SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

The AIRS 2009 proceedings will be published as LNCS,
so please follow the default author instructions available at
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0

In addition, please "anonymise" your paper to facilitate blind
reviewing, and make sure your paper is no longer than 12 pages in
the LNCS format. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines
will be rejected unconditionally. Duplicate submissions (the same
paper being submitted to AIRS 2009 and to another conference
at the same time), if detected, will also be rejected. Please
upload your paper to the START submission system at
https://www.softconf.com/s08/AIRS2009/
by April 19, 2009. The Program Committee will carefully review it
and decide whether it should be accepted (either as a 12-page
paper or as a 6-page poster) or not.

Once your paper gets accepted, you will be asked to send us a
signed copyright form available at the above Springer website.
At least one author per paper must present the work at the
conference. For updates, please visit the AIRS 2009 website.
