Submissions were electronic and in PDF format via a web-based submission server.
The paper should provide sufficient detail to allow the Program Committee to evaluate its validity, quality, and relevance to the workshop.Interactive presentations and software demos should be submitted by providing an abstract of no more than two (2) pages (the abstract can be updated after their acceptance). The submission must not exceed 12 pages preferably in Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes LaTex style. If appropriate, proof details omitted in the paper may be added in an appendix.
Submissions have to be in English, which is the official language of the workshop.
PDF format should be used in submissions in the first place. If you cannot produce PDF (or not even PS), please ask fsmnlp(put the sign here)ling.helsinki.fi before using any other format.
Information about the author(s) identity should be omitted in the submitted papers. The authors' names, affiliation(s), address(es) and e-mail address(es) will be provided separately on the submission. A paper should begin with the title and a one-paragraph summary of the results and ideas.
The use of LaTeX2e and the LNCS style for generating the PDF document is strongly encouraged because this facilitates preparation of the final versions to the on-site pre-proceedings CD and to the official post-proceedings that will be published in LNCS/LNAI series by Springer. If you are not able to use LaTeX2e and the LNCS style at submission, that is OK but you will have to shift to LaTeX2e later if you want to have the paper published in the official LNCS/LNAI proceedings as well.
If you have any further questions, please contact fsmnlp(put the sign here)ling.helsinki.fi.
The final versions of the accepted papers will be included to the unofficial CD preproceedings that is distributed at the workshop. Instructions for sending the final versions will be added here before the notification of acceptance.
If you illustrate your paper with figures, which is higly recommended, we will need figures in Encapsulated Postscript-format.
After the workshop, the authors may send the revised versions of their papers to the final proceedings. Presumably only LaTeX2e papers will be accepted to the postproceedings, because this reduces the work of the organizers. Springer supports other document formats but accepting many formats would mean extra work to the organizers (us) and we would like to avoid this.
