INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS

Electronic Submissions: All papers and abstracts should be submitted electronically following the instructions and link at the conference web page dna18.au.dk. Papers  must be submitted in PDF format. The use of LATEX is strongly encouraged for Track A submissions, as it will be required for the revised manuscript included in the LNCS proceedings of accepted papers.

TRACKS

I. Paper and/or oral presentation submission

Authors submitting a paper and/or proposal for a presentation may choose between two submission tracks.The submission site will open by February 2, 2012 and close on April 15, 2012 at 11:59pm (EASTERN TIME).

Track A - Full Paper: For authors who want their full papers  to be published  in the conference proceedings. Submissions  will be considered  for oral presentation. Submissions  should conform to the following guidelines:

  • The  total length of the paper should not exceed 12 pages and should be formatted in LATEX  for the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Please follow the formatting instructions at: www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.
  • Each paper should contain an abstract which briefly describes the primary results and their importance.
  • Selected papers will be published in the proceedings, available at the conference and as part of the LNCS series. Submissions to Track A may not be previously published or simultaneously submitted to another conference or journal for publication.

Track B - One-Page Abstract: Primarily for authors submitting experimental results who plan to submit to a journal rather than publish in the conference proceedings. (Abstracts for work recently submitted to or published in a journal will also be considered.) Submissions considered for oral presentation should conform to the following guidelines:

  • The total length of the abstract should not exceed 1 page (11 point type, single spaced, 1 inch margins).
  • The one-page abstract should describe the primary results and their importance.
  • Authors must include a preliminary manuscript, a thesis chapter or some other form of supporting documentation that can be used by the program committee to evaluate the merit of the work for oral presentation. Only the one-page abstract will appear in the supplementary proceedings at the conference. Track B papers unaccompanied by adequate documentation will not be eligible for oral presentation.

II. Poster submissions

For authors interested in presenting their work only in the poster session, the abstract submission will be through the same website http://dna18.au.dk/ which will open on February 2, 2012 and will close for poster abstract submission on June 1, 2012. Submissions should conform to the following guidelines:

  • The total length of the abstract should not exceed 1 page (11 point type, single spaced, 1 inch margins).
  • The one-page abstract should describe the primary results and their importance.

We encourage submissions that didn't make the final cut for oral presentation to be resubmitted, with an appropriate 1 page abstract, for poster presentation as deadlines make this possible.
