the other for the industrial establishments. The research reports
should be submitted in the same way as the technical papers. A report
should maximum be of 4 pages.

    Tutorial Proposals:

    There will be a tutorial program for two days (17-18 December
2007). At most four three-hour tutorials will be offered. Proposals
