Papers will be blind reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee. Therefore, authors’ names and affiliations should not appear in the paper. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.

Authors may submit the same paper at several meetings, but a paper published at this workshop cannot also be published elsewhere. In case of double submission, the authors must notify the workshop organizers in a separate e-mail, so we know that the paper might be withdrawn depending on the results at some other meeting. However, after notification authors will be asked to make a final decision.
