A sharp limit of 15 pages, not including references and appendices, in standard LNCS format (see LNCS author instructions) is placed on all submissions. The paper should be intelligible and self contained without appendices, as committee members are not required to read appendices. The submission receipt deadline is November 15, 2005, 5:59pm EST. The paper must be fully anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. The paper must start with a title, an abstract, and keywords. It should be followed by a succinct statement appropriate for a non-specialist reader, specifying the subject addressed, its background, the main results, and their significance. Technical details directed to the specialist should then follow. If accepted, one of the authors is expected to present the paper at the workshop. Submissions not meeting the guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
