SBRN  Paper Submission Instructions

Like previous SBRN editions, we expect the proceedings to be published by CPS, a division of IEEE CS Press. Selected papers will be published in special issues of several international journals (to be announced).

Papers must be written in English and must not be longer than 6 pages, including all tables, figures, and references (style of the IEEE Computer Society Press). Formatting instructions, as well as templates for Word and LaTeX, can be downloaded here:  tex template (zip file)  and Word Template (zip file)

The deadline for paper registration/upload is
March 22nd., 23:55 BRST.

Special Sessions
There are seven different tracks to submit a paper. The tracks are on the side.
In the first one (
regular) the paper is submitted to SBRN general track. The other six tracks, as described on the side, refer to Special Sessions
of SBRN.All accepted papers, regular and special sessions will appear in the SBRN proceedings.
The Special Sessions are organized and chaired by senior researchers who have knowledge of, and a special interest in, the topic of the Session.
One of the aims of these sessions is to provide Organizers and participants with an opportunity to concentrate on focused topics in the areas related to the conference. Both the emerging research areas, as well as the application issues can be targeted. The deadline for paper registration/upload on Special Sessions or regular track is
March 22nd., 23:55 BRST.

Reviewing Process 
All submitted papers (regular and special session papers) will be reviewed by at least two experts in the field.

 Submission Policy
By submitting papers to SBRN 2010, the authors agree that in case of acceptance at least one author registers to the conference and presents the paper. Furthermore, it is the conference policy that at least one of the authors of accepted papers has to register *before* the deadline for sending the camera-ready paper. Accepted papers without the respective author registration *before* the deadline will not be included in the proceedings.
