All submissions will be refereed by experts in the field based on originality, significance, quality and clarity. Every submitted paper to this special session will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee.

Three kinds of papers can be submitted to this special session:

  1. Long papers consisting of original, relevant and previously unpublished sound research results, related to any of the topics of the conference, with a maximum of 8 pages.
  2. Short papers can be project reports, a summary of a PhD thesis or work in progress, with no more than 4 pages.
  3. Doctoral papers PhD students are invited to present the topic and progress of their research, in order to get some feedback from a panel of experts. The length of these papers should not exceed 8 pages.

Papers must comply with Springer's templates (rather MS-Word or LaTeX) for the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing volume series.

NOTICE: All papers must be submitted in electronic form (PDF format) through the SOCO 2010 conference management system.
