepare your paper. LaTeX is the preferred format (especially for texts containing several formulae), but Word templates are also available.

Preparing your proceedings paper

For your convenience, we have summarized on this page the instruction on how a proceedings paper should be structured, how elements (headings, figures, references) should be formatted using our predefined styles, etc. The PDF of the Authors Guidelines can be downloaded here or as part of the zip files containing the complete sets of instructions and templates for the different text preparation systems.

Copyright form

Each contribution must be accompanied by a Springer copyright form, a so-called ‘Consent to Publish’ form. Modified forms are not acceptable.
Authors will be asked to transfer the copyright of the paper to the Springer. This will ensure the widest possible protection and dissemination of information under copyright laws.One author may sign on behalf of all of the authors of a particular paper. In this case, the author signs for and accepts responsibility for releasing the material on behalf of any and all co-authors. A prefilled copyright form is usually made available to authors by the volume editor. In the case of a proceedings volume, it can often be downloaded form the conference website.

 Here is a link for the default form for a “Consent to Publish” in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.


Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format before their paper is submitted to Springer.

Template and instructions for LaTeX2e

We want to add hyperlinks to your manuscript in the online version, so we recommend the use of LaTeX2e for the preparation of your camera-ready manuscript, together with the corresponding Springer class file – llncs2e.zip contains:

  • llncs.cls, Springer class file;
  • llncs.dem, sample input file, you can use it as a source for your own input;
  • llncs.doc (actually a TeX file), the documentation of the class, with detailed instructions on how the macro package works;
  • llncs.dvi, DVI resulting out of llncs.doc.

Template and instructions for Microsoft Word

We do not encourage the use of Microsoft Word, particularly as the layout of the pages (the position of figures and paragraphs) can change between printouts. However, we do provide the relevant template (“splnproc1110.dotm”). Please read the explanatory typing instructions “SPLNPROC Word 2007-2010 Technical Instructions.pdf” contained in the ZIP archive carefully.
    • A pdf of the general guidelines for authors of computer science proceedings papers;
    • A pdf of the instructions explaining how to work with the Word 2003 template;
    • The Word 2003 template svlnproc1104.dot.
