Final version due: September 21, 2013

Publication
The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Selected papers will be invited to special issues of Algorithmica and International Journal of Computational Geometry and Applications.

Paper Submission
The submission should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation and a comparison with related work. The main text, including title, abstract, and references, should not exceed 11 pages in LNCS style. An optional appendix should be used to provide proof details that do not fit in the main text. Submitted papers must describe unpublished work.

At least one author of an accepted paper is expected to present the paper at the conference as a registered participant.

Awards
A Best Paper and a Best Student Paper may be awarded. A paper is eligible for the Best Student Paper Award if all authors are full-time students at the time of submission. To indicate that a submission is eligible, please add the phrase "Eligible for the Best Student Paper Award" in the abstract.
