Submitted full papers will be subject to stringent peer review by experts and carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings to be published by Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography (edited by Springer).

 

For full paper format please use the template in MSWord or LaTeX (allow use macros in MS Word) and follow the Key Style Points on springer.com. For submission upload via EasyChair use PDF format.

 

Producing your paper  in several formats is reflected in the preparation of the manuscript and means that all (Word, LaTeX, etc.) manuscript files we receive will be converted to XML and re-formatted according to the Springer branded style. Accordingly, it is no longer necessary for you to spend valuable time putting the final touches to the manuscript.

However, we have compiled a list of key style points on manuscript structure, figure resolution, reference style etc., which – if considered during manuscript preparation – will help facilitate and speed up the publication process for your book. For easy reference please visit the Key Style Points on springer.com.

Further, please note that all illustrations will be available in full color in the eBook but in black and white in the printed book. If color is essential for individual figures in the printed version, please list the corresponding figures in a separate spreadsheet.

 

All attendants with accepted paper should expect to register and attend the conference.

 

For full paper submission please use EasyChair conference system and submit new version of your submission in EasyChair menu.


 

EasyChair Instructions for Authors

 

The submission and review of papers for the CARTOCON2014 will be managed through an online conference paper management system called „EasyChair. (www.easychair.org). This system gives you, the author, complete control over your submission. You can upload your abstract and check on the review status of your submission.  The submission process consists of three stages:

 

1) Abstract Submission,

2) Full Paper Submission

3) Final Paper Submission.

 

In each stage, our committee members will review your paper and notify you of the result. Only papers that are accepted in stage 1 will be submitted to stage 2, and only papers accepted in stage 2 will be submitted to stage 3.

This guide is intended to support authors during the submission process. It has four parts:

 

1. Setting up an account

2. Abstract Submission

3. Full Paper Submission

4. Final Paper Submission

 

While the procedure is quite simple and thus we do not anticipate users running into trouble, we are happy to help if you encounter problems. In the event that you do need help, please contact us at submission@cartocon2014.org
