Submission Details

In line with other WETICE 2010 workshops COPECH intends to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss the key issues, approaches, open problems, innovative applications, and trends in this research area. We encourage submissions of full papers (6-10 pages) and position papers (2-6 pages) presenting novel ideas that may lead to insightful technical discussions at the workshop.
Papers should contain original contributions not published or submitted elsewhere, and references to related state-of-the-art work. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their views of the field at the oral presentation. Papers should follow the IEEE format, which is single spaced, two columns, 10 pt Times/Roman font. Papers should include a title, the name and affiliation of each author, an abstract of up to 150 words and no more than eight keywords. Authors should also provide contact addresses, if different from the submitting electronic address.
All submissions should be electronic (in PDF) and will be peer-reviewed by at least three program committee members. Full papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the proceedings, published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Note that at least one author from each accepted paper should register to attend WETICE 2010 to get the paper published in the Post-conference Proceedings. Please submit your paper in PDF format by accessing the easy Chair Submission Site (

You can also send it by email to the Workshop chair ( if you experience problems with the easyChair Web site. If you have further questions or remarks, please do not hesitate to contact the workshop organizers.
