The Allerton House is located 26 miles southwest of the Urbana-Champaign campus of the University of Illinois in a wooded area on the Sangamon River. It is part of the 1,500 acre Robert Allerton Park, a complex of natural and man-made beauty designated as a National natural landmark. Allerton Park has 20 miles of well-maintained trails and a living gallery of formal gardens, studded with sculptures collected from around the world.


Regular papers suitable for presentation in 20 minutes are solicited. Regular papers will be published in full (subject to a maximum length of eight 8.5” x 11” pages, in two column format) in the Conference Proceedings. Only papers that are actually presented at the conference and uploaded as final manuscripts can be included in the proceedings, which will be available after the conference on IEEE Xplore. For reviewing purposes of papers, a title and a five to ten page extended abstract, including references and sufficient detail to permit careful reviewing, are required.
