Papers made available as preprints (e.g. via arXiv.org) and not published in other conference or workshop proceedings before are acceptable given that this fact is acknowledged in an email to the editors. After your paper is accepted to PBML you can freely submit it arXiv, just please fill the DOI and reference to PBML at arXiv. You can use pbmlarxiv.cls, which is a PBML-compatible style suitable for arXiv (which does not support XeLaTeX).
PBML is typeset using XeLaTeX. Preferably, submit manuscripts in PBML XeLaTeX style, see below. The templates are available either via package to download or as an overleaf template.
Contributions written in Microsoft Word are accepted only by previous arrangement.
This package contains all PBML style files including a sample PBML_article.tex in a single directory.
Simply modify the sample files and follow the instructions in the included README file to compile your manuscript.
Alternatively, you can use read-only Overleaf Template and create a clone which you can modify.
To clone a template, simply click the "Clone this project" link in a green box at a top of the document editing window. You can then modify the template in a same manner as the package from the previous section.
