Guidelines for authors for preparing manuscripts

There will be two types of Proceedings: the printed book of Proceedings containing only short papers (maximum length is 4 pages) and the full-length keynote papers, and the CD-Proceedings containing all full-length papers. Both Proceedings will be handed out to the participants upon arrival to the Symposium. For the CD-Proceedings, the recommended length of contributing papers is 12 pages and for keynote lectures 18 pages. For the CD Proceedings the authors are encouraged to provide colour images.

The authors of accepted contributions are invited to submit both the short papers and the full-length papers (deadline May 31, 2009) in PostScript or (preferably) PDF format to The cover letter should include the name, address, phone, fax, and email of the corresponding author. Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the Instructions to Authors (manuscript-instructions-thmt-09.pdf).

In the case of larger files (more than 10 Mbytes), please send a short notice by e-mail in advance. If you use LaTeX, you may submit your paper by e-mail as an ASCII LaTeX file; in that case you should submit the figures separately.

If you intend to use LaTeX as the word processor, please download the zip file that has all the necessary styles and instructions. If you do not use the LaTeX typesetting program, you can use these instructions as general guidelines for your own word processor, as far as layout and font size is concerned or you can download the appropriate word-formatted template.

Each manuscript must be accompanied by a Copyright statement (copyright doc), which should be submitted together with the manuscript.
