- Posters: Papers may be submitted on any of the listed major topics;presentation of
papers in a poster format is highly encouraged at ECTC.
You are invited to submit a 750-word abstract that describes the
scope,content,and key points of your proposed paper via the
ECTC website at www.ectc.net. Please check the website for
details on how to submit abstracts electronically. For additional
information regarding abstract and paper submissions,please contact
Abstracts must be received by October 15, 2008. Your
submission must include the mailing address,business telephone
number,facsimile number and email address of the presenting
author and affiliations of all authors. Please indicate two program
subcommittees in order of preference that should evaluate your
paper for acceptance. Authors will be notified of paper acceptance
with instructions for publication by December 15,2008. At the
discretion of the program committee,abstracts submitted may be
considered for poster sessions.
Manuscripts are due in final form for publication in the Conference
Proceedings by February 25,2009. The work submitted should
be original,not previously published,and avoid inclusion of
commercial content. In addition to a printed copy conforming
to the ECTC format,a computer file for the CD-ROM is needed in
the preferred MSWord format.
