Longer submissions will not be reviewed.
- Provide an abstract of fewer
than 200 words.

and compatible with
Acrobat (English version), not

you use only standard fonts.

Once submitted to ICNP, a paper
cannot be submitted to another workshop, conference or
journal until the ICNP acceptance decision is known. To
do so is to risk wasting one of our community's scarcest
resources: reviewer effort. Similarly, a paper that is
under consideration elsewhere, including a workshop or
journal, cannot simultaneously be submitted to ICNP.
If some of the material in a
submission has appeared in a workshop, the paper should
so indicate. This is only acceptable if the paper
submitted to ICNP provides substantial additional
results compared to the earlier or pending publication.
Papers are being handled through
a CMT (Microsoft
Research's Conference Management Tool) server. To begin the submission process, click on
the link below. Please indicate the topics/keywords
relevant to your paper when registering it, as these
will be used to match papers to reviewers. Please note
the HARD deadline for registering the title and
the abstract of the paper:
Pacific Standard Time (PST), May 6, 2005. The
deadline for submitting the actual paper (that has
already been registered) is May
12, 2005, 11:59pm PST.
