Track on real applications

A track is organized on real applications of the methodologies dealt with by the IPMU 2006 conference. Industrial products and softwares developed by companies or research laboratories are concerned.
The contributors to this special track will not be required to submit a paper for publication in the proceedings. Any material related to the track will be gathered in a separate booklet. Oral presentations by the contributors will be included in the program of the conference. A regular registration allows participants to submit a communication in this track and no additional fee is required.
    The schedule is the following:
  • Submission of proposals (title, authors, one or two page abstract describing the real application) : February 12, 2006
  • Notification of acceptance/rejection: March 1, 2006
  • Camera-ready papers (2 to 4 pages) : March 31, 2006


A paper accepted in the poster session will be published in a separate booklet that will be given to all participants.
Thus, a paper accepted as a poster should be uploaded on the website. This camera ready paper should be no longuer than 4 pages length, and should respect the general guidelines and paper format given in this page.

During the conference, two poster sessions will be organized. During these sessions, each poster will be displayed on a specific board. The size of the poster should be set to paper size A1 (height: 84 cm x width: 59.4cm).

There will be no oral presentation of a poster paper but the author of the poster will stand near the poster during the poster session in order to answer questions from participants.

Special Sessions

A special session should be composed by at least 4 papers. All communications must present research advances and no state of the art.
The session organizer can take care of the reviewing process or can ask the communications to follow the standard reviewing process. He must inform the secretariat of his choice. In any case, all communications must be reviewed by at least two reviewers.
