Submission Details

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, a conference, or a workshop with proceedings. Papers should be at most 15 pages including the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font and reasonable margins), and should be in single-column format.  Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them.  All submissions should be appropriately anonymized (i.e., papers should not contain author names or affiliations, or obvious citations). Submissions are to be made to the submission web site:



Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.  Papers must be received by the deadline of November 20, 2009. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The camera-ready version of the accepted papers must follow Springer guidelines (a Latex source file will be required).

If a submitted paper is mainly the result of the work of a student author, this paper could have the chance to be selected as "Best student paper" (even if the paper has been written with senior co-authors). To participate to this selection process, please add the word "STUDENT" in the affiliation field in the submission form.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register with the workshop and present the paper. For authors presenting multiple papers, one normal registration is valid for up to two papers.
