SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

   Prospective authors are invited to submit their full paper
   (about 5 to 7 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12) to
   Prof. H. R. Arabnia by Feb. 25, 2008 (hra@cs.uga.edu). email
   submissions in MS Doc or PDF formats are preferable.  All
reasonable
   typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted
   papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format
   to prepare their papers for publication.)

   The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited
to
   7 (IEEE style) pages.  Papers must not have been previously
published
   or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.  The first page
of
   the draft paper should include: title of the paper, name,
affiliation,
   postal address, and email address of each author as well as the
name
   of the conference the paper is being submitted to (ie, FECS'08).
   The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author
   and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
   content of the paper.

   Each paper will be refereed by two experts in the field who are
   independent of the conference program committee.  The referees'
   evaluations will then be reviewed by one member of the program
   committee who will recommend a decision to the co-chairs of the
track.
   The track chairs will make the final decision.  Lastly, the Camera-
Ready
   papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee.

CONFERENCE SPONSORS:

   The list of co-sponsors of FECS'08 will soon be finalized which
   will include research laboratories and centers affiliated with
major
   institutions.  The reputation and caliber of the co-sponsors of the
