Draft papers are limited to 8 double-column pages. Final papers are restricted to 6 pages. Papers up to 8 pages long may be considered, but will be subject to an overlength fee. Short papers should be not less then 3 pages of length.
Invited session proposals
Invited session proposals should include the session scope, aim, outline and the titles, authors and abstracts of 4 to 6 papers. The scope and aim should be at least 1-page long.
