As with last year’s BTW, there will be three opportunities to participate (paper, presentation or short “Elevator talk”). All attendees are encouraged to participate. For papers and presentations, the Program Committee invites original submissions of at least 1,000 and at most 5,000 words focusing on new concepts and methodologies. Full paper submissions are preferred and recommended but the Program Committee will accept extended abstracts. A one paragraph submission is required for Elevator Talks.

Electronic submission in Adobe PDF via the workshop web page (see below) is mandatory. The web site also informs about the review criteria. Please identify a contact author with complete information (mailing address, phone number, fax number and e-mail address).

Proceedings: Following the event, BTW08 will post presentations and papers from the accepted contributions whose authors wish to provide the corresponding materials on the BTW web site.
