All submission will be handled on-line with EasyChair Conference tool. Before accessing the WSOM 2012 page at EasyChair you have to create an account in EasyChair.

All submissions will be reviewed by three independent experts of the paper’s subject area. For an accepted paper to appear in the WSOM 2012 proceedings, its presenter must register for the workshop at the time of submission of the final camera-ready version.
In the printed proceedings, illustrations are generally black and white (halftones), and only in exceptional cases, and if the author is prepared to cover the extra cost for color reproduction, are colored pictures accepted. Colored pictures are welcome in the electronic version free of charge. If you include colored figures that are to be printed in black and white, please make sure that they really are legible in black and white. Some colors as well as the contrast of converted colors show up very poorly when printed in black and white.
