Submissions will be evaluated for originality, significance,
clarity, impact, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed
by two experts in the field. The referees' evaluations will
then be reviewed by one member of the program committee who
will recommend a decision to the chair of the track that
the paper has been submitted to. The chair will make the
final decision.

Submissions must be in either MS doc (but not docx) or pdf
formats and should be uploaded to the evaluation web site at:
At this time, all reasonable typesetting formats are
acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be
asked to follow a particular typesetting format to prepare
their final papers for publication.)

Full paper submissions are expected to be about 5 to 7
pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12.

Abstract/Poster submissions are expected to be 1 to 2
pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12.

The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be
limited to 7 (IEEE style) pages for full papers and 2
(IEEE style) pages for abstracts/posters. Papers must not
have been previously published or currently submitted for
publication elsewhere. The first page of submissions should
include: title of the paper, name, affiliation, postal address,
and email address for each author. The first page should also
identify the name of the Contact Author and a maximum of 5
topical keywords that would best represent the content of
the paper.

All accepted papers will be published in the respective
conference proceedings (in both, printed book/ISBN form as
well as online). The proceedings will be indexed in Inspec /
IET / The Institute for Engineering and Technology, DBLP /
Computer Science Bibliography, and others.) The printed
proceedings will be available for distribution on site at
the conference.

In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected
authors will later be invited to submit extended versions of
their papers for publication in a number of research books
proposed with various publishers (such as, Springer, Elsevier,
IOS, ...). Also, many chairs of sessions and workshops will
be forming journal special issues to be published after the
