The conference proceedings will be edited by W. Brandner and M. Kasper and will be published in the Springer-Verlag series "ESO Astrophysics Symposia".

If you retrieve these files via a Web browser, please note that you need to use the browser's "Save As..." facility.
If you are not using a Web browser to obtain the files, please do the following:
ftp ftp.eso.org Name: anonymous Password: your e-mail address cd /pub/esoproceedings/latex2e binary prompt mget * quit
The files 1readme.PDF (pdf format) and 1readme.doc (MS Word format) contain detailed instructions for authors.
The file author.tex contains a sample contribution, which can be used as a template for your own text. The files author.dvi and 2demo.ps are the .dvi and .ps files generated by running LaTeX and dvips on author.tex, and the file figure.eps is a sample figure.
Figures must be provided as PostScript files and should be incorporated in your contribution using the standard Latex2e "graphicx" package as demonstrated in the demo file author.tex.
Please use the following naming convention for your files: The Latex file of your text should be called myname.tex, where "myname" (all in lower-case) is the family name of the first author. Any figures should be named "mynameF1.ps" (or .eps), "mynameF2a.ps" etc, for figure 1, figure 2a, etc.
The page limits are:
|Invited talks:||up to 10 pages|
|Contributed talks:||up to 6 pages|
|Poster papers:||up to 3 pages|
Please try to observe these limits. It is anticipated that some editorial overview will be exercised and authors may be requested to make changes to their papers.
Due to the high cost of printing colour plates, only a very limited number of colour illustrations will be accepted, and only if there is a strong scientific justification.
Please submit the LaTeX source file of your contribution, and PostScript files of any figures, via ftp as follows:
Anonymous ftp to:
login in as anonymous and change to directory:
and "put" all your files in this directory using the naming convention explained above. Finally, let us know that the files are there, by sending a short message to Pamela Bristow (firstname.lastname@example.org).
