Research can be submitted as a long paper (up to 8 pages + 20 min talk), a short paper (up to 4 pages + 15 min talk), or as a poster presentation (1 page abstract). Papers that are not accepted will automatically be considered for the poster session. Authors of posters accepted by this route will of course have the option to decline the opportunity to present a poster. Please check the formatting guidelines before submitting your work.

Obligatory abstract pre-submission for papers: An abstract submission is required by April 3, 2008 to allow for your paper submission by April 7. After submitting the abstract, it may be edited, along with the title, paper type (short or long paper), keywords, authors, and full paper until the paper deadline of April 7, 2008.

Important news for talk presenters. Long talks should be 20 mins + 5 mins question time. Short talks should be 15 mins + 5 mins question time.

As last year, submission and review will be handled through the ConfMaster system [], which is now on-line. If you experience any problems with the system, please don't hesitate to contact the administrators for help.
