Please prepare your manuscript for the proceedings of the symposium in Microsoft Word format.

If you are not a user of Word, Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) is also acceptable.

If you cannot prepare either file format, please contact us immediately.

All manuscripts should be supplied by e-mail to or on a Windows formatted diskette or CD-ROM by mail.

  1. The maximum number of characters is 10,000 (exclusive space characters). Tables, figures, and photographs are acceptable, their maximum number is 5.
  2. Each manuscript should be preceded by a title section showing the exact title and the name(s) of the author(s) including the affiliations and e-mail address. The text should be separated into two, three, or more numbered major sections (which can include several subsections).
    Example of typical appropriate major section headings are Introduction, Method, Results, Discussion and Conclusions. Any necessary acknowledgements of significant personal or financial contributions or support should appear at the end.
  3. The text should be in 11pt Times New roman or its equivalent for the title, section heads and the body of the text, and 10pt for the authors’ names and addresses. Please use capitals for the title and authors, bold face for title and headings, and italics for the subheadings. The abstract, footnotes, figure and table captions should be in 9pt.
  4. Tables, figures and photographs should be monochrome, at least 300dpi and saved in a separate pdf-file. Please do not include them in the file that you submit electronically but clearly indicate in the text which table, figure or photograph should be placed where and add file name, caption, and source.
  5. By submitting tables, figures, and photographs, the author confirms that he/she is in possession of all copyrights connected therewith and is thus entitled to pass them on to a third party for publication.
