The conference will feature presentations of regular, plenary, and short papers, as well as several workshops. The program for the conference is composed from a combination of submitted and invited presentations.

Papers submissions are due by February 1, 2008 for the reviewing process.

Because some people have had difficulties with the new electronic submission system,
the 2008 submission deadline is extended to February 8.

Detailed submission information is available here.

Regular and plenary presentations require a regular paper with a maximum length of eight pages; short presentations require a two page short paper; and workshops can be accompanied by either a regular or a short paper.

All papers are to be submitted properly formatted as they would appear in the conference proceedings (see the formatting instructions and template below). Papers that ignore the formatting guidelines or the length limits will not be entered into the reviewing process.

In order to have as diverse a representation of authors as possible and to keep the proceedings to a reasonable size, conference participants can be the main author and presenter on only one paper. The main author on each submitted paper should be identified with an asterisk: “*”. This rule includes all contributions: short and regular papers as well as workshop papers.

The regular presentations will be given a 25 minute time slot; short presentations will be given a 15-minute time slot.


The Conference plans to distribute the printed, refereed Proceedings at the conference. Thus, there is a tight and firm schedule:
