Abstracts are to be submitted electronically, preferably by e-mail attachment, or secondarily, on a computer disk (either CD or floppy disk is acceptable).

Abstracts may be subject to re-formatting but only to minimal editing, so please send perfect, error-free copy files. Authors names should be in all caps, and the presenting author should be clearly indicated with an asterisk in front of their surname.
