Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper with at most 12 pages (STACS style or similar – e.g. LaTeX article style, 11pt a4paper).  The title page must contain a classification of the topic covered, preferably using the list of topics above. The paper should
contain a succinct statement of the issues and of their motivation, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance, accessible to non-specialist readers. Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be put into an appendix to be read by the program committee members at their discretion. Submissions deviating from these guidelines risk rejection. Electronic submissions should be formatted in PostScript or PDF.

Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings is not allowed.

Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the Symposium. As usual, these proceedings will appear in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series, based at Schloss Dagstuhl. This guarantees perennial, free and easy electronic access, while the authors will retain the rights over their work.  In addition, the proceedings will also be available as archives in the open access electronic repositories HAL and arXiv. With their submission, authors consent to sign a license authorizing the  program committee chairs to organize the electronic publication of their paper if it is accepted. Further details are available on and on the conference website, Participants of the conference will receive a USB-stick with an electronic version of the proceedings.  It is also planned to publish in a journal a selection of papers.

Deadline for submission:  September 24, 2010
Notification to authors:  November 29, 2010
Final version:              January 3, 2011
Symposium:                March 10-12, 2011
