Submit this information on-line Submission procedure

In case of impossibility of using on-line submission, please submit the same information by email to fois2004@irit.fr.

After submitting your abstract, a message will be sent to you, with a link to follow to submit the full paper by May 7th.


Full paper submission:
Please prepare a PDF file of maximum 5000 words to upload on the website using the link that will be sent to you after the abstract submission.

If necessary, you can make changes to your paper until the deadline. Just upload a new file using the same link again.

To avoid formatting twice your paper, you may already use the style sheets that will be used for producing the final version of accepted papers. With these style sheets, a 5000 word text is about 10 pages long. Note that using these style sheets is not mandatory for the paper submission. Both MSWord and LaTeX files will be accepted for the final versions of accepted papers (we do not need those original files for the current paper submission phase, we only need the PDF file):

Both MSWord and LaTeX files will be accepted for the final versions:

Fois2004.doc is the MSWord template; Fois2004MSW.pdf is the corresponding PDF file.

Fois2004.tex and ios-fois.cls are the needed LaTeX files. Fois2004LTX.pdf is the corresponding PDF file.

Whatever the word processor you use, be sure to upload a PDF file! We cannot accept submission of MSWord or LaTeX files, because of the risk of loosing formatting, graphics or special characters.


Again, if you cannot upload your paper on-line, send the PDF file to fois2004@irit.fr.
