Please mark the contact author with * at the end of the line.

Before 15 January 2013, you also have to send an E-mail to with the title:

"EvoStar13 attendance confirmation"
which includes the following information:
1. Name of (co)author who will attend EvoStar2013 ________
2.. If attendee is a student, their advisor ___________ has been cc-ed into this mail
3. If a VISA is required for the attendee, the application process has started: Not-required / Yes / No.

In case you are unable to provide a scanned signed copyright form, please fax it before 15 January 2013 to + 44 (0) 870 836 2345 (for the attention of Mrs Jennifer Willies).

When preparing your camera-ready, please make sure that you:

-- Omit all headers (no page numbers, no running title, no running
authors) but specify them in the .tex source, because Springer will
activate them in reformatting the proceedings. For Word users, add the
specifications without activating headers.
-- List all references in first authors' alphabetical order (for LaTeX users,
use the right .bst style sheet). Also, in case you cite more than one
paper in the same reference, make sure they appear in the text numbered in
ascending order (for example, do not order them in time).

Authors not following the instructions may result in the paper not being included in the proceedings.
