FORMAT OF THE CONFERENCE

The conference program will include presentation of invited papers, oral presentations, and poster/demonstration sessions. Papers will be presented in plenary or topic oriented sessions.

Social events including a trip in the vicinity of Brno will allow for additional informal interactions.

The registration fee is not fixed yet, but we can anticipate that it will be similar to that of previous years, e.g. in 2012:

Student: Early payment (by May 31) - 10000 CZK (approx. EUR 365)

Full participant: Early payment (by May 31) - 12000 CZK (approx. EUR 440)

The fee has a "all in one" form, to keep equality between participants.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS

Authors are invited to submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages formatted in the LNCS style (see below). Those accepted will be presented either orally or as posters. The decision about the presentation format will be based on the recommendation of the reviewers. The authors are asked to submit their papers using the on-line form accessible from the conference website.

Papers submitted to TSD 2014 must not be under review by any other conference or publication during the TSD review cycle, and must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere.

As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...". Papers that do not conform to the requirements above are subject to be rejected without review.

The authors are strongly encouraged to write their papers in TeX or LaTeX formats. These formats are necessary for the final versions of the papers that will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes. Authors using a WORD compatible software for the final version must use the LNCS template for WORD and within the submit process ask the Proceedings Editors to convert the paper to LaTeX format. For this service a service-and-license fee of CZK 2000 will be levied automatically.

The paper format for review has to be either PDF or PostScript file with all required fonts included. Upon notification of acceptance, presenters will receive further information on submitting their camera-ready and electronic sources (for detailed instructions on the final paper format see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html#Proceedings, Sample File typeinst.zip).

Authors are also invited to present actual projects, developed software or interesting material relevant to the topics of the conference. The presenters of demonstrations should provide an abstract not exceeding one page. The demonstration abstracts will not appear in the conference proceedings.

Brno is the capital of South Moravia, which is located in the south-east part of the Czech Republic and is known for a wide range of cultural, natural, and technical sights. South Moravia is a traditional wine region. Brno had been a Royal City since 1347 and with its six universities it forms a cultural center of the region.
