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:
The deadline for submission of the final paper for publication:
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.
- Invited plenary presentations: 12 pages.
- Minisymposia, contributed presentations, and posters: 8 pages.
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.

Authors are responsible for submitting latex-bug-free documents that conform to the stylistic requirements of Springer.
Begin by downloading the file
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
is the surname of the corresponding author
(supplemented by first initials where necessary, e.g. "wang_k" or "wang_y"), and
is one of "plenary", "mini_<#>", "contrib", <#> being the number of the Minisymposium ranging from 1 to 19.
Please insert your contribution in this file.
Please prepare your bibliography in standard Bibtex ( .bib) format.
To do this, create a file
and insert your references in Bibtex format.
Authors are encouraged to retrieve bibtex references from 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.
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.
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
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
proceedings submission page.
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.
