Instructions For Final Submissions
All conference participants with accepted presentation abstracts are invited to update the
abstract of their presentation. This is what will appear in the conference program and it
should consist of no more than 250 words.
In addition, all conference participants with accepted presentation abstracts are invited
to submit full papers that will appear in the conference proceedings and will be distributed
on the conference proceedings CD-ROM at the conference. Full papers should have a length
of at most 12 pages, an abstract with a maximum of 250 words, and a keyword list with
no more than 6 keywords. Submission of a full-paper is optional. Those presentations for
which only an abstract was submitted will have that abstract appear on the conference
proceedings CD-ROM in lieu of a full paper.
To ensure the uniformity in format of the papers appearing on the CD-ROM, authors are
required to prepare their papers with LaTeX using the SIAM proceedings class "proceedings.cls"
available here or directly from SIAM at
http://www.siam.org/tex/books/proceedings.zip This is a "zip" file containing all the necessary macros and examples.
Authors are required to submit their papers electronically in PDF format; please do not
submit the original LaTex source. Final paper submissions are due by May 21, 2008.
In order for your paper to be included in the conference proceedings, at least one of
the authors of that paper must have registered for the conference.
