* Instructions for paper submission

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Papers should be at most 15 pages excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font), and at most 20 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them. Authors must submit their paper using the conference web site following the requirements

stated there.
Submissions must be received by March 31, 2008 in order to be considered. Notification will be sent to authors by June 16, 2008. Authors of
accepted papers must be prepared to sign a copyright statement and must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. Authors of accepted papers must follow the Springer Information for Authors’ guidelines for the preparation of the manuscript and use the templates provided there.
