Paper Submission Guidelines
The PERFORMANCE 2007 conference requires that papers should not be submitted simultaneously to any other conference or publication, and that submissions should not be previously published. All submitted papers will be judged based on their originality, technical standards, relevance, and clarity. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an Elsevier copyright transfer form. Full papers will be published in a special issue of the Journal Performance Evaluation (Elsevier) available at the conference. The formatting requirements and submission instructions are given below. Authors who cannot submit their papers electronically should inform the PC chairs at papers.perf2007(at)tlc.polito.xyz.it (remove .xyz to obtain correct address).
Formatting Guidelines
Submissions should not exceed 22 double-spaced pages and at least a 10 point font, larger if possible. This length includes everything: figures, tables, references, appendices, and so forth. Your goal as an author is to produce a clearly readable submission within these constraints.

PERFORMANCE 2007 does not use a double-blind review process, authors should put their last names and affiliations on their papers.

The paper must be submitted in PDF or Postscript format. We must be able to display and print your submission exactly as we receive it using only standard tools (Adobe Acrobat Reader for PDF and Ghostview for PS, with no loading of special fonts) and a postscript printer; please note that most personal printers (e.g., inkjet) are not postscript printers. Make sure that the paper prints well on black-and-white printers, not color printers. This is especially true for plots and graphs in the paper. Last, make sure that the output has been formatted for printing well both on LETTER (8.5" by 11") and A4 (210mm by 297mm) paper sizes.

Further guidelines can be found at LaTeX file guidelines.
