B.4 Short Communications and Posters

All Ordinary Members (see I.1 Membership) of the Congress will have the opportunity to present their mathematical work in the form of a Short Communication or a Poster -- provided that

Only one Short Communication or Poster (and thus only one abstract) is allowed for each member. Each Short Communication lasts 15 minutes including discussion. Short Communications are grouped into time slots of 45 minutes for three presentations. The rooms for Short Communications are equipped with a blackboard and an overhead projector. Each Poster session lasts 105 minutes; during that period the authors should stand by their posters and be available for questions and discussion. Authors presenting a Poster are advised to bring the material of the Poster with them when they come to the Congress since no facilities for preparing posters are available on site. The size of the individual poster panels is as follows: width 180 cm, height 120 cm.

The abstract for a Short Communication or a Poster must include the appropriate section number (see B.3 Invited Lectures) and 1991 MS classification number so that the Communications and Posters can be grouped in a coherent way for presentation. Abstracts may be submitted in English, French, Russian or German. Abstracts of accepted Posters and Short Communications which are properly prepared and received by the deadline will be reproduced and distributed to all Ordinary Members when they pick up their registration package. The Local Scientific Committee will notify authors of acceptance/rejection of their contribution.

Instructions on how to prepare an abstract are in Section D.3 Abstracts. Abstracts which do not conform to the stipulated rules will be returned to the author for resubmission. Late papers will not be accepted. However, it is possible to present them in ad-hoc sessions that will be organized and announced during the conference.
