Format of the Conference
The conference program will include presentation of invited papers, oral
presentations, and poster/demonstration sessions. Papers will be presented in
plenary or topic oriented sessions.

Social events including a trip in the vicinity of Brno will allow for additional
informal interactions.

Submission of Papers
Authors are invited to submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages formatted in
the LNCS style (see below). Those accepted will be presented either orally or as
posters. The decision about the presentation format will be based on the
recommendation of the reviewers. The authors are asked to submit their papers
using the on-line form accessible from the conference website.

Papers submitted to TSD 2008 must not be under review by any other conference or
publication during the TSD review cycle, and must not be previously published or
accepted for publication elsewhere.

As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors' names and
affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity,
e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", should be avoided. Instead, use
citations such as "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...". Papers that do
not conform to the requirements above are subject to be rejected without review.

The authors are strongly encouraged to write their papers in TeX or LaTeX
formats. These formats are necessary for the final versions of the papers that
will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes. Authors using a WORD
compatible software for the final version must use the LNCS template for WORD
and within the submit process ask the Proceedings Editors to convert the paper
to LaTeX format. For this service a service-and-license fee of CZK 1500 will be
levied automatically.

The paper format for review has to be either PDF or PostScript file with all
required fonts included. Upon notification of acceptance, presenters will
receive further information on submitting their camera-ready and electronic
sources (for detailed instructions on the final paper format see

Authors are also invited to present actual projects, developed software or
interesting material relevant to the topics of the conference. The presenters of
the demonstration should provide the abstract not exceeding one page. The
demonstration abstracts will not appear in the conference proceedings.
