(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
Please send your submission as an email attachment to PRDC1999@cs.ust.hk.
