8th International Summer School/Conference
LET'S FACE CHAOS THROUGH NONLINEAR DYNAMICS
Center for Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics
CAMTP, University of Maribor, Slovenia
26 June - 10 July 2011
THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNICATIONS
If you already work in the field, you might have the opportunity to present your
work and your results as a communication, namely either as a poster
or as a short report. Each participant can present either up to two posters,
or one poster and one short report, or just one poster, or just one short report,
or no communication at all. A poster can have typical dimensions of 100 cm x 150
cm. The display/exhibition of the posters will last for the entire period of the
School/Conference, that is two weeks, and there will be two halls (Dvorana Antona
Trstenjaka and Dvorana Borisa Podrecce) devoted to the poster exhibition in the
Main University Building, just next to the main lecture hall (Velika dvorana).
There (in the Halls Anton Trstenjak and Boris Podrecca) we shall serve tea and coffee
in the breaks so that the interactions and discussions around the posters will be
extremely intense, effective and long-lasting. Therefore the presentation of posters
is strongly encouraged and recommended.
A short report (seminar) can be maximally 20 minutes long. Both types of contributions
are subject to the refereeing procedure and the acceptance by the Organizing Committee.
The category of communication, the title and the abstract, including some key references,
should be stated in the electronic Application form, about roughly half A4 page
per communication. If you want to increase the visibility of your scientific communications
and their assessment then we advise you to include your C.V. and the list of publications
in your submission of the Application form. The Application form is available in
plain ascii format at the conference home page http://www.uni-mb.si/chaos/2011/.
This must be filled in and mailed to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for this type of application is Friday 20 May 2011.
The selection will be quite strong and only a limited number of communications will
be accepted (about 20 short reports, and about 40-60 posters). Again, it should
be emphasized that the posters will be displayed during the full period of the School/Conference
(two weeks), which is a very important advantage in favour of the authors, allowing
them a thorough presentation and discussion with the interested persons, especially
during the coffee breaks, in the mornings and in the evenings. Therefore there will
be no special poster session (time interval).
Subject to the willingness of our sponsors we shall make arrangements to
award a few of the most outstanding works. The awards will be worth about up to
THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE SCHOOL/CONFERENCE
The accepted (selected) and presented communications of the participants will be
published together with the lectures of the invited lecturers and speakers in the
Proceedings of the School/Conference. The organizing committee plans again, like
in 1999/2000, 2002/2003, 2005/2006 and 2008 to publish the Proceedings. This time
in a special volume of the American Institute of Physics Conference Proceedings,
like in 2008. The deadline for submission of the articles (typescripts) will be
30 September 2011, and the publication date will be before the end of the year 2011.
The Proceedings will have about 600 pages in total, and should be printed and distributed
worldwide. The interested persons can have a look at the Proceedings of the 4th
and 5th School/Conference published in special volumes of the Progress in Theoretical
Physics Supplements (Kyoto) Vol. 139, 2000, Editors M. Robnik, Y. Aizawa, H. Hasegawa
and Y. Kuramoto, and Vol. 150, 2003 Editors M. Robnik, Y. Aizawa, and Y.
Kuramoto, to see the typical structure and contents of our Proceedings.
The Proceedings of the 6th School/Conference were published in 4 issues of the journal
Nonlinear Phenomena in Complex Systems, Vol. 9, No. 2-3, 2006, Vol. 10,
No. 1-2, 2007. The Proceedings of the 7th School & Conference are AIP Conference
Proceeding, Vol. 1076: Proceedings of "Let's Face Chaos Through Nonlinear
Dynamics" 7th International Summer School and Conference, Eds. M. Robnik and V.G.
Romanovski. The publications there have a status of a regular refereed article.
