Obtaining the LaTeX macros:
Contributions must be formatted with LaTeX using the
which are available from the ESO ftp host (ftp.eso.org) in the
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 unable to use the LaTeX2e macros because you are still using an older version of LaTeX, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a set of macros which are compatible with older LaTeX versions.
Preparing your contribution:
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.
If you include your own LATEX command definitions, please keep these
to an absolute minimum, and do not change the macros.
Figures should be provided as PostScript files and should if possible be incorporated in your contribution using a package such as the "graphicx" package used in the demo file author.tex.
The page limits are:
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 colour plates only a very limited number of colour illustrations will be accepted, and only if there is a strong scientific justification.
Note on Abstracts:
The LaTeX macros allow authors to provide an abstract. However, this abstract will not appear in your contribution which is published in the proceedings. Instead, it will be transmitted to the NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) for inclusion in their database of abstracts.
Submitting your contribution:
Please e-mail the LaTeX source file of your contribution, and PostScript
files of any figures, to
In addition, a paper copy of your contribution, including all figures and tables etc., should be sent to the address below.
