In addition to the paper in pdf form, an extended Abstract must also be submitted (in .doc form) which summarizes the main details and results of the experiments.
Both electronic Working Notes and printed Abstracts will be organized according to the Labs.
If one group participates in more than one Lab, separate reports are to be submitted. Moreover, for those Labs which are subdivided in several tasks, separate reports for different task(s) are to be provided.
The publications will be divided into the following main sections (and sub-sections):
