      The conference program will include presentation of invited papers,
      oral presentations, and poster/demonstration sessions. Papers will
      be presented in plenary or topic oriented sessions.

      Social events including a trip in the vicinity of Brno will allow
      for additional informal interactions.


      Authors are invited to submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages
      formatted in the LNCS style (see below). Those accepted will be
      presented either orally or as posters. The decision about the
      presentation format will be based on the recommendation of the
      reviewers. The authors are asked to submit their papers using the
      on-line form accessible from the conference website.

      Papers submitted to TSD 2008 must not be under review by any other
      conference or publication during the TSD review cycle, and must not be
      previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere.

      As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors'
      names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the
      author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...",
      should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously
      showed (Smith, 1991) ...". Papers that do not conform to the
      requirements above are subject to be rejected without review.

      The authors are strongly encouraged to write their papers in TeX
      or LaTeX formats. These formats are necessary for the final
      versions of the papers that will be published in the Springer
      Lecture Notes. Authors using a WORD compatible software for the
      final version must use the LNCS template for WORD and within the
      submit process ask the Proceedings Editors to convert the paper
      to LaTeX format. For this service a service-and-license fee of
      CZK 1500 will be levied automatically.

      The paper format for review has to be either PDF or PostScript file
      with all required fonts included. Upon notification of acceptance,
      presenters will receive further information on submitting their
      camera-ready and electronic sources (for detailed instructions on
      the final paper format see

      Authors are also invited to present actual projects, developed
      software or interesting material relevant to the topics of the
      conference. The presenters of the demonstration should provide the
      abstract not exceeding one page. The demonstration abstracts will not
      appear in the conference proceedings.
