Each submission will be limited to 12 pages in the LNCS paper format. Papers exceeding 12 pages, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further review. Paper submission is handled by the JEMS system, accessible from the AIMS 2009 Web page.

Submissions to the conference are expected to report substantial research results relevant for the subjects listed above.

PhD Student Workshop Submission

The PhD workshop is open to both PhD and prospective PhD students (i.e. graduate students in their last year who intend to pursue a PhD). The workshop provides the opportunity to present, discuss, and obtain feedback from the AIMS 2009 audience about the planned PhD research work. Authors are invited to submit short papers (4 pages, written in English and in PDF format) describing the current state of their research. The paper should include a clear description of the research problem and the chosen approach, argue why the problem is hard and the approach novel, and it should outline the results achieved to date. Specific, low-level technical details should be avoided. Papers should have no more than two authors - the student and the advisor. Accepted submissions will be published in the AIMS proceedings.

Best Paper Award

The program committee will select one paper for the Best Paper Award (all regular papers are eligible). The winner will be presented at the conference.
