Thus, full papers can be accepted as short papers or poster papers only. Similarly, short papers can be accepted as poster papers only. In these cases, the authors will be allowed to maintain the original number of pages in the camera-ready version.

STEPS TO SUBMIT YOUR PAPER
Creating an EasyChair Account: (If you already have an EasyChair account from a previous conference, use your existing account for this conference, skip this step and start from Step 2). Go to the Easychair Abstract submission page, you should register first – just click at the “sign up for an account” link at the login page and fill in the form. The system will send you an e-mail with the instructions how to finish the registration.
Go to the EasyChair EMENA-TSSL'16 submission page
Enter your EasyChair username and password and log in
Click NEW SUBMISSION at the top of the page
By following the instructions fill in the form, and then submit NOTE: After submitting your paper successfully, you should receive an e-mail from EasyChair that you have successfully submitted your abstract by copy/paste.
Some mails servers at universities “filter out” the automatic e-mails send by the EasyChair system. In case you do not receive an e-mail from EasyChair (it may take some time), try to find it in “junk” e-mails. Sometimes this does not help and it is necessary to use another e-mail address. (According to our experience, gmail, yahoo, hotmail, outlook and etc. addresses work well.) In case you forgot your username or password for your EasyChair account, follow the link after the words “If you have problems to sign in” at the login page. Abstract Submitting Process via EasyChair
