What is an Extended Abstract?
An extended abstract is a research paper whose ideas and significance can be understood in less than an hour.

An extended abstract is not simply a long abstract. An extended abstract usually contains references, comparisons to related work, proofs of key theorems and other details expected in a research paper but not in an abstract.

Few things that can be omitted from an extended abstract: future work, details of proofs or implementation that should seem plausible to reviewers, ramifications not relevant to the key ideas of the abstract. Please note that you are free to arrange the material as you wish.

All submissions must be in English and should be made via the online submission system online. The deadline for submission of your extended abstract is June 15, 2015.

Authors are advised to use the SRS'15 template for the preparation of your extended abstract.
