Submission Guidelines

Login to the online Conference Management System -->
Submitting your contribution requires an account for the conference management system. You will easily get this account by following the link "New User? Sign Up Here" at the start page of the system. Registration at the conference management system does not imply any obligations for you, in particular it is not a registration to the conference. Like last year the conference management system is provided by Microsoft Research. Please do not submit your contribution via email. In the case of serious troubles during the submission, please contact the chairs (tmra@informatik.uni-leipzig.de).
We invite original, high quality submissions with substantial contributions to the objectives of TMRA 2008, published in the call for papers. In 2008 the TMRA proceedings will appear in the LIV series, published by the University of Leipzig. It is assured, that the proceedings are indexed by DBLP and Google Scholar. The conference language is English.
Submissions of five categories are invited:
- full papers to be published (only scientific tracks)
- short papers to be published (scientific and industrial tracks)
- presentation proposals (only industrial tracks)
- posters (scientific and industrial tracks)
- demonstrations (scientific and industrial tracks).
Should I decide about the category of my submission? Yes. When submitting your contribution, you should indicate the intended category (full paper, short paper, etc.). Please be aware that your submission might be accepted for another category (i.e. a short paper will be accepted as poster). In this case, the rules for the accepted category apply for your contribution.
When submitting your paper, please indicate in the submission form the intended category for your contribution. During the submission workflow you will be asked about your decision.
TMRA 2008 will have scientific and industrial tracks. What is the difference between them? It's a simple decision schema. While submissions to the industrial track should attract an industrial audience, submissions to the scientific track should attract a scientific audience.
When submitting your paper, please indicate in the submission form the track you submit your paper to. During the submission workflow you will be asked about your decision.
Should I anonymise my contribution? No. The review process of TMRA 2008 implements a conflict resultion schema. Authors and Reviewers has to disclose their conflicts with certain persons, so according author/reviewer pairs will be avoided. It's a simple decision schema. Please do not anonymise your contribution.
Do I get any compensation for presenting at TMRA 2008? No. Like at all academic conferences, each presenter at TMRA 2008 has equally to register to the conference, paying the regular conference fees. Applying this modus operandi allows to have low rates for all participants. If your contribution for the conference will be accepted, at least one author has to register for TMRA 2008.
