Sometimes it is better to save the template first and then open it with the desired editor programme.

Remarks on contributed papers

The largest part of our Workshop programme is the series of contributions on the current research or applications of younger participants followed by discussion. We have 15 - 20 minutes for each presentation and additional time for discussion. The author of a contributed paper will present the highlights of the topic, so that everyone will understand the main features and be able to follow or participate in the subsequent discussion. The presentation will normally summarise the aim of the research, the methodology used and some of the results obtained. It will sometimes point out some open questions that are suitable for discussion.
Be sure that your presentation is clearly visible to everyone in the audience. Use large letters and a large line separation. The point size should be 16-18, and the number of lines per transparency should be at most 15.

Remarks on discussions

We shall invite one or two participants to be discussant(s) on each topic.
