Submission Guidelines

  • Extended abstracts (or full papers if you wish). No page limits.
  • The extended abstracts (or the introduction of the full papers) must address the following aspects explicitly.
    • Problem: "What is the problem/question/objective?"
    • Motivation: "Why do we work on the problem? What is the importance?"
    • State of the Art: "What has been done already on the problem?"
    • Contribution: "What is the main original contribution?"
    • Main Idea: "What is the main idea underlying the contribution"?
  • Electronic submission as PDF is required.
  • It will be greatly appreciated if the submissions follow the standard Springer Proceedings format llncs.cls.
  • Submit your contribution via our paper submission page at Easy Chair.
  • If you have problems with the submission of your paper or questions concerning EasyChair, please contact support@adg2008.redlog.eu
  • Submit it by June 10, 2008.


  • The submitted contributions will be subject to a summary review by the Program Committee, bearing in mind that this first review is mainly for presentation, NOT for publication.


  • Extended abstracts or full papers accepted for presentation at the workshop will be available during the meeting, published as an internal document for the participants.
  • We plan to ask the authors of the extended abstracts (and possibly full papers) accepted for presentation at the workshop to submit their full and/or revised papers for publication in some formal proceedings of ADG 2008 after the workshop.
  • The full papers (submitted after the meeting) will be formally reviewed by PC members and external referees.
  • It is expected that the accepted full papers will be published as a special issue of some journal or in the Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series.
  • The proceedings of ADG 1996, ADG 1998, ADG 2000, ADG 2002, and ADG 2004, and ADG 2006 appeared as LNAI 1360, LNAI 1669, LNAI 2061, LNAI 2930, LNAI 3763, and LNAI4869 respectively.
