CFP in pdf

Papers are to be submitted electronically, following the guidelines available on the conference web page. Note that abstracts of regular presentations must be registered by the registration deadline; full papers is due only by the submission deadline.

A submission for a regular presentation must report on original research. Papers submitted for regular presentations must contain results that have not previously appeared, and have not been concurrently submitted to a journal or conference with published proceedings. Any partial overlap with any such published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated. Papers for regular presentation include (1) a cover page, stating the title of the paper, the authors' affiliation, an indication of whether the paper should be considered for the best student paper award, and if so the name(s) of the student(s) recommended for the award; (2) no more than 12 single-column pages on letter-size paper using at least 11-point font; (3) an extra page used for references only. Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the program committee.

A submission for a brief announcement must be no longer than 3 single-column pages on letter-size paper using at least 11-point font. Such submissions may describe work in progress or work presented elsewhere. A submission that is not selected for regular presentation may be invited for a brief announcement.

Publication. Regular papers and brief announcements will be included in the conference proceedings. Regular papers receive up to 10 letter-size pages, brief announcements receive up to 2 letter-size pages.

Awards. Every regular paper is eligible for the best paper award and the best presentation award. Regular papers co-authored by full-time students may also be eligible for the best student paper award--for a paper to be considered, the nominated authors should be full time students at the time of submission and they should be principally responsible for the paper's contributions. The program committee may decline to make these awards or may split them.
