Workshop Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit full papers for the workshop via the EDAS Conference Management System. Only original papers describing previously unpublished, not currently under review by another conference or jounal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development must be submitted.

All papers will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings, published by Springer-Verlag, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Papers must be writting in English and should follow the instructions in the Springer template file available in both LaTeX and Microsoft Word format.

The first page should include paper title, an abstract of about 150 words, 3-5 keywords indicating the paper topic area and symposium, name and affiliation of author(s) as well as the corresponding author's e-mail and postal addresses. Maximum paper length is 8 pages (in Springer format). No extra pages are permitted.

Camera Ready Paper Submission Guidelines

  2. At least one author of each paper must be registered by 27 February 2012. For more information about the registration please refer to the registration instructions page.
