Please note that you will need to submit two documents:

Please follow the guidelines below as you prepare your submission.


The abstract submission includes a description (100-300 words) of the paper and an indication of the key topics of the paper.

Your paper should be in PDF format with letter-size paper. Submissions must be viewable by Adobe Acrobat Reader (version 7.0 or higher). Your submission may not exceed 10 pages of conference two column paper format using 10pt fonts.

Final papers MUST be formatted to IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript Formatting Guidelines. We provide links to the IEEE instructions and templates here for your convenience:

Reviewing for PACT09 is not double-blind, so there is no need to anonymize your submission.

The program chairs will summarily return submissions exceeding the page limit or not conforming to style guidelines.

The submission site requires that authors attach a text file. This file must contain the name and affiliation of any conflict of any author of the submission. The list must be in alphabetical order by last name, with last name listed first, like this:
