Titles and short abstracts: this year,
authors are required to submit a paper title and short abstract about
100 words before submitting their paper (see
the important dates below).
Papers: The address, telephone number,
FAX number, and e-mail address of the contact author should appear on the
title page of the submission. Submissions should be limited to 10
pages (with font size at least 11 pts) and may consist of extended abstracts.
Each submission must provide sufficient detail to allow the program
committee to assess its merits and should include appropriate references
comparisons with the literature.
It is recommended that each submission begin with a succinct statement
of the problem, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation
of their significance and relevance to the conference, all suited for the
non-specialist. Technical development of the work, directed to the
specialist, should follow. If the authors believe more details are
necessary to substantiate the main claims of the paper, they may include
a clearly marked appendix to be read at the discretion of the committee.
Paper titles and short abstracts (about 100
words) should be received by the PC Chair on or before November 2, 1999.
Papers are due on November 8, 1999. These are firm
deadlines. There will be no exceptions.
Electronic and hard copy submissions are
accepted. Note that for accepted papers, an electronic version of the final
paper is required by the camera-ready copy due date.
Electronic submission of both short abstracts
and papers is strongly preferred. Instructions for electronic submissions
will be posted in Fall 1999 at PODS's home
Hardcopy submissions: If an electronic
submission is not possible, send one copy of the short abstract and 16
copies of the paper to the Program Chair (see address
