List of INTER Papers, Tacoma, WA, USA



The papers of the  meeting will be available for the participants of the meeting on this server. They are produced in a PDF (Portable Document Format) Format which can be read e.g. by ACROBAT Reader. These files can be downloaded by clicking on the title. The Adobe Acrobat Reader must be installed on your system to be able to view or print a PDF document. The Acrobat Reader may already be part of your Web browser. If not, it is available for downloading at no cost from Adobe at http://www.adobe.com/downloads/ Please make sure that you have the latest version of the Adobe Acrobat Reader.


Please send me a short message (E-Mail) if you have problems in reading and printing the papers.

The following list contains the papers that are intended to be presented at the meeting. As soon as the papers arrive they are available for downloading.


During our meeting we will have a 2 hours session called “Notes”. Within this session a presentation of 8 to 10 “Notes” should be possible so a time limit of 10 minutes is strictly required. It is intended to include these notes in the proceedings so they should not exceed three pages (see: guidelines for the authors)


Participants of the meeting receive the access code for downloading the papers after registration
