Author names, affiliations and self-references should not be anonymized.

Typesetting Requirements

Authors have to use a dedicated OASIcs LaTeX style to produce their submissions and final paper versions. The style file provides several features for authors:

  • titlepage environment,
  • abstract environment,
  • provision of ACM 1998 classification environment,
  • topical keywords.

The OASIcs LaTeX style templates are available at http://drops.dagstuhl.de/styles/oasics/oasics-authors.tgz.

These LaTeX style files for OASIcs require the usage of pdflatex. Please ensure that you have an up-to-date LaTeX environment available. The papers should be submitted by the authors using the oasics.cls LaTeX style available from http://drops.dagstuhl.de/styles/oasics/oasics-authors.tgz.

In order to improve the quality of the proceedings and to simplify the overall publication process, authors of submissions should follow the guidelines below:

  • Use pdflatex.
  • Use further LaTeX packages only if absolutely required.
  • Do not use a different main font. For example, usage of times-package is forbidden.
  • Provide full author names (especially with regard to the first name).
  • Fill out the \subjclass and \keywords macros. For the \subjclass, please refer to the ACM 1998 classification.
  • Take care of suitable linebreaks and pagebreaks. No overfull \hboxes should occur in the warnings log.
  • Provide suitable graphics in vector format (preferably in pdf format).
  • Use the provided sectioning macros: \section, \subsection, \subsection*, \paragraph, ...
  • Keep the standard style (plain) for the bibliography as provided by the oasics.cls style file.
  • Use a spellchecker to get rid of typos.
  • For the abstract, no LaTeX commands are allowed. In particular, the abstract must not contain complex LaTeX formulas or literature references. These rules are a prerequisite for a successful submission of accepted papers to indexing agencies like DBLP.
  • A manual for the LIPIcs style is available at http://drops.dagstuhl.de/styles/oasics/oasics-authors/oasics-manual.pdf.
