Typesetting Instructions for the Preparation of Draft Papers

    Papers must be in either MS doc or pdf formats (maximum of 10 pages for Regular
    Research Papers; maximum of 6 pages for Short Research Papers; and
    maximum of 3 pages for Extended Abstract/Poster Papers - the number of
    pages includes all figures, tables, and references). ALL REASONABLE
    TYPESETTING FORMATS ARE ACCEPTABLE (many authors use Springer's
    one-column style format for their submissions or IEEE style format:
    later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to follow a
    particular typesetting format to prepare their final papers for
    publication). Papers must not have been previously published or
    currently submitted for publication elsewhere.

    The first page of the paper should include the followings:
       - Title of the paper
       - Name, affiliation, postal address, and email address of each
         author (identify the name of the Contact Author)
       - Abstract (between 100 and 120 words)
       - A maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
         work described in the paper
       - Write the type of the submission as "Regular Research Paper",
         "Short Research Paper", or "Extended Abstract/Poster Paper".
       - The actual text of the paper can start from the first page
         (space permitting).

    In summary, papers submitted for evaluation can be in any reasonable
    format. If accepted, the authors will be provided with formatting
    instructions for publication.
