Advice to Speakers - Information for your Lecture

    Please note that you will each have a total of about 25 minutes.
    We recommend that you allot maximum 20 minutes for your presentation and 5 minutes for discussion.

    There will be a digital projector (Beamer) and laptop computer with WinXP and PowerPoint in the lecture room. If you need other equipment (like a 35mm slide projector or an overhead projector or anything else), please let us know as soon as possible.

    Speaker services will be available at registration. Please copy your PowerPoint presentation to a CD ROM or USB memory stick, and bring this with you to Registration. Someone will be available to copy your talk to our computer so that you will be ready-to-go at your session.

    Please don't hesitate to contact me.


Proceedings of the Symposium

Proceedings of the Symposium will be published.

The deadline for submitting an article (a printable version of your paper including images) for the proceedings of the symposium is February 1, 2011.

The language of the article should be English.
Here are some more details: you can write about 15 standard pages (60 characters per line times 30 lines = 1800 characters/page) and about 3 to 6 figures (I really would like to have at least one figure for each article). Also colour images will be possible. You can also ask me if you want to write more or less pages.

You can send a LaTeX file or a WinWord file (send it as RTF and please use practically no formatting and please use no hyphenation).
The images must be sent in separate files (tiff, pdf, png, jpg) and should not be included in the Word-File.
Images should have printing resolution of 300 dpi.
I need a caption and a source for each image.

Please use short references in the footnotes like ,,Mayer 1999, p. 34-56.'' and give the detailed reference in the bibliography at the end.
I give an example for the bibliography:
LastName, firstName: Title of the book. City: Publisher Year. (Book)
LastName, firstName: Title of the article. In: Journal Vol (Year), p. from - to. (article in a journal).

I would very much appreciate if everyone would contribute to the book.
