Addendum Guidelines

Who needs to prepare a paper for the Addendum to the Proceedings for OOPSLA '96?

Please submit 2 camera-ready copies of your manuscript (produced on a high resolution output device) with the specifications defined in the table below. All Addendum submissions must be received in camera ready copy (CRC) form. The CRC specifications are identical to those required by papers for the Proceedings, so the Proceedings and the Addendum will have a common look throughout. You are free to use any word processor while meeting the formatting specifications. This year, a version of the manuscript in electronic copy should also accompany the CRC paper copy to help in the production of the OOPSLA '97 CD-ROM.
