Submission
----------

There are two categories of submissions:

(A) Submissions to the formal proceedings
    These submissions must describe unpublished work. Accepted submissions
    of this category will be published both in the informal and in the
    formal proceedings. The formal proceedings will be published after the
    workshop by Elsevier as a volume of ENTCS.

(B) Submissions to the informal proceedings
    These submissions may also describe work that has been or will be
    submitted or published elsewhere or work in progress. Accepted
    submissions of this category will be published in the informal
    proceedings, which will be distributed during the workshop. 

The page limit for papers in both categories is 15 pages in ENTCS style.
We also explicitly solicit survey and tutorial submissions (of either
category) which may be longer. The necessary style files and instructions
can be found at http://www.entcs.org/prelim.html. The submission page for
