Please consult the program co-chairs, M. Scott Corson ( ), and Samir Das ( ) if you are uncertain whether your paper falls within the scope of the symposium.

Authors should prepare a postscript or portable document format (PDF) version of their papers. Papers should not exceed 20 double-spaced pages (including text, figures and references). All papers will be reviewed for technical merit. Accepted papers will be published in the symposium proceedings.

We will adopt a double-blind process for paper review, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. Authors' names must not appear in the paper or in the postscript or PDF file. Submitted papers should be unpublished and not currently under review for any other publication.
