All submissions must be written in English and formatted according to the IEEE formatting guidelines (http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting) for conference papers. All papers and fast abstracts must be submitted through the web-based submission system, in PDF format. Papers should be submitted to: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hase2012. Submissions that exceed the page limits specified (eight for research papers and two for fast abstracts, respectively), are outside the scope of the symposium, or do not follow the formatting guidelines and be rejected without review. At least one author of each accepted research paper or fast abstract is required to pay the full registration fee to the conference. Each accepted paper or fast abstract must be presented in person by the author or one of the authors. All accepted papers and fast abstracts will be published in the electronic proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society, indexed through INSPEC and EI Index, and automatically included in the IEEE digital library. Arrangements are being made to publish extended versions of the best research papers in reputable journals.
