Proceedings of the Workshop will include paper versions of both oral presentations and posters - on equal footing. Elements of panel discussions may be also included. Please peruse Proceedings of the 1998 FTM, published by Wiley [ISBN 0-471-32183-4] and Proceedings of the 2001 FTM, published by Wiley [ISBN 0-471-21247-4]. Our publication is intended as a collective treatise on the Future Trends in Microelectronics rather than merely conference proceedings.
The publication has been again agreed upon with Wiley Interscience. We shall edit all manuscripts to ensure identical format. Therefore, the authors are asked to produce as close a version to the camera-ready as possible, but the ultimate camera-ready manuscript will be produced by Editors in collaboration with Wiley publishers. There will be two types of contribution, the "long" and the "short" (no "importance" value is associated with the two categories, merely a decision between the author and the editor). The long article should be about 10-12 pages and the short should be about 6-8 pages. At the meeting the prospective authors have received a Wiley copyright agreement to sign. Those who misplaced the agreement (or lost it to the cochons sauvages that roam Corsica) can download the agreement here.
The deadline of August 31 is a serious matter. In our experience, there is at least 50% probability that any particular article needs re-wording and/or additional input from the author. We shall strive for delivering the manuscript to Wiley by the end of October which will then give us a chance for 2003 publication date. The only thing that may put a monkey wrench in these plans is tardiness of some authors which this particular admonition aims at eliminating! Please be prompt!
will be subjected to minimal editing and should conform as closely as
possible to the sample.
Further updates will appear here as the book develops. Stay tuned!
