Submissions should be full papers of about 4000-6000 words. The maximum
submission length is 14 single-spaced A4 pages, including figures, tables,
and references, using an 11pt font. Submitted papers should be in PDF
format. The committee will not review papers that exceed the length limit,
or papers in other formats such as Word or HTML. Extended Abstracts are
acceptable, if they provide sufficient detail.
Submissions are due on September 2, 2002.
The program committee and external readers will judge papers on technical
merit, significance, relevance, and presentation. A good paper will
demonstrate that the authors:
Are attacking a significant problem,
have devised an interesting, compelling solution,
have demonstrated the practicality and benefits of the solution,
have drawn appropriate conclusions,
have clearly described what they have done, and
have clearly articulated the advances beyond previous work.
Please read the detailed USENIX author guidelines for more information.
Accepted papers may be shepherded through an editorial review process by a
member of the program committee.
The NordU conference, like most conferences and journals, does not allow
submissions that are substantially similar to works that are previously
published or are under review for publication elsewhere. Papers
accompanied by non-disclosure agreement forms will not be read or
Best Paper Awards
Awards will be given for the best paper.

program committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
