Authors are invited to submit short papers (4 pages excluding references, written in English and in LNCS 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 will be evaluated based on the proposed idea, methodology and foreseen impact. Authors of the papers should only be the student and his/her advisor(s). Accepted submissions will be published in the AIMS 2015 proceedings. Submit to the PhD workshop now.
