Proofreading of camera-ready manuscripts
CloudCom publisher Springer Verlag has informed us of the importance of maintaining a good English language quality of papers published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series. Thus, we request that authors of accepted papers arrange to have their final versions proof-read by a native English speaker. If you do not have access to native English speakers, you may purchase proofreading services from a professional language consultant. For your convenience, we include some links to such services below:
