The meeting will consist of invited and contributed oral presentations, poster session, and a summary session.

It is expected that invited talks, will be 30 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion and session talks will be ~20 minutes with ~3 minutes for discussion. Poster sessions shall be used for longer discussions. An overhead projector for transparencies and an electronic projector with a computer capable of reading CD's and memory sticks will be available (Power Point or pdf recommended).

The official language of the meeting is English (no interpretation will be provided). It is expected that the meeting will start at 09:00 on 3 October 2005 and end by 16:00 on 6 October 2005. A short summary of the meeting, including recommendations, will be presented and approved during the Summary session (last session).

The abstracts will be selected and classified by the International Program Committee into oral and poster presentations.

A number of high quality papers will be selected by the International Advisory and Programme Committees for submission to NF to appear in a special publication.


Poster session will be organized on the 6th of October. The space will be provided to put your poster or a copy of your oral presentation (in the second case, please bring a hard copy of your presentation). The aim of the Poster session is have more time to discuss presented results and to ask questions as the Programme is very tight and the number of questions after talks will be restricted.
