    **NOTES: New and Different: Please Read Carefully

    The ICMC97 organizers are targeting a single track conference, and as such there will be strict limitations on oral presentation time, as well as the traditional page limitations for publishing the Proceedings. Carefully select your Submission Category based on the following criteria:

    1) Do you really need 8 pages, knowing that when the paper is compared to other long paper submissions it might not be accepted at all? (see *Submission and Selection Notes* below)
    2) Do you really need the extra time to present?
    3) Are there other authors, specifically co-workers on large projects, with which you could combine your submission into a long paper?
    4) Would your work be better suited to a demo and/or poster, given the new Exhibition Hall format available at ICMC 97? (see "Notes on Posters, Demos, Presentations" below)

    **Submission and Selection Notes:

    Please Read Carefully

    Your submission should demonstrate SIGNIFICANT new and original work in the area. Paper readers will be instructed to judge your submission relative to the category (long paper, short paper, etc.) in which you have submitted. They will be asked to determine if they feel that the described work has been accomplished, if it represents significant new work, and if they feel that it appropriately matches the submitted category. That is, if you submit a long paper and it receives a low score from the papers jury, the papers panel will not automatically recategorize your submission to a short paper and accept it. Short papers are not considered any less important than long papers, they are just shorter and there will be more of them accepted than long papers. Due to the number of pages available, your paper will stand a higher likelihood of acceptance for publication if it is submitted as a short paper or poster.

    **NOTES on Posters Demos Studio Reports and Presentations:

    Posters Demos and Studio Reports will be juried. They will be subjected to the same selection process as all other submissions for publication. They will be presented in ICMC 97 sponsored Booths at the Exhibition Hall.

    Items submitted as Presentations will not be juried. You can submit directly for a Presentation if you don't need the paper published in the Proceedings. All registered ICMC participants that have submitted a Presentation will receive time and space for this in the Exhibition Hall. Studios should consider renting a booth. (See Exhibition Hall Booth Registration Form).

    All items displayed in the Exhibition Hall will get wide public exposure, as this area is freely open to the public as well as to registered ICMC participants.
