List of INTER Papers



The papers of the  meeting will be available for the participants of the meeting on this server.

As soon as the papers arrive they are available for downloading.

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

Here will be a zip file containing all papers

During our meeting we will have a session called “Notes.” It should be possible to present 8 to 10 notes within this session, so a time limit of 10 minutes is essential. It is intended that these notes will be included in the proceedings so that they should not exceed three pages in length. Please send your note (Email) at least two weeks before the meeting and they will also be available for download.
