unless otherwise requested. Submissions imply that at least one 
author will register for the conference and present at the time 
designated in the program.  All submissions must be in either MS Word or PDF

will be published by Kluwer publisher. For viewing IFIP series and published
sample issues, visit http://www.springer.com/series/6102 . Although the
Instructions for submitting a paper for the proceedings will be provided
when the paper is accepted, prospective authors may visit the same web page
