Preparing your accepted paper for publication in the Proceedings
Accepted Papers for Proceedings
    Authors whose papers have been accepted for the Conference will have an opportunity to revise their papers before finalizing them for the Proceedings.  Revisions (if any) will be based on feedback/comments from reviewers (unidentified), as described above.  "Camera-ready" papers should comply with the required manuscript format guidelines and submitted to the Program Chair on or before the stipulated Proceedings Submission deadline.  Papers exceeding 10 pages (single-spacing) in length will be subject to a page-overage charge at the rate of U.S. $20.00 per page for publication in the Proceedings.  When submitting the FINALIZED (revised, if applicable) accepted paper for the Proceedings, authors must remove all page numberings from the document.  These instructions and other information will be transmitted to the principal author at the appropriate time.
