Submission Guidelines

Acceptance of contributions will be determined on the basis of Draft
Final Papers. Each paper must explain clearly

    - what problem it is trying to address,
    - what has been tried before and why it isn't good enough,
    - some proof that your method is sound (or reference to it),
    - how it will help others/apply to other problems,
    - some results/proof it works.

Draft Final Papers must not exceed 10 single-spaced A4 pages (maximum
43 lines, max. line length 160 mm, 12 point), in English. They have to
contain the final text to be submitted, including graphs and pictures.
