Accepted papers must follow the typing instructions, which can be downloaded from the conference web site: see above .  

During your paper registration, please ensure that:
- your complete affiliation including your postal address, phone, fax and e-mail is up to date.
- you indicate the paper title including all co-authors.


Manuscripts must be submitted in electronic form only. The accepted electronic file format is Portable Document Format (PDF). When transmitting their paper, authors of accepted papers are considered to have read and accepted the Copyright policy (Copyright Agreement.pdf) .
It is recommended to use the WTC2010 Paper Template or the LaTex for preparing the manuscript. 

All submissions will be assessed on the basis of quality, novelty and relevance to the conference themes. Acceptance of a paper and publication in the proceedings is conditional on at least one author registering at the full rate and presenting the paper at the conference.

At least one full registration is required per paper. Inclusion of accepted papers in the conference proceedings CD-ROM is conditional upon receiving payment for at least one full registration per paper latest by May 15th, 2010.
Please note that we must be able to print your paper once it is submitted. Due to the large variety of systems available for formatting papers and producing PDF files, printing is not always possible for some systems.

The use of standard printer fonts is strongly preferred over TeX fonts, if possible. (you can download the PDF Creator:   or  the PDF Acrobat Reader ).
