|ABSTRACTS / PRESENTATION / PROCEEDINGS|
Abstracts | Presentations | Proceedings
Abstracts can be submitted either by filling in the web form or by sending an E-mail. For E-mail submission, the abstract (not exceeding one printed page) should be sent in LaTeX format. Only poster contributions can be accepted after April 15, 2002.
There will be oral and poster contributions in the Symposium. A limited number of main talks (duration 30 minutes) and the other oral presentations (duration 20 minutes) will be selected by the Advisory and Program Committee from contributions whose abstracts will be received not later than April 15. Notification of the selected oral or poster presentations will be communicated to the authors by the end of May.
|Main talks||30 min|
|Oral presentations||20 min|
Talks can be presented using the standard overhead projector or a data projector. In the latter case, please inform us which hardware and software you would need before the end of July. It is supposed that most of the presentations using data projector will be in the PowerPoint (version 2000 or older); standard diskette and CD-ROM drives will be available.
All oral presentations and posters will be published in the Symposium proceedings issued by the World Scientific. Contributions will not appear in the Proceedings if the author does not attend the Symposium.
The number of pages allowed for contributions in the Proceedings:
|Main talks||9 pages|
|Oral presentations||7 pages|
The manuscripts for the Conference Proceedings are to be prepared with the aid of Latex2e language using the appropriate style, available at the World Scientific web site. In order to access this style, please type http://www.wspc.com.sg and click consecutively "For Authors", "Style Files", "Proceedings Style Files" and then select Trim Size 9.00" x 6.00" to download the needed files. Alternatively you can download the compressed package of style files from our server in .zip or .tgz form.
Instructions for producing a Camera-Ready Manuscript using World Scientific Publishing Latex2e Proceedings Style Files:
Total there are five files in the package:
|procs-readme96_2e.txt||The preliminary guide|
|procs-f1.eps||The figure/image file|
|ws-procs9x6.cls||The class/style file that provides the higher level latex2e commands for the proceedings|
|ws-procs9x6.tex||The main text|
|ws-procs9x6.pdf||Sample pages of the above text|
The authors are pleased not to change the parameters in the ws-procs9x6.cls style file. If there is an abbreviation defined in the new definitions at the top of the file ws-procs9x6.tex that conflicts with one of your own macros, then delete the appropriate command and revert to longhand. Failing that, please consult your local texpert to check for other conflicting macros that may be unique to your computer system. Page numbers are included at the top of the page for your guidance. Do not worry about the final pagination of the volume which will be done after submitting the contribution. If you need any further assistance, please email to the local organizing committee.
The deadline for the receipt of manuscripts is September 6, 2002. To publish the Proceedings in time, the deadline must be strictly observed; no late papers will be accepted. All contributions are required in electronic form, i.e. as a LaTeX 2e source code.
The Proceedings will be issued before July 2003.
