All accepted industrial papers will be published in the CD-ROM proceedings.


Keynote Speeches

Keynote speeches, if accompanied by full-length papers, will also be published in the CD-ROM proceedings.


Paper Submission and Selection

The papers will be selected on the basis of abstracts (1-2 pages). Authors shall therefore submit their abstracts, on Adobe PDF format, to the following email addresses: or:
