Don’t worry! It’s possible to submit the abstract using only the text areas of the form available in the submission page. The Springer template will be only required for the final paper.
Have you already done it using the template? Great! You can also submit it in that format. We’ve prepared a document based on the template to make it easier for you to use. If you want you can download the Simplified Template.
If you are planning on submitting another type of proposal, not a paper, you could use this document template instead.
