A submission implies willingness to register and present the work if the paper is accepted for presentation at the symposium.

Manuscripts will be reviewed by the Technical Program Committee. Authors of accepted full papers, must submit the final manuscript according to the deadline, register for the symposium, and attend to present their papers. The maximum length for final papers is 6 pages, without exceptions.
