-  Extended Abstract (1-2 pages) 
-  Short Paper (2-4 pages),

1.a Requirements:

Blind review condition: VP4S-06 reviewing is double blind: authors do not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers do not know the names of the authors. 

Dual submission : By submitting this manuscript to VP4S-06, the authors assert that it has not been previously published in substantially similar form, and no paper currently under submission to a conference contains significant overlap with this one. 

Size and language: Papers should be written in English,  complete, and have eight double-column pages maximum.  

1.b Formatting:

Papers must be submitted in PDF format. To obtain the PDF format, please use the template files provided in this directory, which contains:

  • A sample paper: crv-template.pdf

  • Word (.doc) template: crv-template.doc

  • LaTeX template: zipped file containing crv-template.tex and other needed files .

    If you use the template, instead of PAPER ID (since you don't know it) please use PAPER KEYWORD. 

    LaTeX users, please try  to generate .pdf from your .tex file using pdflatex command!
