Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for oral presentation in any of the topics listed above. Submitted papers must present original, non-published work of high quality. Only papers in English will be accepted.

The paper submission types are as follow:

- Regular Paper Submission.
A regular paper presents a work where the research is completed or almost finished. It does not necessary means that the acceptance is as a full paper. It may be accepted as a "full paper" (30 min. oral presentation), or a "short paper" (20 min. oral presentation). The length of the paper should not exceed 10 pages for full papers and 8 pages for short papers (figures and appendices included).

- Tool Demostrations.
The paper must not exceed 4 pages including all text, references and figures. It must contain the problem context, a typical usage scenario, existing tools and their shortcomings, the concepts behind the proposed tool, a graphical overview of the tool's architecture, a short discussion of the technologies used for implementation, a summary of experiments or other experiences with the tool, an outline of missing features and other future work, and the URL of the tool's website (if one exists).

Instructions for preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex formats) are available at the conference Paper Templates web page ( Please also check the web page with the Submission Guidelines. Papers should be submitted electronically via the web-based submission system at:

All accepted papers (full and short) will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support. The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPECC, DBLP and EI (Elsevier Index). All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library ( SCITEPRESS is member of CrossRef (

Additionally, the best papers will have the chance to publish extended and revised versions in a special issue of a Journal in the ISI Journal Citation Reports.
