Regardless of the type of submission, the Workshop’s Programme Committee may suggest papers to be accepted as full-paper (6 pages), short-paper (4 pages) or poster (2 pages). Full papers will be included in the Conference’s main Proceedings, both on paper and on CD support, whereas short papers will be included only in the proceedings on CD support. The papers selected for presentation during the Workshop, to be include in the Proceedings, are subject to the condition that at least one of the co-authors performs a full-registration at the conference and ensures its oral presentation.
Historically, all editions of the CISTI Conference have been indexed by Thomson’s ISI. This 7th edition is additionally a Conference with the formal support of IEEE. Therefore, the published papers will be made available on the Xplore digital library and will also be indexed by Inspec and Scopus. They will also be made available and indexed by EBSCO.

Important Dates

· Paper submission: February 17, 2012

· Paper acceptance/rejection notification: March 30, 2012

· Camera-ready version and registration due: April 13, 2012

Paper Submission and Formatting Guidelines

We invite prospective authors to submit their contributions, not yet published, reporting on either work under development or concluded projects about theoretical aspects or practical applications related to the topics of the workshop. Contributions can be submitted in one of the three formats of the Conference, namely as full paper (6 pages), as short paper (4 pages), or as poster (2 pages).
The paper preparation must follow the formatting guidelines ( ) of the Conference (DOT, PDF), and should be written either in English, in Portuguese or in Spanish. All contributions must be submitted in PDF format, through the EasyChair platform ( ). At least three members from the workshop’s Programme Committee will assess and comment on each submission, following a “blind-review” process. Therefore, authors should take special care to delete their names and affiliation from the paper during the reviewing phase, as well as obfuscate any other references in the text that can possibly identify them.
