The DfA2009 proceedings will be entirely Web based and consist of two parts:
A) In the Program the present links to the abstracts will be replaced with links to the actual presentations.
TO AUTHORS: Please provide ESO (either at the workshop [preferred] or by e-mail to DfA2009@eso.org) with the .ppt file of your talk. If animations are not important, .pdf will be advantageous because this format is normally better supported by Web browsers, etc. If animations are important, send .ppt, .pdf, and separate files (.avi, .flv, .qt, .mpg, or .mov) with the animations. For posters, .pdf is the only option. There is no a priori limit on the file size. But ESO reserves the right to request reductions.
B) In addition, ESO will add links from the Program to conventional write-ups of the talks and posters as they would appear in printed proceedings.
TO AUTHORS: Please send write-ups in .pdf format of your talks and posters to firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov. 30, 2009. The choice of the layout is free provided it is consistent with general conventions. There is no a priori limit on the file size. But ESO reserves the right to request reductions.
ESO will post files as submitted and not attempt to fix any potential or actual problems (e.g., with colors or fonts).
For all documents submitted for inclusion in the DfA2009 Web pages, active links will be supported. The correctness of any such links will be the responsibility of the authors. Neither will ESO fix links that get broken at a later time.
TO AUTHORS: In your submitted documents, please be aware of any possible copyrights or intellectual property of third parties.
ESO will endeavor to maintain these Web-based proceedings at least through 2014, by which time the proceedings of the next workshop of the series should have appeared.
