Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Papers should be at most 15 pages
including the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point
font and reasonable margins on letter-size paper), and should be in
single-column format. Committee members are not required to read the
appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them.  All
submissions should be appropriately anonymized (i.e., papers should
not contain author names or affiliations, or obvious
citations). Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at Only pdf files
will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk
rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received
by the deadline of March 31, 2009. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee
that their papers will be presented at the conference. Accepted papers
will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
series. The camera-ready version of the accepted papers must follow
Springer guidelines (a Latex source file will be required).
