Please submit the files belonging to your camera-ready paper using your EasyChair author account.

The page limit is strict. Please follow strictly the author instructions of Springer-Verlag when preparing the final version: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

Our publisher has recently introduced an extra control loop: once data processing is finished, they will contact all corresponding authors and ask them to check their papers. We expect this to happen shortly before the printing of the proceedings. At that time your quick interaction with Springer-Verlag will be greatly appreciated.
