Authors can submit a paper in one of the following categories:

* Research Papers describe original research, where novelty is a
primary consideration.

* Experience Papers describe experiences with existing systems, where
lessons from the experience are a primary consideration.

* Vision Papers describe speculative but well-reasoned and thought-provoking
ideas, where insight is a primary consideration.

Submissions will be judged based on their originality, technical merit,
relevance, value to the community, and likelihood of producing interesting
discussions at the symposium. Submissions will be kept confidential until
accepted. Rejected submissions will be kept confidential permanently.

Submissions must be entered online at the following URL:
Authors must submit original papers that are not being considered for
publication in other forums. Submissions cannot be accompanied by
nondisclosure, confidentiality, or similar agreements. Submissions must be in
PDF format using 10-point font on 12-point leading, Times-Roman or similar
typeface, letter-sized paper, double column, a text block of 6.5 inches wide
by 9 inches tall, with numbered pages. A LaTeX template is available at
but authors can use other templates or editors that conform with the
requirements. Submissions can have up to 12 pages, including title, author
list, and abstract, but excluding references. After the author list, papers
should indicate the submission type (research, experience, vision). Papers
that violate these requirements will be rejected without reviews. Judicious
use of color is permitted, but the paper should print clearly in black and
white. Non-rejected papers will be shepherded, and final acceptance will be
conditional on the shepherd?s approval.

Details and deadlines for poster submissions are available in the call for
posters. Papers accepted to the conference are automatically allowed to have
a poster.
