Addendum: Marks used in Reviews
Unfortunately, we omitted the definition of the evaluation values from
the notifications we sent to authors. Here they are:
- A landmark paper
- A strong paper
- The paper has good results
- Acceptable, with slight favour
- Acceptable, but likely to reject
- An unsatisfactory paper
- A bad paper
- The paper has serious bugs
- Out of scope of STACS
For preparation of final versions, please use the following material:
The final manuscript is due on DECEMBER 4, 1998. Instructions to prepare
and deliver the final manuscript are included below. The deadline is
firm and the technical rules from the publisher are strict. It is there-
fore strongly recommended to send the final manuscript as early as pos-
sible so that the manuscript can be technically checked by the organi-
zers and (if necessary) corrected by you.
The proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as a volume of Lec-
ture Notes in Computer Science. For this reason, your manuscript must be
prepared according to the instructions given by Springer at
Note in particular that your manuscript should show no page numbers or
running heads. The page limit is 10 pages (including references and / or
appendices). Manuscripts exceeding this limit will be rejected.
Springer Verlag will make the proceedings available in an electronic
version, too. Therefore, we ask you to submit:
- the PostScript file of the final version,
- all the source files, e.g., tex files for the text and ps or eps files
for figures, the final dvi file (for papers prepared using LaTeX or
and, if possible,
- a PDF file of the final version of your contribution.
Please ensure that in all cases the text to be included into the pro-
ceedings is identical to the postscript version. We strongly recommend
to use LaTeX for the preparation of the final manuscript. Normally this
causes no unsolvable technical problems and allows the publisher to pro-
duce hyperlinks for the electronic version.

1. cd to a directory containing all the files to upload.
