Note on copyright footer: The IEEE paper submission FAQ says ``A copyright footer must be applied to the paper prior to uploading manuscript to PDF eXpress."

All camera-ready submissions must be PDF documents that have been validated using IEEE's PDF eXpress Plus tool.

You can register for the workshop without registering for the main VL/HCC workshop. But please consider attending at least one day of the VL/HCC workshop. One of the main benefits of holding the Blocks and Beyond workshop with VL/HCC is cross-fertilization between the two communities.
Note: on the registration form, you will be asked to fill out two screens of information before the screen labeled Agenda, on which you will indicate that you are registering for the Blocks workshop.
