Call for FastAbstracts

FastAbstracts (a two page published technical paper, lightly reviewed, with a short talk) is an idea that was first introduced in FTCS-28 by Prof. Jean Arlat and Dr. Ram Chillarege. It has grown in appeal far more than they ever anticipated; several conferences have adopted it. We are very pleased to follow their lead in organizing a fast abstracts session in PRDC 1999. The following are the submission details and acceptance procedures.
  • FastAbstract submissions are due on Oct. 1, 1999.
  • All submissions will be quickly reviewed and acceptances will be announced before Oct. 15, 1999.
  • Only electronic submissions in the form of a postscript file produced in two column format, and filling a maximum of two pages are accepted.
  • All accepted abstracts must be presented at the symposium.You are allowed 10 minutes for your talk including questions and answers.
  • If your FastAbstract is accepted, you will need to fill out a copyright transfer form, and quickly handle any recommended changes.
  • Several examples of fast abstracts from the past FTCS and ISSRE are archived at http://www.chillarege.com/fastabstract.html
  • Please send your submission as an email attachment to PRDC1999@cs.ust.hk.
