Science series.


* Instructions for paper submission

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Papers should be at most 15 pages
excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point
font), and at most 20 pages total. Committee members are not required
to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible
without them.
Submission of paper must be done using the conference web site
following the requirements stated there. They must be received by
March 31, 2008 in order to be considered. Notification will be sent to
authors by June 16, 2008.
Authors of accepted papers must be prepared to sign a copyright
statement and must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the
conference. Also, they must follow the Springer Information for
Authors' guidelines for the preparation of the manuscript and use the
templates provided there.
