(, be  written in English,  and be formatted
using LaTeX.  All submitted papers  will be refereed according  to the
usual MCS refereeing process.

Submission  to  this  special  issue  is  hereby  encouraged  via  the
EasyChair  submission system  (see URL  below).  To  aid  planning and
organization, an early  e-mail of intent to submit  a paper (including
author  information, and  a  tentative title  and  abstract) would  be
