You will be asked whether your submission concerns the main conference
or the workshop. BUT in order to ensure an anonymous reviewing
procedure, please double-check that the file which you upload is completely
anonymous and does not contain any information that identifies the authors.
Uploaded files must be in Portable Document Format (.pdf). Pdf files carry
information about users in the Document Properties (CTRL-D or
file/document properties). Please make sure that no traces regarding
authors remain.

Please note that once you upload your abstract, it will not be possible to
clean up the author's identifying information. We will not touch it before the
reviewers download it.

If you have problems while uploading your abstract, please DO NOT repeat
the submission procedure several times: the submission software does not
allow us to cancel submissions. Rather, contact us: if the wrong abstract
was uploaded, we will be able to replace it with an updated version, you will
just have to send us the latest version.

-abstracts are no longer than two pages, with an eventual third page
containing examples and references
