Submissions should be in PDF, Postscript or ASCII format, and follow the LNCS instructions (see 'Proceedings' below). Submissions by other electronic formats, such as a word processor source file, or by fax are not accepted. The Web submission form is the preferred procedure. However, if you don't have access to the Internet, or you don't have an appropriate Web browser, you may send your extended abstract or paper by e-mail to the Program Co-Chair Johann Blieberger. Please attach a short abstract of your paper in ASCII and characterize your submission by giving one or more of the categories listed in section "Topics". If electronic submission is not available, please send five paper copies. For e-mail or paper submissions, the body of the electronic message or the first page should identify the submission as a paper or extended abstract, and should include in plain text: the title; name, current affiliation, postal address, e-mail address, telephone and fax of each author; the name of the designated contact person; a short abstract; and a list of keywords ordered by relevance, including, whenever possible, topics and subtopics taken from the list of topics of the conference. If the paper is submitted in Postscript, please be sure to select the option "optimize for portability" in your printer driver.

To enable publication of the accepted papers before the conference, strict adherence to the dates of the schedule is essential. Authors of extended abstracts must be prepared to submit a full version of their paper before February 10, 2002.


The proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer, and will be available at the start of the conference. See the LNCS Authors Instructions page ( ).
