Submissions:

Authors are invited to submit presentations in one of two categories:

(a) Full Papers

Authors should submit papers describing significant, original and
unpublished work.  Such papers are expected to be approximately 10-20
pages in length but this guideline is not strict. These papers will be
fully refereed by the programme committee and the accepted ones will
appear in a conference proceedings.

As in previous years, a selection of the papers will appear in a post
conference volume published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer
Science series.  The second round of refereeing for this volume will
take place shortly after the conference.

(b) Abstracts

Abstracts of up to 1000 words in length (3-4 pages) can be submitted by
those who wish to give a talk but do not want to write an academic paper.
Abstracts will be fully refereed. The accepted ones will appear in the
conference proceedings. The actual abstracts will not go
forward to the second round of refereeing for the post-conference volume.
However, authors of accepted abstracts will have the opportunity to write
a paper (based on their abstract) and submit it for the selected papers
volume at a later date (shortly after the conference).

Submission Process:

All submissions should be done through our online system available at
http://mat.gsia.cmu.edu/PATAT04 (available September 1, 2003).  Authors
who cannot utilize the online system should contact one of the co-chairs
of the Programme Committee for instructions.


Deadlines:

   Paper/abstract submissions           January 26th 2004
   Notification                         April 30th 2004 (at the latest)

About the Venue:

Pittsburgh has long shed its reputation as a town of soot and smog.  Today,
it is a vibrant city with a new wave of high-tech and service industries and
architectural masterpieces.  Intimate restaurants and high-energy clubs
make Pittsburgh one of the "most livable" cities in the country.  Pittsburgh
boasts abundent shopping at great prices, world-class museums, symphony,
ballet, opera, and a multitude of attractions.

The conference will be held in one of Pittsburgh's most active areas.
Lying just south of downtown, Station Square incorporates shopping, bars,
restaurants, and clubs.  Downtown is a short walk away across the river.
Frequent river boats offer a unique view of Pittsburgh, and can even be
used to get to Pittsburgh's sports venues.  The conference hotel, the
Sheraton Station Square, is at the heart of this area, and offers both
affordable rates and outstanding conference facilities.

Pittsurgh International Airport was ranked number one in the United States
and number three in the world by Conde Nast Traveler and is a short 20
minute cab ride from Station Square.

On the Saturday after the conference, we will organize outings to the
beautiful Pennsylvania countryside.  One group will head off to some of
the best white-water rafting in the eastern seaboard.  The Youghiogheny
offers challenges to experienced rafters while not overwhelming the
novice.  A second group will head out to tour one of architect Frank
Lloyd Wright's masterpieces "Fallingwater", a home through which a
stream literally runs.  The two groups will meet up for final
conversation and dinner.
