IMPORTANT DATES: ---------------------------- Paper submission deadline: July 20, 2012 Author notification: Sep. 5, 2012 Camera-ready version due: Sep. 20, 2012 Conference: Dec 14-16, 2012 ABOUT BEIJING: ---------------------------- Beijing is China's political, cultural, science and education centre as well as a key transportation hub with direct flights to most major cities in the world. Beijing has served as the capital of the country for more than 800 years. The city has many places of historic interest and scenic beauty. Beijing became the focus of world attention in 2008 when it hosted the Olympics. The games were a symbol of both China's progress and China's tradition with high-class and eye-catching facilities and spectacular ceremonies. People from all around the world were welcomed to travel to Beijing under the slogan "One World, One Dream".
