Instructions and Policies
Reviewers have spent considerable time and effort in reviewing your submissions, so please take their comments into account in your revision.
Please check the following conditions before uploading your paper:
- Paper length: The standard paper length is 12 pages. Up to two extra pages can be purchased at 5,000 JPY per page if necessary.
- Author names: Please write out author names in full in the paper, i.e. full first and family names.
- Color figures: In hardcopies of the proceedings, all figures will be printed in black and white. If you provide color figures, please make sure they are legible in black and white. In the electronic and online version of the proceedings, colored figures will appear in color, at no extra charge.
- Important: Springer will edit the provided source files in order to insert running heads etc. and to smooth out any formatting inconsistencies. Hence, do not reduce the paper length e.g. by reducing vertical spaces between paragraphs or the like, as this will be corrected by Springer, possibly resulting in an increase of the paper length. To avoid any problem, please use the author kit recommended above and follow its formatting instructions. This is also valid for bibliographic references: Springer may correct them if they don't follow the required format, possibly resulting in an increase of paper length. The final PDFs from the authors are used for checking purpose only.
- Proof-reading: The corresponding author (see above) of each paper will receive a PDF version of the paper by email, after the editing process by Springer. The email will come from an email address in India and will have an attachment (the PDF-file), so authors should make sure that such emails are not automatically filtered out. The purpose of this extra loop is to ensure that no errors have crept in during the editing process. No updates to the papers or mistakes made by the authors will be accepted at this stage. The proof-reading procedure takes place directly between Springer and authors, i.e. without involvement of the PSIVT2009 organization committee.
