Guidelines for Submitting the Final Paper Version

The instructions here are meant for the camera ready final version of the papers. It is not necessarry for the review to obey the instructions below. But if you follow them when preparing your paper, you will save extra work when preparing the camera ready later.

TSD 2024 Proceedings

The Program Committee members have put in a significant effort in order to provide useful feedback to the authors. Please find the comments on your paper included in the e-mail with your Notification of Acceptance. When preparing the final paper version, please take into account the referees' comments.

The proceedings of TSD 2024 will be published in the Springer's LNCS, Lecture Notes in Computer Science, LNAI subseries and will be available at the conference. Please read carefully the Springer instructions on preparing the manuscript and pay attention to the Springer Code of Conduct before you submit the final version.

The TSD proceedings will include all papers accepted for the main conference. The mode of presentation (oral presentation or poster) will not be differentiated (not even mentioned) in the proceedings, all conference papers are published in the same manner organized only to the Text, Speech and Dialogue proceedings sections.

Paper Format

The whole proceedings is typeset in TeX and LaTeX formats. These formats are necessary for the final versions of the papers to be published in the Springer Lecture Notes. The authors are thus strongly encouraged to write their papers in TeX or LaTeX. Authors using a WORD compatible software for the final version may ask the Proceedings Editors to convert the paper to LaTeX format (with extra fee, see below). For detailed instructions on the final paper format see the Springer Information for LNCS Authors. For LaTeX example of a paper you may download directly the Springer template. Springer also offers an Overleaf LNCS template.

Do not squash your paper by removing vertical spaces or changing font sizes, etc. The paper will be reformatted by editors and the final pdf will cover more pages than the original. You would risk your paper be truncated or rejected.

Five other very important points are:

  1. please make sure that there is only one set of source files and pdf files per paper. Any older versions of papers should on no account be sent on to us.
  2. please make sure that, if an author has several papers in one volume, he or she writes his name consistently. This is not only important for the Author Index of the volume, but also for the author himself/herself.
  3. please make sure that it is clear which of the authors' names are first names and which are surnames. This is particularly important for Chinese or Spanish names. The names appear as initial(s) plus surname(s) in the running heads and surname(s), first name(s) in the author index.
  4. authors using WORD compatible software for the final version must use the LNCS template for WORD and within the registration process ask the Proceedings Editors to convert the paper to LaTeX format. For this service a service-and-license fee of CZK 2000 will be levied automatically. When you are sending the Word or RTF file, you have to add a PDF version of your file, because installed software or fonts may differ and the result document may not be seen by the others the same way as you can see it.
  5. Springer is including ORCID iDs in proceedings papers. We ask authors to specify their ORCID iDs in the paper. Use the \orcidID macro, for details see the llncs2e template and sample paper by Springer.

Copyright Form

At least one author of each accepted paper must sign the copyright form (local copy), which is also located at the above mentioned Springer Information for LNCS Authors.

As a title of the book please fill in TSD 2024; the Volume Editors are Petr Sojka, Ales Horak. Your signed copyright form must be included in your final paper upload.

Authors Registration

One of the authors has to register and to pay the registration fee by June 15 to be included in the conference proceedings. Only one paper of up to 12 pages (including references and appendices) is covered by the registration fee. The additional paper charge is CZK 1000 per page. An author with more than one paper pays the additional page(s) rates unless a co-author has also registered and paid the full registration fee.

Final Submission

The final submission of your paper comprises of three parts:

  1. a completed and signed copyright form,
  2. electronic files of your paper:
    • text files (latex, tex) and .eps files for the figures or the .doc file,
    • the final PDF (not in reverse page order).
  3. registration of at least one author per paper.

Upload your electronic files to the conference submission system.

Papers longer than 12 pages need to pay the fee of 1000 CZK per page over limit.

To avoid confusion, name all files in the following fashion: Use always 8 characters plus an extension (tsdNNNNC.XXX). tsd is a fixed string. NNNN is the paper id number assigned to you. To distinguish several files of the same type (e.g., EPS files) use characters a, b, c,... in the field C. XXX identifies the file type (tex, ps, etc.). For example, the files in a final submission could be named tsd1009a.tex, tsd1009a.dvi, tsd1009a.ps, tsd1009a.eps, tsd1009b.eps, and tsd1009c.eps.

It is required that you compress the files with the ZIP format. Use tsdNNNN as the base name for the compressed file (e.g., tsd1009.zip).
