About Talks and Posters
Besides a series of plenary talks by invited speakers
of approx. 50 min., there will be room for a very limited number
of short communications of about 20 min. A Poster Session will be organized
You can choose to register yourself for a poster
or a talk.
The selection criteria for talks will be the
following (in order of importance):
Posters: If you choose to present a poster,
the only criterion applied is whether the subject is relevant to the topics
of the Workshop.
Short Talks: As the place available for short
talks is very limited, we are obliged to proceed to a selection of applications
of speakers. It will take place soon after the August 20, 2004 deadline.
Those requesting to talk that we are unable to
accomodate will be offered the possibility to prepare a poster.
Results of the selection will be communicated to
the interested people by e-mail. Soon after, the definitive program will
be published on the Web page of the workshop. Details will be circulated
around the beginning of September, 2004.
relevance of the proposed talk to the main topics
of the Workshop;
younger speakers will be given an opportunity.
Inscription for a talk / poster
If you want to inscribe yourself for a short talk
or poster, please proceed as follows:
After the deadline August 20, 2004, the title
and abstract fields in the registration form will not be modifiable any
more. If you want to make changes to your title/abstract after this date,
please write an e-mail to email@example.com
. However, your new proposal must undergo re-examination by the scientific
Click on the "Talk" or "Poster" buttons on the registration
form. Clicking on the "Poster" button means that you choose to present
a poster, while the "Talk" button means that it may be a talk (if you are
among the selected) or a poster otherwise.
Fill in the related part of the form, i.e. give a
title and an abstract. If you clicked on the Talk or Poster buttons your
registration is not accepted without a title. It
is not compulsory to provide abstract immediately, but it is requested
before the August 20, 2004 deadline.
Any reference to published material is welcome at
the end of the abstract field.
You can change your mind and request a talk/poster
or modify your title/abstract at any time before the deadline by entering
again the form with the password you have chosen.
Proposals that do not contain a clear title and
abstract at the date of the deadline will not be considered.
If the title/abstract fields contain formulae, these
should be encoded in plain LaTeX (no macros, please). Avoid, however, any
preambles/macros/documentclass etc... These will be provided by us when
we shall prepare the micro-proceedings.
A collection of titles/abstracts of the presented talks/posters will be
published on the Web and also in a little booklet to be distributed to the
participants. So the higher the care you have in preparing your abstract,
possibly with refs. to your paper(s) on the subject, the better you are
advertising your work.
We plan to collect the slides of the talks to create a sort of Web Proceedings
of the Conference.
If somebody prepares transparencies for their talk in one of LyX, LaTeX,
FoilTeX, SliTeX, Postscript, Pdf or OpenOffice formats, we greatly
appreciate sending us a copy of the file(s) in order to distribute them
electronically after the Workshop. The transparencies should be sent as attachment
by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org,
with subject "Lecture notes: first_name family_name".
Those who prepare
their slides by handwriting will be asked after their talk to leave the transparencies
to local organizers of the conference for scanning.
Proceedings - At the time of writing the present notes, we have
not yet decided if there will be any proceedings of the Workshop. The very
limited budget at our disposal strongly discourages this possibility. We
shall keep our participants informed.
