   We strongly recommend the use of LATEX. Using other text formatting systems, such as MS Word, may result in technical problems, and it will be the author's task to solve these in accordance with Springer's requirements.


   The scientific community interested in the ICFCA conferences has many facets, and this is one of its strengths. But although we appreciate heterogeneity as a source of ideas, we should at the same time be as communicative as possible. We therefore recommend the following guidelines for ICFCA publications:

   It is understood that the basic definitions of the field are common knowledge and should not be repeated in the presentations or the papers.

   Authors should not introduce new notions unless there are good reasons. In particular, they should not invent new names or symbols for well-known notions.
