The Internet is no longer a nice and friendly place, and instructions and procedures below are a simple compromise between ease of use and the minimum requirements for computer security.
Before you can upload your paper, you need to check if your computer
has the ftp client installed. On the UNIX type system, it is
usually a given, and the folks who use UNIX do not need instructions on FTP.
Under MS-Windows, you need to open Command Prompt
(it was once called an MS-DOS Prompt) utility. Depending on your
Windows version it may be something like:
Start -> Programs -> (Accessories ->) (System ->)
Before you send us the files, create a small document README (e.g., with Notepad) in the directory where your manuscript files reside. In the README file, provide us with the contact information (Name, address, e-mail), and a short description of software which you used to produce the manuscript. Describe content of individual files and give us detailed instructions needed to print or view the paper. Then, in your

It is very important that after you
uploaded your paper, you send us
an e-mail message (to: email@example.com) where you tell us
which files were uploaded. We will check if your upload was
successful and send you the confirmation.
The instructions and guide for authors can be found at:
Note: you will not be able to list your files, or retrieve them after you uploaded them to the server. This is done for security, so the kids out there do not use our site to distribute the bootleg versions of the software or pics.
Alternatively, you can send us your paper via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the components of your paper as e-mail attachments, and create the README file as described above.
