Our publisher has recently introduced an extra control loop: once data processing is finished, they will contact all corresponding authors and ask them to check their papers. We expect this to happen shortly before the printing of the proceedings. At that time your quick interaction with Springer-Verlag will be greatly appreciated.

COPYRIGHT

Please upload a signed and completed copyright form to us as soon as possible. The Springer copyright forms can be found at

ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/llncs/LNCS-Springer_Copyright_Form.pdf

It is sufficient for one of the authors to sign the copyright form.  You can scan the form into PDF or any other standard image format.

We greatly appreciate your cooperation in these matters. Thank you again for your contribution to CPAIOR’15.

JOURNAL Fast Track

If you were invited to the Journal Fast Track, remember that we expect an extended 1 page abstract for the conference proceedings that you should submit through easy chair as a replacement of your paper and you should have your extended abstract submitted by February 20th, 2015.   Do include the COPYRIGHT form as usual.

The important dates for fast track papers are:

– Author Opt-in decision: January 16th, 2015

– Extended submission due for 2nd review: January 30th, 2015
