Information for Authors


Instructions for oral presentations: Each presentation will last 20 minutes and will be followed by a 10-minute question time. A Windows PC connected to a video and audio system will be available to run the presentations. To do so, each speaker is invited to bring her/his presentation, in PDF or Microsoft PowerPoint format, on a USB key or a CD-ROM to install before the beginning of the session. Using her/his own computer is also a possibility.

Instructions for poster session: Each poster session will last one hour and a half. Poster must be on A0 format (H 120 cm x W 90 cm, or 4 feet high by 3 feet wide). They should be set up during lunch time or coffee breaks before the session.

Instructions for demo: Demo presentation will be split in two parts : a short oral presentation (5 minutes) and a poster that will be presented during one of the poster sessions.



Workshop submissions may be up to eight pages in length. Papers will be carefully 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 in the submission email 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 the IEEE Computer Society website, which gives detailed information about font size, page layout, etc. Paper submissions must be formatted for 8.5"x11" paper. (Here are the IEEE's instruction and format documents in MS Word.)

(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. Demos will be allocated up to two pages in the proceedings, using the same format as the regular paper submissions (see above).
