Abstracts should not be anonymized: include all information (title, authors' names and affiliations, text, and citations). Abstracts should follow USENIX's format and guidelines: typeset in two-column format in 10-point Times Roman type on 12-point leading (single-spaced), with the text block being no more than 7" wide by 9" deep. Submissions violating these guidelines will be rejected without review.
