DD 20 Conference Proceedings

We had a wonderful week hosting all of you in San Diego for DD20. Within a few days it will be time to get back to the exciting work we all heard about in the technical talks at DD20. We will start posting information about the DD20 proceedings on this page.

As in prior conferences in the series, all participants who presented their work at the conference (plenary lecture, minisymposium lecture, contributed talk, or poster) are encouraged to submit a paper. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag. All paid registrants will be sent a complimentary copy of this book upon publication, which will be mailed to the physical address you provided on registration.

All papers must be prepared and submitted according to the detailed instructions that will be provided below in the coming weeks. The page restrictions are as follows:
  • Invited plenary presentations: 12 pages.
  • Minisymposia, contributed presentations, and posters: 8 pages.
The deadline for submission of the final paper for publication:
  • Monday, May 16, 2011
All papers will be refereed. Presentation at the conference does not guarantee publication. Submitted papers need not conform identically to what was presented at the conference; titles and authoring may change.

Papers may be related to other publications by the author(s), but they should include original results. Due to page restrictions, it is natural that some authors will attempt to publish a more complete version of their work in archival journals and reserve a special angle for their proceedings paper. The DD20 proceedings should meet traditional standards for originality and quality, within the limitations of length.

We are looking forward to working with all of you to produce a great proceedings volume for DD20.

Detailed Instructions for DD20 Conference Proceedings Papers

Authors are responsible for submitting latex-bug-free documents that conform to the stylistic requirements of Springer.

Begin by downloading the file dd20-stylefiles.tar.gz or dd20-stylefiles.zip. This tar.gz or zip archive contains five files:

  • svmult.cls -- the basic Springer style file
  • natbib.sty, plainnat.bst -- bibliography style files (included in many standard TeX distributions)
  • sample_author.tex -- the template file for your contribution
  • authinst.pdf -- documentation about Springer publishing format.

It is important for submissions to have consistent style, and to avoid problems with conflicting labels. To address these issues, please observe the following guidelines in preparing your manuscript:

  • Rename the file sample_author.tex as
    <author>_<program element>.tex
    where <author> is the surname of the corresponding author (supplemented by first initials where necessary, e.g. "wang_k" or "wang_y"), and <program element> is one of "plenary", "mini_<#>", "contrib", <#> being the number of the Minisymposium ranging from 1 to 19. Please insert your contribution in this file.

  • Bibliography
    Please prepare your bibliography in standard Bibtex ( .bib) format. To do this, create a file
    <author>_<program element>.bib
    and insert your references in Bibtex format. Authors are encouraged to retrieve bibtex references from MathSciNet (http://www.ams.org/mathscinet), should they already be available in that database. This will result in uniformity throughout the book and also ensure that names of journals are abbreviated correctly and consistently.

  • Labels
    If you use latex labels to refer to equations, sections, tables, figures, etc, please use label names starting with <author>_<program element>. This will ensure that your document does not conflict with other documents in the proceedings volume.

  • Figures
    All figures will appear in gray scale to allow for reasonable printing costs, although color figures can be provided and will appear in color in electronic versions. Please name the files of your figures as
    <author>_<program element>_figure<#>.extension
    where extension is png, pdf, jpg, etc.

  • Please do not edit svmult.cls, plainnat.bst, natbib.sty. Do not define your own macros, or redefine those provided in these style files.

  • When you are ready to submit your contribution, please produce an archive
    <author>_<program element>.tar (or .tar.gz or .zip)
    containing all your relevant files (including the Springer style files) and upload this file on the special proceedings submission page.

Copyright Agreement

Please be advised that by submitting an article to appear in the DD20 Proceedings volume, you are hereby agreeing to transfer copyright of your article to the publisher (Springer) as is normally required by Springer for these types of publications.
