Paper Submission

Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted to other conferences or journals for consideration for publication. Papers must be written in English and be fully anonymous with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. They should be at most 16 pages long in total, in standard LNCS format except for author names and affiliations. Papers should be sufficiently intelligible and self-contained without appendices so that PC members can review papers without them. Accepted full papers will be presented at the workshop and will be published in the conference proceedings planned for publication in Springer's LNCS series. Papers accepted as short papers will also be presented at the workshop and will be published in the locally printed proceedings with an official ISBN number. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register with the workshop and present the paper. Each paper can be submitted to one of the three tracks. The review and selection processes will be done according to the policy of the track. For instance, Track III emphasizes the practicability of the technology. The conference proceedings will to be published in a special volume of Springer LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science).

Best Paper Awards

Prizes will be awarded to the authors of the best paper(s) and the best student paper(s).
