Abstract [click here]

The abstract template requires title of the talk at the top of the page followed by the author’s name, affiliation, and complete return address.  In case of multiple authors, each author’s name, affiliation and the address should be listed separately after the title.  The use of scientific and engineering symbols as well as acronyms should be avoided in the abstract and title. Abstracts longer than 100 words may be arbitrarily shortened by the program committee.  The abstract (including title and author information) will be reproduced directly to create a separate conference pocket proceedings and therefore must be submitted as a separate single page.

Paper Submission [click here]

The paper should not exceed 4 pages.  The paper should be created as a .pdf format using the criteria established.  The author(s) must include within the four-page limit all text, equations, drawings, figures, and references.  Tables, photographs, and drawings must appear on the page exactly as they are to appear in the conference proceedings.  The abstract should not be repeated in the paper.  Do not use asterisks or footnotes. Cite references as superscript number within the text and at the end of the paper.

If the paper is accepted, it will be reproduced directly by photo-offset from the material submitted by the author(s) and will be distributed to all registrants. 

The program committee can reject papers not fulfilling the above requirements.  The program committee assumes that the papers have been approved to be presented at this meeting by the author’s organizations.

Post-Deadline Papers

The program committee will accept a limited number of post-deadline papers for oral presentations.  The remainder will be presented at the poster session.  Papers should be submitted in electronic format as stated above no later than May 15, 2011 (original and one copy).  Accepted post-deadline papers will be presented at the meeting at a time to be announced.
