Dear all, 

We want to explain the following with regard to the post received from 

1. All the works (papers, short-papers, demos, posters, etc.), were, are and 
will be published by Springer (LNCS). 

2. In all our portals it is written that it is a “post-conference” 
publication, which means that the publisher has its own management timing, 
which we do not control at all. This timing depends exclusively on the 
internal mechanisms of management of the publisher and these must be 

3. We have at the disposal of the potential participants in the 
international conferences, workshops, symposiums, etc., as well as of those 
who participate in a constant way some email addresses (international 
secretariat) for the explanations to this concern, without need of putting 
us a post with international circulation, which discredits us. 

4. Evidently, a scientific publication entails a process and a process 
implies the word ”time”. In face of the passing of time, “patience” is the 
main virtue. 

Finally, to all of those who have decided to be erased quickly from our 
international committees because of the post (ACM mailing list), we only 
wish them the best. We have been working since 1991, in a modest and honest 
way, with the goal of reaching a better quality of life for all, through the 
new technologies, and without getting since 1991 a cent of euro in 
subsidies, from public and/or private institutions, for example. 

Thanks a lot for your attention. 

International Secretariat, HCITOCH 2012
