Submit camera ready paper

ISMIS’09 uses EasyChair‘s Proceedings facility to gather camera-ready versions of accepted papers. To submit the camera ready version, you need to upload the following files

  1. A zip file (with the extension .zip) containing either
    1. the LaTeX source required to produce your paper with all the associated style files, special fonts and eps or bib files and all non-standard or local packages, or
    2. Microsoft Word file in the RTF format
  2. PDF version of your paper (when preparing the proceedings, Springer will do some formatting like adding running heads, page numbers etc., so this file will be used for checking purposes only)
  3. A signed copyright form. Use the local version of the copyright form that already includes the title of the volume and the names of editors.  The copyright form can be signed by one author on behalf of all co-authors. Please print, fill-in, sign, scan and upload the copyright form (in JPEG or PDF format).


Check also the names of all authors of the paper. It should be clear which of the authors’ names are first names and which are surnames (and if they have more than one surname, under which surname the author wishes to be listed in the author index).

Uploading steps
  1. Log-in to EasyChair.
  2. On the first screen, choose “proceedings author”.
  3. Click on “Paper ###” in the top menu, where ### is your paper id.
  4. Click on “Submit a new version” in the right menu.
