SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Friday, 20 April 2007

Camera ready file preparation and submission
Late-breaking papers will be briefly examined for relevance
and minimum standards of acceptability, but will not
be peer reviewed in detail. Paper acceptance decisions
will be made as soon as possible after receipt of the
submission, until the 20 April 2007 deadline.
Note that at least one author of each accepted Late
Breaking Paper must register for the conference by 20
April 2007, must attend the conference and present the
paper at the scheduled time. Papers with no authors registered
by the deadline will not appear in the Late-Breaking
Papers section of the CD-ROM.
Authors will individually retain copyright (and all
other rights) to their late-breaking papers and should
feel free to submit them (either before or after the
above deadline) for publication by other conferences
or journals. However, authors must submit an ACM permission
to publish form.
Because the late-breaking papers are published on a
very tight time schedule, please be very attentive in
carrying out the requirements for submission by 20 April

to comply with ACM format requirements, and no longer
than EIGHT (8) pages in length, to the submissions website

Please be very careful about formatting your paper (and
testing it, by printing it out) because of the very tight
time schedule. No paper-based submissions can be accepted.
No deadline extensions will be granted. Since there will
be no opportunity for revisions, authors should be especially
careful that their original submission is fully compliant
with all requirements above.
