Authors are invited to submit electronically original research contributions or experience reports in English. Papers should be no longer than twenty pages, 1.5 spaced, in no smaller than 10 point font with 1 inch margins (left, right, top, bottom.) The program committee may reject papers that exceed this length on the grounds of length alone.
Submitted papers will be refereed by at least three reviewers for
quality, correctness, originality, and relevance. Notification and reviews will be
communicated via email. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and included
in the proceedings, which will be published by Springer-Verlag as part of the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series
Proposals for panels that examine emerging, innovative, or otherwise provocative issues within the conference area are encouraged as well. Panel proposals should include a 1-2 page summary of the topic and the names and affiliations of 3-4 panelists who have made a commitment to participate. A mix of industry and academic panel members is recommended.
Proposals for 90-minute tutorials are also invited on topics within the conference area. Tutorial proposals must be at most 5 pages, they must identify the intended audience, and they must give enough material to provide a sense of what will be covered.
