Paper Submission

AST 2011 seeks original contributions, ranging from state-of-the-art academic research to industrial and business applications having a significant impact. The symposium will consist of invited talks and regular paper sessions presenting both mature work and new ideas in theoretical research and applications. Submissions are due before May 20th, 2011. All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. The submission of manuscripts must follow the format available at:


The page limit for a full paper is 12 pages. Extended abstracts describing novel research visions, work-in-progress or less mature results are also welcome, with a limit of 4 pages. All contributions should be submitted in PDF format. For diffusion reasons, papers in English are strongly recommended although Spanish and Portuguese are also acceptable. Information on the format of the final copy will be forwarded with the acceptance letter. Each accepted paper should be presented in the symposium, and the presenter must be registered in the conference.
