The workshop proceedings will be published by the American Institute of Physics through their AIP conference proceedings service. The published hard bound copy will be 8.5"x11" in size with contributed papers in black and white single-column format. We request that all workshop speakers submit a contributed paper to the proceedings. Also we invite participants with posters to submit papers to the proceedings.

Please note the following:
- The papers are printed in Black and white (greyscale), we suggest to convert colour photos and figures to black and white to ensure proper greyscale rendering.
- Suggested paper length is 6-10 single column 8.5"x11" pages (maximum 10) for talk contributions, and 4-6 pages for poster contributions. To give an idea of length, the style format uses 10pt font and 1" margins.
- Please use the supplied style files to ensure consistency of style (titles, headers, references and notes etc.)
- Please complete the transfer of copyright form.
- Be sure to submit a permission form for the inclusion of any published material (even if the work is your own). Please consult the permission section of the instruction booklet above. Do this as early as possible, as this is the source of most delays.

We want to have the proceedings submitted to the publisher in a timely way to ensure publication before the summer. Thus we ask that papers be submitted by the 7th March 2005. Please submit contributions to Mark Chen ( and Richard Ford (
