The material that you provide via the submission form will be used to create an entry in the Informatics@Edinburgh Publications database. Because much of the process of feeding the database is automated, it is important that the information acquired by the form is correct. This document briefly summarises the most important things to look out for.
The text provided by you for abstract and title will be used exactly as you provide it to fill in fields in documents in various formats such as HTML and Latex. For these to all look plausible, you must stick to using straight ASCII text with no special formatting devices. However, the following convention can be used to impose some formatting in the abstract:
Long abstracts will be automatically truncated after 1992 characters (and the truncation will be indicated by ellipsis on the covers etc.). If you have a long abstract, it may make sense to truncate it yourself at an earlier point that makes sense. The first page of your document proper can of course contain an unabridged abstract.
Please provide names of each of the authors in the order in which they appear on the paper. For each author who is a current member of the School, just fill in the "Login Name" field. This field should contain your local unix login name (username). For each author who is not a current member of the School, please fill in only the "Last Name" and "First Name" fields. Please give your own login name in the field "Submitter".
