      SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

      Prospective authors are invited to submit their full paper
      (about 5 to 7 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12) to
      Prof. H. R. Arabnia by Feb. 25, 2008 (hra@...). email
      submissions in MS Doc or PDF formats are preferable. All reasonable
      typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted
      papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format
      to prepare their papers for publication.)

      The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to
      7 (IEEE style) pages. Papers must not have been previously published
      or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The first page of
      the draft paper should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation,
      postal address, and email address of each author as well as the name
      of the conference the paper is being submitted to (ie, GEM'08).
      The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author
      and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
      content of the paper.

      Each paper will be refereed by two experts in the field who are
      independent of the conference program committee. The referees'
      evaluations will then be reviewed by one member of the program
      committee who will recommend a decision to the co-chairs of the track.
      The track chairs will make the final decision. Lastly, the Camera-Ready
      papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee.
