Papers accepted by VG01 Programme Committee will
be published in two stages, namely a workshop preprint and an editorial
book. The preprint will be used mainly by delegates during the workshop,
and by the volume editors and the publisher as a draft of the book to be
published after the workshop. Following are the format guidelines for the
workshop preprint (adapted from ACM guidelines), the formatting guidelines
for the editorial book will be published at this website after the conference.

Copyright Information (will be needed later when you submit the paper for
the editorial book published by Springer)
As stated above, each paper accepted to the conference will be also printed
in an editorial book (in addition to the proceedings). The format for the
editorial book is slightly different than the format for the proceedings

into the book version of the paper. This final versioon of the paper must
then be accompanied by a signed Copyright Form. The copyright form should
be filled out and signed by one author, preferably the primary author.
Papers without accompanying and appropriately completed copyright forms
will not be printed in the editorial book published by Springer. The copyright
rules and copyright form can be obtained here.
Although you can send it now, the form is not due until you send the paper
for the editorial book.
If your organization requires the use of their own copyright form in
place of the Copyright Form, please contact Klaus Mueller before sending
it and the paper, so that we might resolve any copyright transfer issues
as soon as possible.
All material used by the author in their accepted paper must have proper
