Submission Guidelines
Submissions must include an abstract, keywords, the e-mail address of the
corresponding author and should not exceed 8 pages for main conference,
including tables and figures in IEEE CS format. The template files for
LATEX or WORD can be downloaded here. All paper submissions must represent
original and unpublished work. Each submission will be peer reviewed by at
least three program committee members. Submission of a paper should be
regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one
of the authors will register for the conference and present the work.
Submit your paper(s) in PDF file at the submission site:

Accepted and presented papers will be included into the conference
proceedings. Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after
further revision, will be published in special issues of selected journals.
