instructions for authors

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings. Each paper should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. Papers should be in Portable Document Format (.pdf), at most 12 pages excluding bibliography and appendices, and at most 16 pages total using at least 11-point fonts and with reasonable margins. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. It is strongly preferred that submissions be processed in LaTeX according to the instructions at comp/lncs/authors.html, since this will be a mandatory requirement for the final version of papers. Authors of an accepted paper must guarantee that at least one of the authors will attend the workshop and present their paper.
