The conference will comprise two refereed paper tracks: the Research track and the Industry/Government/Work-in-progress track, as well as a poster session, all of them being presented in a single stream.

Paper submissions for the Research track are limited to 14 pages, must be written in English, formatted in the conference template (see below). The papers must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. Authors are requested to submit original papers only. Papers that have previously been published and papers that are currently being considered for publication by another journal or conference are not eligible.Each paper must include a short abstract and a list of keywords indicating subject classification. Its introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader.

Paper submissions for the Industry/Government/Work-in-progress track are limited to 8 pages, must be written in English, formatted in the conference template (see below). These papers highlight applications or present work-in-progress. They should also address challenges, lessons learned or research issues arising out of both successful and unsuccessful- deployment of such applications. Note, however, that sufficient technical content is required.

For poster submissions, a title and an abstract (max 2 pages) is required. Accepted posters will be published in the proceedings as extended abstracts that will have to be formatted in the conference template (see below).

All submitted papers will be refereed by members of the Programme Committee for correctness, originality, relevance to the conference and quality of presentation. Acceptance of a paper or poster means an obligation for at least one of the authors to attend the conference and present the paper or poster.

The most outstanding research paper, presented at the conference, will receive a "Best paper award".
