Instructions for Authors

Authors are invited to submit original papers, neither published nor 
submitted for publication elsewhere, by sending the full paper or an
extended abstract containing at least 5 double spaced pages (but at 
most 20 pages) of 12 pt type, not counting the bibliography 
and clearly marked appendices.  The separate title page should 
contain the title, the names of the authors, their postal and e-mail 
addresses, and phone and fax numbers.  The paper or extended 
abstract should start with the title and abstract, but should be anonymous 
(no author name, affiliations, acknowledgment, or abstract references). 
The electronic version of the paper should be separated in two files; 
one for the title page and the other for the body of full paper or 
extended abstract. Please send your submissions to the chair of program 
committee below. Authors are strongly encouraged to submit their papers 
electronically by Oct. 30, 1998. The authors unable to submit 
electronically are invited to send 10 hard copies of their full paper or 
extended abstract by Oct. 15, 1998. We prefer to get papers in MS-Word but 
can also accept papers in LaTeX or TeX and figures in Postscript. 
Please make sure your files are self-contained, i.e. there are no pointers 
to your system set-up. For further information, please look up the 
ICISC'98 Web page.
