Instructions for authors contributing to conferences
to ease the preparation of your paper special patterns have been prepared. Using these patterns an uniform appearance
is guaranteed and the job can easily be done by automatically observing all formats, making up into pages and spacing.
You will find sample pages formatted in MS-WORD (zip)
We need a transfer of your contribution as an unprotected pdf-file, since a faithful reproduction will be guaranteed,
by e-mail or CD-ROM. Graphics and figures must be included at the proper place in the document, also all used fonts
(standard fonts, too). Please note that errors and misstyping caused by e-mail transfer or disregard of these typing
instructions cannot be corrected prior to printing.
Do not forget to read the Copyright Agreement (pdf). When supplying your
contribution to the VDE you agree with these conditions.
Software licence agreement
Production of CD-ROM`s may not be performed with any kind of unlicensed software. Authors of contribution for
VDE-proceedings therefore confirm that only licenced software has been used to prepare their paper and therefore
release VDE and VDE VERLAG GMBH from any claim for damage of third parties.
For the Conference
Oral presenting authors should add a short vita (max. 50 words) to their paper to allow the chairman to introduce
them to the audience.
Please make sure, that your overhead slides are clearly arranged by using at least a type size of 28 pts.
(Titles min. 48 pts.) Thus the visitors in the rear part of the conference room will easily follow your lecture.
When preparing colored slides or presentation with beamer, please take care of high-contrast colors to allow the
identification of details.
For poster presentation pin walls of 1,40 m height x 1,20 width are normally available. Please take into
consideration that the conference organizer takes no responsibility for posters not being removed after the session.
If presentation using LCD-beamers has been agreed please check the available equipment at the conference site well
in advance of your lecture in order to avoid any delay. Please have the necessary plug-ins and connecting cables
available for your laptop. Mains supply in Germany is 220 V AC, 50 cycles.
We wish you good luck while preparing your paper and thank you for your cooperation!
