NEWS: These instructions are now final. Please send your final paper following these instructions by March 14 to Gary Leavens: leavens@eecs.ucf.edu. Please send both PDF and your source files, so that minor fixes can be made more quickly.

Papers in the FOAL proceedings will be available as part of the ACM Digital Library. We appreciate your extra effort involved in preparation and formatting of your final paper versions for the digital library.

## Formatting Details for Authors

Since papers are going into the ACM Digital Library, authors are requested to sign a copyright form and format papers carefully in ACM Conference format.

For the same reason, authors must include CR categories, general terms, and keywords in their document, as described in the ACM conference format.

For inclusion in the ACM Digital Library, lead authors also should to sign (on behalf of their coauthors) a copy of Part A of the ACM Transfer of Copyright Agreement. Please fax (or email a scan) to Prof. Gary T. Leavens at +1-407-823-5419. Gary will forward them to the AOSD staff who will forward them to the ACM staff.

The copyright form is required if authors wish to have their work included in the ACM Digital Library. The ACM copyright policy is quite liberal; for example, authors retain the right to post their papers to their homepages and to reuse any portion of the work, without fee, in their own future works. Also we have arranged to continue to make the FOAL Proceedings freely available from the FOAL website.

### Permission Block

Authors should format their papers with a permission block at the bottom left of the first page that reads as follows.

Permission to make digital or hard copies of all or part of this work for personal or classroom use is granted without fee provided that copies are not made or distributed for profit or commercial advantage and that copies bear this notice and the full citation on the first page. To copy otherwise, to republish, to post on servers or to redistribute to lists, requires prior specific permission and/or a fee.

#### LaTeX Meta Data

To include CR categories, general terms, and keywords with one of the two recommended styles, use something like the following (after \begin{document}), edited to suit your paper:

\category{D.2.11}{Software Engineering}{Software Architectures}[Languages]
\category{D.2.13}{Software Engineering}{Reusable Software}[Reuse models]
\category{D.2.10}{Software Engineering}{Design}[Representation]
\terms{Design, languages}
\keywords{Architecture, components, composition, reuse, modeling}


### No Page Numbers

The FOAL organizers will add page numbers to all papers after final submission. Please make sure your submitted paper does not include any page numbers.

### Embedding Fonts

Be sure that PDF files produced have all the fonts embedded and should use Type 1 fonts (scalable), not Type 3 (bit-mapped). You can check this in Adobe Acrobat by using the File menu, and looking at the Document Properties.

### Final Submission

Final versions of papers, meeting all of the above requirements must be submitted by 23:00 GMT, 14 March 2008, by email to Gary Leavens: leavens@eecs.ucf.edu. Please send both your source document(s) and the PDF output file, as that will allow faster correction of minor problems.
