The program committee seeks high-quality submissions describing original work, written and to be presented in English, not substantially overlapping with published or simultaneously submitted work to a journal or conference with archival proceedings. Excluded from this restriction are papers previously presented at workshops without formal proceedings or papers submitted to workshops without formal proceedings. Papers that have been submitted to other workshops should be marked as such. Selection criteria include accuracy and originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results, and quality of presentation. All submissions will be subject to academic peer review by three or more members of the program committee. For each accepted paper, at least one author is required to attend the symposium to present the work.

Papers must be edited in LaTeX using the llncs style and must be submitted electronically as PDF files via the EasyChair system:

Formatting instructions and the LNCS style files can be obtained via http://www.springer.com/lncs.

The page limit is 16 pages. Prospective authors are required to register a title and an abstract a week before the paper submission deadline (see Important dates, on the left panel of this web page).
