(iii) panels and workshops (2pg), and
(iv) posters (1 pg).
The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations,
acknowledgements, or obvious references.

Papers must be formatted in standard LNCS format and submitted as PDF
files. Submissions in other formats will be rejected. All papers must
be submitted electronically according to the instructions and forms
found on this web site and at the submission site.

Authors may only submit work that does not substantially overlap with
work that is currently submitted or has been accepted for publication
to a conference/workshop with proceedings or a journal. We consider
double submission serious research fraud and will treat it as such. In
case of doubt contact the program chair for any clarifications at

Regular Research Papers

Research papers should describe novel, previously unpublished
scientific contributions to the field, and they will be subject to
rigorous peer review. Accepted submissions will be included in the
conference proceedings to be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Submissions are limited to 15

Short Papers

Short papers are also subject to peer review, however, the intention
is to encourage authors to introduce work in progress, novel
applications and corporate/industrial experiences. Short papers will
be evaluated with a focus on novelty and potential for sparking
participants' interest and future research avenues. Short paper
submissions are limited to 8 pages in standard LNCS format. The paper
title for short papers should necessarily include the text "(a short
paper)".  Panel Proposals

We especially would like to encourage submissions of panel
proposals. These should include a very brief description of the panel
topics, as well as of the prospective panelists. Accepted panel
sessions will be presented at the conference. Moreover, each
participant will contribute a one-page abstract to be published in the
conference proceedings. Please feel free to contact us directly if you
would like to further discuss the suitability of a certain
topic. Panel submissions should be up to 2 pages, sent to  


The poster session is the perfect venue to share a provocative
opinion, interesting established or preliminary work, or a cool idea
that will spark discussion. Poster presenters will benefit from a
multi-hour session to discuss their work, get exposure, and receive
feedback from attendees. Poster submissions should be 1 page (in the
same LNCS format). Please keep in mind that the poster deadline is
later than the main paper submission deadline. The posters will be
published in the proceedings. Poster proposals should be sent to the
posters chair at

Workshop Proposals

Proposals for workshops to be held at FC 2013 are also solicited. A
workshop can be full day or half day in length. Workshop proposals
should include: (i) a title, (ii) a call for papers, (iii) a brief
summary and justification – including how it would fit into the
greater FC scope, (iv) a (tentative) Program Committee and its Chair,
(v) one-paragraph biographies for key organizers, and (vi) the
expected (or previous – if workshop has been held in previous years)
number of submissions, participants and acceptance rates. Workshop
proposals should be sent to

The Rump Session

FC 2013 will also include the popular "rump session" held on one of
the evenings in an informal, social atmosphere. The rump session is a
program of short (5–7 minute), informal presentations on works in
progress, off-the-cuff ideas, and any other matters pertinent to the
conference. Any conference attendee is welcome to submit a
presentation to the Rump Session Chair (to be announced at the
conference). This submission should consist of a talk title, the name
of the presenter, and, if desired, a very brief abstract. Submissions
may be sent via e-mail, or submitted in person in the morning on the
day of the session.
