WorkShop Tracks

There will be two separate tracks in WISA 2007, full paper track and
short abstract track:

. Full paper track: Papers presented in the full paper track will be
included in the formal proceedings published by Springer in its
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series.  A limited number of
papers will be selected for presentation in this track through a
thorough review by program committee members.

. Short abstract track: Papers presented in this track will only
appear in the pre-proceedings and will not be considered as a formal
publication (and thus can be published elsewhere as more extended
versions). Papers valuable but not included in the full paper track
due to the space/time limitation will be selected for presentation in
this track. This track will be a particularly good place to exchange
ideas on work-in-progress and practical experiences, etc.
