Competition Papers

The competition reports/descriptions for the TOOLympics post-proceedings should be original papers of at least 4 pages (including references) in LNCS style. Shorter contributions are possible, but will not be treated as full papers by Springer (e.g. they will not be assigned a DOI). There is no hard page limit, be we ask participants to keep a reasonable ratio between content and number of pages. We recommend the following default structure for competition reports/descriptions:

The above is a suggestion, not a required structure; it should in any case be adapted to each specific participating competition.
