Paper Submission

AST 2013 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 April 29th, 2013. 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, in A4 format. All contributions should be submitted in PDF format. The papers should not include any running head or page numbering. 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. Papers that do not fulfill this requirement will not be included in the Symposium Proceedings.

All the symposia at 42 JAIIO use SADIO's conference management system to handle submissions. To upload your contribution you first need to register and sign in. If you have any problems, check the detailed instructions about registration and submission.
