**Note that dates have recently changed (on 17/2/2005),
and now we have a final deadline!!**

- Paper submission deadline: March 7 2005 (11:59PM US Eastern time)
- Notification of acceptance: April 25 2005
- Deadline for revised papers: May 25 2005
- Symposium: July 20-23 2005

We will accept papers
*only* as PDF files with a limit of 10 pages in two-column
format (note new page limit; previous limit was 8 pages!!).
Guidelines are available in a PDF file and in a word file
at the site
http://www.sipta.org/isipta05/submit.html.
The simplest way to produce an article that satisfies these requirements
is to use Latex with the isipta2005.sty style, using guidelines
at the file isipta05.tex (or using this file as a template).
Otherwise, use the file isipta2005.doc as template.

Submission is electronic. You should introduce paper data and attach the PDF file by using the submission page.

The Program Committee will decide which of the submitted papers are accepted, by carefully evaluating their originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. All the accepted papers will be included in a volume of proceedings, published by Brightdocs.

There will be free electronic access to the proceedings after some time. Before the conference, the electronic access will be restricted to the ISIPTA '05 attendees to allow them to study the papers in some detail before they are actually presented. Each accepted paper will be given the opportunity for both a brief oral presentation as well as a poster session.
