Information for Authors


Oral presentations will be a maximum 20 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions and discussion. A video projector will be available to project output from your laptop computer, as well as audio output. If you have other audio-visual needs, please email as soon as possible (by December 1st at the latest).

Poster presentations will include a two-minute overview, for which you may use the video projection system. Be sure to make it brief - don't try to "give the talk," but instead communicate the basic topic and idea at a high level. Consider this as an advertisement to interest people in getting the details during the poster sessions.

The posters themselves will be mounted on poster boards that are about 8 feet wide by 4 feet high. The recommended size for a poster is no larger than 5 feet wide by 4 feet high. (This supercedes size limits posted here previously!)



Workshop submissions may be up to eight pages long, although shorter submissions are acceptable. Papers will be peer reviewed by the program committee. (The review process will not be blind, so please include full names and full references.) All paper submissions will be electronic - email submissions (PDF or Postscript files) to - your submission will be acknowledged in a subsequent email. If appropriate, supporting material (e.g., video) may be submitted to help in the review process. This should be in a separate file (or if too large, send a URL pointer to the material).

Be sure to include full contact information for the author who is the primary contact.

There will be a mixture of oral presentations and poster presentations at the workshop. Both are considered as having equal status in the workshop and in the proceedings - posters are not considered as "second class" acceptances. The decision of a poster or an oral presentation will be made by the program committee.

Authors are to follow the two-column IEEE paper submission format described at, which gives detailed information about font size, page layout, etc. Paper submissions must be formatted for 8.5"x11" paper.

(Note: No release form is necessary at submission time.)

For demo proposals, there is no set submission date, but proposals are encouraged to be submitted as soon as possible since space is limited. For a demo proposal, please describe the demonstration, the space and network requirements, and provide full contact information for the responsible party.
