All accepted conference papers will be published in "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" (LNCS) by Springer Verlag. Accepted papers will be of two sizes: regular (15-page papers) and short (up to 8 pages). The former will tend to be descriptions of complete technical work, while the latter will tend to be descriptions of interesting, innovative ideas, which nevertheless require more work to mature. Authors of accepted papers must sign a Springer copyright release form.
