Submission Deadline: Friday April 28, 2000 (must be RECEIVED by 17:59 EDT).
Abstract format: Authors should submit an extended abstract (not a full paper). The submission should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation and a clear comparison with related work. The length should not exceed ten (10) letter-sized pages (not including the bibliography, and using 11 point or larger font, with ample spacing and margins all around). More details may be given in an appendix, but any material beyond the 10-page limit may be ignored at the discretion of the Program Committee. Abstracts deviating significantly from these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
Authors are encouraged to submit their extended abstracts
electronically. A detailed description of the electronic submission
process will be available at the web site given above.
Authors who do
not wish to submit electronically must submit fifteen printed
copies (double-sided preferred) of an extended abstract, together with
a cover letter to:
Notification: Authors will be sent notification of acceptance or rejection by e-mail on or before July 3, 2000. A final copy of each accepted paper is required by August 31, 2000. This is again a firm deadline. An author of each accepted paper must attend the Symposium and present the paper, or make arrangements to have it presented.
Machtey award: This prize will be given to the best paper written solely by one or more students. An abstract is eligible if all authors are full-time students at the time of submission. This should be indicated to the electronic submission server. The program committee may decline to make the award, or may split it among several papers.
