Paper Submission
Papers of up to 15 pages must be sent to iwp9paper at iwp9.org in PDF or PS format. Please do not forget to include the e-mail address of the contact author. Submissions will be acknowledged via e-mail (please allow for a small delay). Papers must be visually similar to Plan 9 papers that can be found at /sys/doc/9/ in order to compile a homogeneous proceedings book. See for example
this paper. These macros and this mkfile can be used to duplicate this look. Please keep this look and feel, use the same fonts and do not include page numbers.

For accepted papers, besides the PDF/PS file, it would be nice if authors could provide a LaTeX (or troff) source in order to facilitate the compilation of the proceedings book. This is not mandatory. Worst case, page numbers and a toc will be added by hand. The workshop proceedings will be published in electronic form. We are also considering the edition of a printed version with ISBN, to be distributed during the workshop.
