Submission Instructions  

General: Participants are strongly encouraged to submit a paper to CONALD. Submissions will be forwarded to the workshop organizers who will decide about acceptance or rejection of the paper and admission of the author(s) to the workshop. Accepted papers will be collected and distributed to all participants of CONALD. The purpose of the paper submission is two-fold: To give other workshop participants the opportunity to familiarize themselves with a participant's work, and to guide workshop organizers in defining a workshop's scope and agenda.

CONALD solicitates the submissions of two types of papers: position papers and full papers. Position papers are intended to communicate the participant's experience and interest in a specific workshop to other workshop participants. Full papers will allow participants to describe an interesting problem domain in more depth, or to report interesting preliminary results obtained for a topic relevant to the target workshops. Papers are not intended to present finished work. The workshops will be highly informal, and the workshop chairs might decide not to schedule formal presentations.

Review process: Submissions to CONALD will be forward to the respective workshop chairs, who will screen them for suitability and merit. Workshop organizers will make decisions (1) on the inclusion of the paper in the workshop materials, and (2) on admitting the respective author(s) to the workshop. Some workshops will only admit a limited number of participants. Here preference will be given to authors of accepcted papers over authors of rejected papers and participants who did not submit a paper at all. We anticipate that most participants of CONALD will attend two workshops. However, submitting a paper to just one of them is fully acceptable.

Submission format: Unless otherwise specified in the workshop description, position papers are limited to two pages (preferably would be one). Full papers are limited to six pages. Papers must be submitted on 8 1/2 x 11 inch or A4 paper, with margins no smaller than 1 inch. The font must be 10 point or larger. Not every workshop will accept full papers. Please check!

Submission instructions: Papers are directly submitted to a particular workshop. Authors are requested to send 4 (four) copies of their paper to
