Online Submission of the Draft Paper

To submit your paper please visit the online conference system for DMIN'07 hosted by conference master. Please submit papers as soon as possible to ensure early feedback.

Review Process

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two researchers in the topical area. To reflect upon feedback from last year we will extend the constructive feedback given within the review. Please consult the pages for the Review Process for additional information.

We particularly encourage submissions of industrial applications and case studies from practitioners. To reflect the requirements of an application or project centric case study presentation, these will be subject to different review criteria. In particular, they will not be evaluated using predominantly theoretical research criteria of originality etc., but will take general interest and presentation stronger into consideration. The camera-ready papers will be reviewed by one person.

Final Papers - Registration and Submission

The camera-ready papers must be submitted twice:

1. Upload to WORLDCOMP
ADDITIONAL submission via email to

To register for DMIN'07 please visit the registration website of the WORLDCOMP Multiconference, of which DMIN'07 is a part of. You find it at

In  registering and uploading your camera-ready paper, please use the assigned paper number from your acceptance email "DMI54xx" or "DMI55xx", respectively, not the shorter number used in previous correspondence.

For example:

  • paper number "#3" --> use number "DMI5403" for your WORLDOMP submission (not DMI3 nor DMI03 nor DMI543 nor DMI553)
  • paper number "#11" --> use number "DMI5411" for your WORLDOMP submission
  • paper number "#5414" --> use number "DMI5414" for your WORLDOMP submission

Also, please submit your paper within the correct paper category! Although DMIN paper categories may differentiate between Application and Research papers for creation of coherent sessions, WORLDCOMP submission does not differentiate this. Simply submit your paper as indicated in the notification of acceptance. We will later allocate you to research or practitioner sessions!

Please note that all accepted papers are re-reviewed with regard to the reviewers’ comments on your first submission and to verify compliance with DMIN'07 typing/formatting instructions. Therefore, it is mandatory to send your camera-ready paper (pdf) to as well.
Do NOT upload your paper to the DMIN’07 conference management system used for submission of your draft paper for the first review process.
