Asian Conference on Computer Vision,ACCV`98

Instructions to Authors for the Preparation of Camera-Ready 
Contributions to LNCS/LNAI Proceedings 

The Proceedings of ACCV'98 will be published by Springer-Verlag 
as Lecture Notes in Computer Science. The author(s) of each 
accepted paper should prepare up to 8 pages of camera-ready 
manuscript for the Proceedings. Both oral and poster papers 
have been allocated the same amount of space in the conference
All camera-ready manuscripts must be received by 1 October 1997
at the following address:

       	Attn: ACCV'98
       	Department of Computer Science
       	Hong Kong University of Science & Technology
       	Clear Water Bay, Kowloon
       	Hong Kong


The preparation of manuscripts which are to be reproduced
by photo-offset requires special care. Manuscripts which
are submitted in technically unsuitable form will be retur-
ned for retyping or cancelled if the volume cannot be fi-
nished on time. In order to make the volume look as uniform
as possible, the following instructions should be followed


Using 10-point font size for the main text the printing
area should be 12.2 x 19.3 cm. Manuscripts prepared in this
preferred format are reproduced in the same size in the
book. With these settings, the interline distance should be
arranged in such a way that some 42 to 45 lines occur on a
full-text page.

We recommend the use of Times or one of the similar
typefaces widely used in phototypesetting. (In Times and
similar typefaces the letters have serifs, i.e., short
endstrokes at the head and the foot of letters.) Please do
not use a sans-serif typeface for running text, except for
computer programs. 

The text should always be justified to occupy the full line
width, so that the right margin is not ragged. For normal
text please use 10-point type size and one-line spacing.
Small print (abstract and affiliation) should be set in
9-point type size. Please use italic print to emphasize
words in running text; bold type in running text and
underlining should be avoided. 

Headings should be capitalized (i.e., nouns, verbs and all
other words with at least five letters should have a
capital initial) and should, with the exception of the
title, be aligned to the left. The font sizes are as

Title (centered)     Type Theory           14 point, bold 
1st-level heading    1 Introduction        12 point, bold  
2nd-level heading  2.1 Simple Connections  10 point, bold 
3rd-level heading    Typing Rules.         10 point, bold 
4th-level heading  Remarks: (text follows) 10 point,italic 

If possible, originals should be pasted into the manuscript
and centered between the margins; if no originals of the
required size are available, figures may be reduced in
scale and pasted into the text. For halftone figures
(photos), please forward high-contrast glossy prints and
mark the space in the text as well as the back of the
photographs clearly, so that there can be no doubt about
where or which way up they should be placed. The lettering
of figures should be in 10-point font size. Figures should
be numbered. The legends also should be centered between
the margins and be written in 9-point font size as follows:

(bold) Fig. 3. (text follows) 

Your paper should show no printed page numbers; they are 
decided by the volume editor and finally inserted by the 
printer. Please indicate the ordering of your pages by 
numbering the sheets (using a light blue/green pencil) at
the bottom of the reverse side. There also should be no
running heads. 

For reproduction we need sheets which are printed on one
side only. Please use a high-resolution printer, preferably
a laser printer with at least 300 dpi or higher resolution
if possible. It is desirable that on all pages the text
appears in the middle of the sheets. 

* REMARK 1: 
If your typesetting system does not offer the variety of
font sizes needed for the preparation of your manuscript
according to these instructions, you may choose a different
(larger) font size and a correspondingly scaled printing
area (12-point font size for the running text, for example,
corresponds to a printing area of 15.3 x 24.2 cm and to a
final reduction rate of 80%). 

* REMARK 2: 
You are encouraged to use LaTeX or TeX for the preparation
of you camera-ready manuscript together with the
corresponding Springer style files "llncs" (for LaTeX) or
"plncs" (for TeX) to be obtained by e-mail or by ftp/gopher
as follows:
Mailserver: Send an e-mail message to
      svserv vax.ntp.springer.de  containing the line
      get /tex/latex/llncs.zip  for the LaTeX syle files or
      get /tex/plain/plncs.zip  for the TeX style files.
Sending "help" to the server prompts advice on how to
interact with the mail server. The style files have to be
unzipped and uu-decoded for use. In case of problems in
getting or uu-decoding the style files please contact
"springer vax.ntp.springer.de".

Ftp: The internet address is "trick.ntp.springer.de", the
     user id "ftp" or "anonymous". Please enter your e-mail
     address as password. The (above mentioned) files
     reside in "/pub/tex".
Gopher: Point your client to "trick.ntp.springer.de".
