Proceedings of the Symposium

Here is the beginning of the book: Proceedings Symposium

The language of the article can be either English (preferred) or German and a short abstract of 1000 characters in the other language (I can help with translations into German).
The deadline for submitting an article is February 2008; but you can tell me, if you need more time. I would like to publish the book this year and I have mainly time for preparing the book during the semester holidays (February and March, then also July and August).
Here are some more details: about 15 to 20 standard pages (60 characters per line times 30 lines = 1800 characters/page) and about 3 to 5 figures (I really would like to have at least one figure for each article). You can also ask me if you want to write more or less.

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 not included in the Word-File.
Images should have printing resolution of about 300dpi.
I need a caption and a source of the 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.
