Submitted papers must be in English and must not substantially overlap work that has been published before, or that is simultaneously in submission to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Simultaneous submission, submission of previously published work, and plagiarism constitute dishonesty or fraud. DIMVA prohibits these practices and may take appropriate action against authors who have committed them.

Authors of accepted papers must ensure that their papers will be presented at the conference. Presentations must also be held in English. Details about the electronic submission procedure will be provided on the conference Web site by the end of December 2009.
