Extended abstracts/short papers – updated information  

We have had some questions regarding the extended abstracts and have made the following clarifications:

  1. By accepting your abstract, the organisers have invited you to give an oral presentation.
  2. For the benefit of other participants, and in order to facilitate good discussions, we would like you to hand in an extended abstract/short paper.
  3. This is not an absolute requirement, in so far as the presentation of an extended abstract could interfere with future publication plans.
  4. The organizers will distribute extended abstracts/short papers to the group organiser(s) who will be responsible for further distribution.
  5. Participants who wish for papers to be made publically available for download must notify us of this.
