will be expected to join ALT in order to present a paper at the meeting.

Notification of acceptance: November 15, 2010

How to submit an abstract
Send your abstract as an email attachment to: alt9hkugmail.com
Subject header: (your last name) alt9 abstract (If you have a common last name,
please include an initial)
Include these things in the body of the email:
- Author's name(s)
- Abstract title
- In case of workshop submission: workshop title, authors and titles of all papers
- Contact information: email, phone, fax

Note: One individual may be involved in a maximum of two papers (maximum
of one as sole author). A workshop presentation by one person counts as a
single-author paper.

Abstract specifications:
Maximum length: 500 words or 1 single-spaced page
Abstracts and papers should be in English.
Put this information at the top of your abstract:
- Title
- Category: oral; poster; either oral or poster
- Format: If at all possible, please send your abstract as a pdf.
- Name: Give your pdf a filename similar to the subject header.

Anonymity: Abstracts must be anonymous. Do not put your name or other
identifying information on the abstract. Also, please anonymize your pdf by
removing identifying information. Usually this can be done using the following
two pull-down menus:
File > document properties > description (remove name of author)
View > comments (though an abstract is unlikely to have comments, check
this and remove any comments, as they will show your username)
View > review tracker (ditto)

If it's your own copy of the software, you might also check:
Acrobat > preferences > identity (to keep your identity off the pdf leave
all fields blank).

Categories of Submission
- Individual oral presentations (single or multiple author): 20 minutes + 10
minutes for discussion
- Posters: One or more poster sessions will be organized, depending on demand.
- Oral or poster: This means you prefer an oral presentation but can also do a
poster. If there are more good abstracts than we can accommodate, the Program
Committee will schedule some as posters. If you choose either category "poster"
or "oral or poster", you will increase your chances of acceptance.
- Workshops (see program)
