A seminar concentrates on scientific results, but it also teaches competences required for scientific work. In particular

  • literature research
  • reading and understanding of scientific texts
  • presentation skills
  • creating a written elaboration


A deadline means that we can process your submission first thing in the morning on the following day. It should be sent by email to the responsible person.


The elaboration should be 10 pages max. It must be prepared with

LaTeX, document class llncs.cls

Use this class according to the template document which is available on the Springer web site under Information for Authors. The above website contains a useful rubric "Author Guidelines" with further information. Do not change the formatting parameters of llncs.cls in any way. You must use bibtex for references. Many bibtex references can be obtained from the DBLP computer science bibliography.

A good introduction to LaTeX may be found in the documentation of Overleaf.

You should adhere to this style guide for all texts at the proglang group.
