Paper Submission

The submission should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation and a clear comparison with related work. The main text of the submission, including title, abstract, and references, should not exceed 10 pages in LNCS style. An optional appendix should be used to provide proof details that do not fit in the main text. Submitted papers must describe work not previously published.
