Submission deadlines

Revised versions of papers and abstracts should be sent to the Organizing Committee within March 1st.

Submission categories

Papers: scientific contribution ranging in length from 4 to a maximum of 6 pages.
Abstracts: short scientific contribution (up to 2 pages).

Accepted papers and abstracts will appear in the conference proceedings.

Submission Formats

All submissions must be camera-ready pdf files named in the format "firstAuthorName.pdf". The files should be readable by a standard Acrobat Reader (version 6.0 or superior), and must be editable by people other than the author. Special non-standard fonts must be included within the submitted file.

For your convenience, there are files for Microsoft Word and LaTeX that you can use as templates.

To see what these look like, here are PDF versions of the paper format and the abstract format. If you need instructions on converting files to PDF, please look here.

Page length:
Submitted papers can be from 4 up to 6 pages long. Papers accepted for publication will appear in the proceedings, and will either be presented as a talk or as a poster at the conference. Abstracts are 2 pages long and will be presented only as a poster. Please note: As an issue of fairness, submissions that are over these lengths will be rejected without review. Similarly, submission files that are not readable or editable will be rejected without review.
