The Fast Abstract at COMPSAC will provide an international forum for researchers working in computer software and applications (or related fields) to exchange preliminary yet novel research ideas, daring or robust industrial practices, and burning and emerging education and curriculum issues.
In coordination with the technical theme of COMPSAC 2008, topics pertaining to software engineering of critical infrastructure systems such as civil, telecommunications, and medical systems will be of particular interest. Related topics include, but are not limited to, requirements analysis, co-analysis and co-design, modeling, design, development, testing, measurement, verification and validation for performance, safety, security, and dependability constraints of such systems. As effective construction of critical infrastructure systems is not limited solely to the field of computer science and engineering and is truly a multidisciplinary effort, submissions addressing multidisciplinary research topics are particularly encouraged.
All accepted abstracts will be published in the electronic conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society.


Submissions will be judged on originality, overall contribution, technical merit, presentation quality and relevance to the conference topics. It is anticipated that each submission will be reviewed by at least two members from the program committee.
Each abstract submission should:
Detailed instructions for electronic paper submission can be found at COMPSAC2008 Fast Abstract Submission Site. The length of the initial submission and camera-ready versions of the abstract should be limited to 2 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages printed in 10-12 point font. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers. Each participating author and the accepted abstract are required to pay the full registration fee to the conference.
All invited participants will be asked to provide a poster describing their work, which will be displayed throughout the conference. Each accepted abstract must be presented in person by at least one author, in a 20-minute timeslot with 10 minutes for the presentation and 10 minutes for discussion and feedback.
