Important Dates
Paper Submission Deadline August 1, 2010
Notification of Decisions October 15, 2010
Conference Dates February 9-12, 2011

Paper Format
Papers must report original research not accepted or under submission to any journal or conference with public proceedings (previous submissions in informal workshops or as posters are allowed, but must be indicated).
Papers must be formatted according to ACM guidelines and style files to fit within 10 pages, including references, diagrams, and appendices if any. A submitted paper must be self-contained and in English.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format to the paper submission Web site:, by August 1, 2010. PDF files must have all non-standard fonts embedded. After upload, please check the copy stored on the site. Submissions that do not view or print properly may be rejected without a chance to rectify the problem. Please contact for any questions.

Note that there is no separate process for poster submissions.

Review Process
Each paper will be reviewed by at least three regular PC members and one or two senior PC members and is single-blind (that is, the identity of authors is known to the reviewers). Decisions will take into account novelty, technical depth, elegance, practical application, impact, and presentation.

All the accepted papers with full length of 10 pages will be asked to make poster presentations at the conference. A subset of selected papers will be invited for oral presentations.

All accepted papers are published in the ACM Digital Library. Selected accepted papers will be invited to submit their expanded versions for publication in the ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology (ACM TIST, through an expedient review and publication process.
