Submission of Full Papers

Hard Copy (Printed Version)
The Full Paper should be preceded by the information Summary submitted previously. The Full Text should follow the same spacing and margins as described for the summary on the previous page. The Full Text should not exceed 3,000words, including tables, figures and graphs. Each table, figure or graph is considered as being equivalent to the number of words, which could have been typed in an equivalent space. An invited paper should not exceed 9,000 words, including tables, figures and graphs.

A participant may present up to two papers as Sole Author or Senior Author. The name of the author could, however, appear as a contributor to other papers.

Figures and graphs must be in black ink, on white or faint blue graph paper or supplied as black and white photographs. Figures and graphs should be in the precise position in the text of the paper.

(The name and reference of the author and the subject should be indicated on the reverse side of figures, graphs or photographs.)

Colour photographs and slides will not appear in the Proceedings but can be used in presentation.

Authors should follow the format in "Guidelines to Contributors of Papers" (herewith).

Electronic Copy (On diskette)
To facilitate the production of the proceedings on CD ROM, authors are hereby requested to submit their presentations on diskettes.

The diskettes label should clearly identify the name of the author and the title of the paper. To ensure uniformity in format use 'Word for Windows', letter size 12 and font Times New Roman. In the case of figures and tables use 'Word' or 'Excel'.

The text and figures of the electronic copy should be identical to the hard copy.

Oral Presentation
The authors should therefore prepare in writing the text of their speech, selecting the main points of their paper and providing an explanation for tables, slides, etc. They should bring 8 copies of this speech to the Conference in order to facilitate interpretation services. The preparation of this Oral Presentation is essential to the success of the Conference. (Speakers: maximum 1,000 words; Invited Speakers: maximum 3,000 words.)

In order to ensure a hitch-free proceeding, the speakers and invited speakers will not exceed the 10 and 30 minutes allocated to them respectively.

Deadline for Submission

A copy of the complete typescript of full papers and diskette should reach each of the following addresses at the latest by 31 May 2003:

In addition to the oral sessions some of the papers may be presented in poster format (drawings, leaflets, samples, etc.). These poster sessions will correspond as closely as possible to the relevant Conference sessions.
