made. Each hardcopy submission should contain four copies of the paper and
should be sent by postal mail to one of the KEST04 Program Committee Co-
chairs.
     Papers must be written in English. Submissions must not exceed 8 pages for
regular papers or 4 pages for short papers. Each paper should be accompanied by
a title page, including the title of the paper, and author's information
(including names, affiliations, postal addresses and E-mail addresses), an
abstract of less than 200 words, 3-5 keywords, and the title of the track. The
length of the final camera-ready papers will be limited to 8 pages for regular
papers or 4 pages for short papers.  We strongly suggest that you prepare your
manuscript in the style required by Tsinghua University Press

     The deadline for receipt of papers is May 15, 2004 for both electronic and
hardcopy submissions. Papers received after this date will be rejected without
review. Notification of receipt of papers will be sent to the corresponding
author soon after receipt.

POLICY OF MULTIPLE SUBMISSIONS

     KEST04 will not accept any paper which at the time of submission is under
review for, or has already been formally published or accepted for publication
in a journal, book or another conference.  Authors should not submit their
papers elsewhere during the review period.  These policies only apply to
journals, books and conferences and not to informal meetings with limited
audiences.
