All proposals should be approximately 500 words, excluding references. Authors are requested to refrain from citing their own work to preserve anonymity.

All proposals will be blind reviewed. Authors of those selected for presentation at the conference will be notified in the middle of April. The authors will be required to prepare written versions of their presentations in the form of short papers of 2,500-3000 words to be submitted by 31 May 2011. The papers will be included in an unedited volume of the conference proceedings, which will be published on a CD and distributed to the all the participants during the conference.
