Submissions can either be (short) extended abstracts or (full) papers whose length should not exceed 9 and 15 pages, respectively. Submissions must be formatted in the Springer LNCS style (excluding well-marked appendices not intended for publication). Referees are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers should be intelligible without them. Short papers may describe work-in-progress or tool demonstrations.

Both short and full papers can be accepted for presentation at the symposium and will then appear in the LOPSTR 2010 pre-proceedings. Full papers can also be immediately accepted for publication in the formal proceedings, published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. In addition, after the symposium, the programme committee will select further short or full papers presented in LOPSTR 2010 to be considered for formal publication. These authors will be invited to revise and/or extend their submissions in the light of the feedback solicited at the symposium. Then after another round of reviewing, these revised papers can also be published in the formal post-proceedings.

Papers should be submitted to the submission Web page for LOPSTR 2010. They should be in PDF format and interpretable by Acrobat Reader.
