The paper preparation guidelines can be found on the website. They stipulate that authors may submit multimedia files to illustrate their contribution. These multimedia files will have to be incorporated in one ZIP archive.

The conference will host several Special Sessions (see conference website). If authors want their paper to be considered for one of these Sessions, they can specify that during paper submission. Irrespective of this specification, all papers will follow the same electronic review procedure.

Authors will have to declare that their contribution is original and not being submitted for publication elsewhere (e.g., another conference, workshop, or journal).

Each corresponding author will be notified by e-mail of the acceptance or rejection of his paper by May 25, 2007. Minor updates of accepted papers will be allowed during May 25 - June 3, 2007.
