High quality papers on unpublished research and implementation experiences are 
solicited for submission. All papers must be original and not substantially 
duplicate work that has been published at or is simultaneously submitted to a 
journal or another conference/workshop with proceedings.

All submissions must be written in English, at most 20 pages in
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format, including
title, abstract, and bibliography.  The introduction should summarise
the contributions of the paper at the level understandable for a
non-expert reader. The introduction should also explain the relation
to related work. At most 4 pages of supplemental material may be
provided as well-marked appendices, however, the paper should be
intelligible without this material. Submissions must be anonymous (no
author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references).

The conference will also consider short papers, that is, submissions
of up to 8 pages (in the LNCS format), for results that are not yet
fully fleshed out y or that simply require few pages to describe but
still make a significant contribution.  All submissions must be
processed with LaTeX2e according to the instructions given by
Springer. Submitted manuscripts must be typeset in plain Springer LNCS
format, in particular without changing the font size, margins or line
spacing.Submissions not meeting these guidelines may be rejected
without consideration of their merits.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format via easychair

At least one author of every accepted paper must register to the
conference by the early registration deadline indicated by the
organizers. Papers without a registered author will be removed from
the proceedings. Authors have to present their own
paper(s). Proceedings including all accepted papers will be published
in LNCS and will be available at the conference.
