MCQMC2014 — April 6 – 11, 2014 — KU Leuven, Belgium

Eleventh International Conference on
Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods in Scientific Computing

MCQMC2014 Conference Proceedings

The proceedings of The Eleventh International Conference on Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods in Scientific Computing (MCQMC2014) will be published by Springer-Verlag, in a book entitled Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods 2014, edited by Ronald Cools and Dirk Nuyens.

The deadline for manuscript submission is 20 September 2014.

The following information was adopted from the Sydney conference.

Manuscript Preparation

Every conference speaker is invited to submit a paper based on his/her talk as author or co-author (please provide a link to the talk's abstract on our website when submitting your paper). Each submission will be refereed and only a number of selected contributions will be published. There is a limit on the total number of pages of the volume, so please keep your articles as short as possible (without giving up clarity, of course).

1. Use our template

The manuscripts must be prepared in LaTeX2e with Springer's style files. Please use the links below to download the necessary files into a common folder/directory:

If in doubt on how to use the style, refer to the following original instructions from Springer:

It is not necessary for manuscript preparation, but the complete package of LaTeX styles, macros, instructions, samples, etc. can be obtained from the Springer website (navigate to: Manuscript Preparation in LaTeX: contributed books).

Please do not include colored figures unless they are absolutely necessary. (Justification for colored figures should be provided in the email when submitting your manuscript.)

Please do not use footnotes.

Note That the Title of Your Manuscript and All Section Titles Use Capitalization, but Do Not Capitalize a, an, the; and, but, or, for, nor, ...; on, at, to, by, ...

2. Use basic LaTeX commands

The book will be compiled from one root LaTeX document that will \include all the manuscripts. For this reason, you must refrain from redefining LaTeX commands globally in your manuscript, because they may affect other manuscripts as well. In case of absolute necessity, you can define new LaTeX commands for your document via \newcommand{\mycommand}, but never \renewcommand{\mycommand} or \def\mycommand. Keep their number to a minimum and avoid using short simple names that may clash with those of other authors. Only the material that lies strictly between \begin{document} and \end{document} will be extracted from your LaTeX file. The rest will be commented out. If you have defined (new) commands before \begin{document}, we will try to recover them and define them at the beginning of the book.

3. Prepare the bibliography

We recommend using BiBTeX with Springer's preferred style file spmpsci.bst. The citations use numbers in brackets, as in the previous MCQMC books. After producing the .bbl file, simply copy its contents near the end of your main .tex source file.

If you do not use BiBTeX, you can format your references by hand using this style. This is illustrated by the author.tex file, see also the author instructions.

References must be in alphabetical order. Please do not abbreviate journal names.

Copyright Statement

Please be advised that submitting an article to appear in the MCQMC2014 Proceedings volume, you are hereby agreeing to transfer copyright of your article to the publisher (Springer). See the copyright transfer agreement for further information.

Initial Manuscript Submission

Please email one PDF file containing your manuscript to with the subject heading "MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION". The manuscript must be prepared in LaTeX2e with Springer's style files. The name of the PDF file should start with the first author's surname. The deadline for manuscript submission is 20 September 2014.

Final Submission for Accepted Manuscript

When submitting the final version of your accepted manuscript, please email the following to with the subject heading "FINAL MANUSCRIPT":

No other format of document is accepted (no exception). The names of all the files (also your figures) should start with the first author's surname.

Please proof-read your final version very carefully. A list of commonly encountered LaTeX errors is provided on Pierre L'Ecuyer's webpage. The author instructions and the reference guide contain a longer list of typesetting recommendations.
