  Here are important notes for authors  ............


Prospective participants are encouraged to submit abstracts of their papers for consideration (see on-line registration and abstract submission). Papers will be presented in oral and poster sessions (see below "Presentation modes").

Abstracts should be in English and include:

  • full title of the paper
  • full names of all the authors
  • affiliations and addresses of all the authors
  • e-mail address of the corresponding author

Abstracts should not exceed three pages (extended abstracts will be appreciated).

Please submit your abstract as a text file in the Latex format (please use the following template) and as a ps/pdf file (see template.ps, template.pdf). Please use the first author's name as a filename.

Deadline for abstract submission: May 15, 2005 


The PDS'05 proceedings will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids. The papers will be refereed by two referees chosen by the conference Scientific Commettee, and then the final versions of works will be forwarded to ultimate evaluation by a referee chosen by the Editorial Board of Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids.

Instructions for the authors writing in Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids are available here (doc format, pdf format).

Manuscripts should be submitted during the conference or e-mailed (preferably in pdf or ps format) to office@pds05.gda.pl.

Although the paper submission dead-line is September 18, we would like to invite you to earlier submission. This would accelerate much the editorial works.

Deadline for article submission: September 18, 2005 

Presentation modes


Presentation with a computer and a video projector is recommended. All participants are requested to deliver their data files to a member of the LOC Staff for saving the files into the official computer as soon as they arrive but not later than the day before their presentation. The Microsoft PowerPoint, PDF and HTML formats are the only formats allowed for presentations. After loading the digital file into the official computer, participants are advised to check for any irregularities in the fonts and appearance of the presentation and make changes if necessary. It is an author's responsibility to ensure that the presentation will be displayed correctly, thus ensuring smooth presentation. If a participant happens to arrive too late to ensure that his presentation is displayed correctly, he or she should contact the area chair to make special arrangements for uploading the presentation into the appropriate conference computer.

Overhead projectors may also be used.


The maximum area available for poster presentations is 1.0 m wide x 1.4 m high. Poster panels will be marked with numbers correlated with the Abstract Booknumbers. The title, authors' names and affiliation(s) should appear at the top of the poster. All posters should be in English. Posters will be attached to display panels by double-sided tape provided by the Organizers.


Participants from some countries will need a visa when entering Poland. Please find out early at your local Polish Embassy or Consulate the conditions for obtaining the visa.
