We accept submissions in PostScript and PDF. The preferred format is PDF. Each upload will replace a previous version of your submission of the same format. You may upload both a (gzipped) PostScript version and a PDF version of your paper.

All submissions will be subject to academic peer review by the AIME 05 Programme Committee under the chairpersonship of the AIME 05 Programme Committee Chair. Papers will be subject to blind peer review; reviewers will not be aware of the identities or affiliations of the authors. The AIME 05 Programme Committee Chair has final authority over the review process and all decisions relating to acceptance of papers. Review criteria include originality of ideas, technical soundness, significance of results, and quality of presentation. Notification of acceptance or rejection of submitted papers will be mailed to the corresponding author by April 6, 2005.
AIME 05 will operate an anonymous reviewing process. Reviewers for AIME 05 will be blind to the identities of the authors and their institutions. To allow for blind reviewing replace the authors line in your submission by the unique tracking number assigned by the submission of the summary form (or leave it empty in case you are not able to use the web-based summary submission form).
Please avoid identifying self-references. When referring to one's own work, use the third person rather than the first person. For example, replace phrases like "We have shown in [n]" by "In [n] it has been shown ...". Try to avoid including any information in the body of the paper or references that would identify the authors or their institutions. Such information can be added to the final camera-ready version for publication.
Policy on Multiple Submissions
AIME will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Authors are also expected not to submit their papers elsewhere during AIME's review period. These restrictions apply only to journals and conferences, not to workshops and similar specialized presentations with a limited audience and without archival proceedings.
Please send inquiries about paper submissions
