Instructions for camera-ready papers

If your paper has been accepted to Energy Informatics 2019, you need to provide a camera-ready version by July 8, 2019 following the instructions below. If no camera-ready version is submitted by July 8 or the submission is incomplete, it will not be considered for publication. It is therefore important to carefully read and follow the instructions below.
Note that no paper is accepted unconditionally (Springer, the publisher, reserves the right to decline papers that do not address the reviews). Reviewer comments need to be addressed as specified below. An “accept” decision is to be understood as an acceptance with minor revisions, while an “accept with shepherd” is to be understood as a major revision. For the conference proceedings published in the Springer Energy Informatics Journal, the following limits for each paper category have to be followed (these are especially important in case your paper has been accepted in a different category than the one it has been originally submitted to):

  • Full research papers are limited to 18+2 pages.
  • Short papers are limited to 10+2 pages.
  • Posters, demos and Ph.D. workshop papers are limited to 4 pages and will be published in the supplement to the conference proceedings. The fifth page for Requirements for demos is to be removed.


  1. Make sure that you address all reviewer comments. Papers which do not address the reviewer comments or which address them insufficiently will not be published. If you have been assigned a shepherd, please contact them and make sure to address all of their remarks fully. Do not submit a final version without prior approval of your shepherd.
  2. Use the paper template (provided at the Instructions for authors page). Disable blinding, i.e., make sure that all author names, affiliations and funding information are fully visible. Also make sure that the “Author’s contributions” section is filled out as detailed as possible. References should be included in the source file and not as a separate .bib file (see, e.g., here on how to do this).
  3. Rename the .tex file to “S” plus your submission number, e.g., S1.tex if you submit the camera-ready version of paper #1. Both, the source (.tex) file and the PDF need to be provided. You can find your submission number in EasyChair.
  4. Provide the figures of your paper as separate files for the typesetting process. Name the files “S” plus your submission number plus “-” and the figure number in the paper, e.g., S1-4.pdf for Fig. 4 of paper #1. Make sure that the file extension is correct, e.g., .pdf for PDF files. The following file formats can be processed by Springer:
    • EPS (suitable for diagrams and/or images)
    • PDF (suitable for diagrams and/or images)
    • Microsoft Word (suitable for diagrams and/or images, figures must be a single page)
    • PowerPoint (suitable for diagrams and/or images, figures must be a single page)
    • TIFF (suitable for images)
    • JPEG (suitable for photographic images, less suitable for graphical images)
    • PNG (suitable for images)
    • BMP (suitable for images)
  5. To grant Springer a license to publish the article, a license agreement ( for each paper needs to be filled out and signed. Note that authors retain copyright for their articles.

After following the instructions above, the following files need to be uploaded to EasyChair by July 8:

  • The PDF version of the camera-ready paper
  • The single-file source version of the camera-ready paper
  • All figures of your paper as separate files (in one ZIP file)
  • A copy of the signed license agreement

Use the “Add or update files” link in EasyChair to do so. In addition, use the “Update information” link in EasyChair to confirm that the camera-ready version of the paper is no longer blinded.
