Paper Submission

Papers submitted to BioID_MultiComm '09 should conform to the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) style. Detailed guidelines on the preparation of your manuscript are outlined in the Springer website (please refer to "Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes" using your favourite text editor). Please note that at this stage authors should not include their names in the submitted papers, since the reviewing process will follow a double-blind procedure. Names will be included in the final version of accepted papers.

Submission guidelines
Authors should take into account the following:
  • All papers must be written in English and submitted in pdf format.
  • Submissions will be rejected without review if they:
    • contain more than 8 pages.
    • violate the double-blind policy.
    • violate the dual-submission policy.
Papers conforming to these guidelines should be uploaded to the BioID_MultiComm '09 Submission Website
Author kit

The author kit on the Springer web site provides a LaTeX2e and a Word template for submissions, and an example paper to demonstrate the format. Please refer to this example for detailed formatting instructions, especially if you intend to use something other than LaTeX to prepare your paper (e.g. MS Word).

Instructions and policies

Paper length: A complete paper should be submitted in camera-ready format. Each submitted manuscript should not exceed the page length of 8 pages.

Dual submission: By submitting a manuscript to BioID_MultiComm '09, the author(s) assert that it has not been previously published in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper either has been or will be submitted during the BioID_MultiComm '09 review period to either a journal or a conference. If there are any papers that may appear to the reviewers to violate this condition, then it is your responsibility to (1) cite these papers (preserving anonymity), (2) argue in the body of your paper why your BioID_MultiComm '09 paper is nontrivially different from these concurrent submissions, and (3) include anonymized versions of those papers in the supplemental material.

Author registration: At the time of submission of the final manuscript (no later than April 10, 2009) at least one author for each accepted paper must register to the conference. The inclusion of the papers into the proceedings volume is strictly subject to this requirement. Details on the registration procedure will be given by June 1, 2009.
