Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and published in the official IFIP conference
proceedings by Springer Academic Publishers.
Maximum length is eight (8) pages, formatted according to Springer IFIP series instructions. Authors are strongly encouraged to use the correct document style from the Springer IFIP web site (http://www.springer.com/series/6102).
Also, the correct document style can be found here:
The program committee may reject papers that exceed this length on the grounds of length alone. Authors are strongly encouraged to use the correct document style. This should be done for their initial submission, so that preparation of the final papers is simplified.
Proposals for workshop panels that examine emerging, innovative, or otherwise provocative issues within the conference area are encouraged as well. Workshop proposals should include a 1-2 page summary of the topic and the names and affiliations of 3-4 panelists who have made a commitment to participate. A mix of industry and academic panel members is recommended.
Proposals for 90-minute tutorials are also invited on topics within the conference area. Tutorial proposals must be at most 5 pages, they must identify the intended audience, and they must give enough material to provide a sense of what will be covered.
A fully electronic review process by three academic reviewers is being planned for all the submitted papers. Full papers and workshop or tutorial proposals should be submitted electronically in postscript or pdf format by the 3rd of November 2008, following the procedure described on the conference web page. Abstracts are due on the 27th of October 2008.
Please ensure that the language in your paper is good. If necessary, get it checked by a language professional.
