Instructions for Authors

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published in a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings, or has submitted/is planning to submit before the author notification deadline to a journal or other conferences/workshops that have proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop that has proceedings.

All papers will be refereed by at least three people, whilst papers by programme committee members will be refereed by at least five people. Programme committee members are restricted to one submission each.

Submission Format:
  • The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references.
  • Detailed information as to the guidelines for submission are given in our Guidelines for Preparing Electronic Submissions It should be in single column format, use at least 11-point fonts, and have reasonable margins. LaTeX is strongly encouraged as the document preparation system, as that is what is used to produce the final proceedings.

    The final proceedings version will be a paper of at most 18 pages in the llncs style, which corresponds to around 7000 words of text. The document submitted (excluding appendices) should correspond to what the author expects to be published if their paper is accepted without modification. We therefore strongly recommend that authors check whether their paper (without appendices) will fit within the above llncs space constraints. Committee members are not required to review more than that, so the paper should be intelligible and self-contained within this length. Please read the Guidelines for Preparing Electronic Submissions as to how to check your paper fits within the space constraints.

  • The submission should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. The introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them.
  • Submissions should preferably be in PDF format (i.e., a .pdf file), although PostScript (i.e., a .ps file) will be allowed. If at all possible, the submission should be in US letter paper size (rather than A4), and should use Type 1 fonts (rather than Type 3 fonts). Please visit the following web page for instructions and tips on preparing your submission file: Go to: Guidelines for Preparing Electronic Submissions
  • The site for submitting papers is here
  • Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Neither late submissions, submissions by email, nor hardcopy submissions will be accepted. Authors unable to submit electronically should contact the program chair by September 14th, 2007.

Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by January 7th, 2008. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.
