Fast Abstract

•April 24, 2009: Decision notification (electronic)
•April 30, 2009: Deadline for camera-ready copy and pre-registration

The Fast Abstract at COMPSAC will provide an international forum for researchers working in computers, 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.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to, software and middleware development for distributed platforms, social and collaborative networks, services computing, cloud computing, data center design and applications, communication applications, and mobile and embedded 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:

* Title of the abstract, and name, affiliation, and contact information of each author
* outline the significant problems in the field and their preliminary ideas for the solution(s)
* present the results achieved so far
* explicitly describe the expected contributions of the proposed work

Detailed instructions for electronic paper submission can be found at COMPSAC2009 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.
