Paper style of final paper


All papers should be submitted to the conference organizers by email to icof@uni-due.de in Acrobat PDF format only. The final manuscript has to be written in English and must not exceed eight pages including figures. The conference proceedings will be provided in both an electronic (CD) and printed version. A biography is not necessary.
The generated PDF document should not contain any security restrictions due to potential problems during the printing process. Please make sure that all fonts are embedded!

The paper style in our proceedings basically follows those of the IEEE templates (here, for IEEE Transactions). Please use our modified versions whose guidelines are implemented in the LaTeX and Microsoft Word template file archives available below. These zip archives are provided for convenience of authors and contain the actual templates as well as some documentation and sample documents. If you have problems using the template files below, please contact the workshop organizers for further assistance.

The papers should have no header, no footer and no page numbers since those will be added by the workshop organizers later.
