Scientific programme

The oral presentations are scheduled between 5 (Monday) and 9 (Friday) July 2010. The official language of the Conference is English.

The symposium programme includes:
  1. plenary and semi-plenary lectures
  2. mini-courses
  3. invited sessions
  4. contributed talks

The plenary / semi-plenary lectures will be included in the programme upon invitation.

Invited sessions and mini-courses will be solicited, based on proposals open to any would-be attendee. 

Submission of proposals for invited sessions
: Each invited session consists of 4 papers, dealing with several issues of a unified theme. The proposals should contain a summary statement describing the relevance and importance of the session, accompanied by a maximum 2-page long extended abstract of each paper in pdf-file. Each paper in a proposed invited session will be first individually reviewed, and then the invited session will be evaluated as a whole. The International Programme Committee reserves the right to accommodate the accepted papers from rejected invited sessions into the regular programme.

Submission of proposals for mini-courses:  In order to enhance the tutorial value of the conference, we ask for proposals for mini-courses in areas of current interest, in which well-established textbooks or lecture notes are not available.  A mini-course consists of 2 blocks, each block consisting of 4 talks, prepared and presented in a unified and coherent manner by a team of at most four people. A mini-course proposal would also require a 2-4 page long extended abstract providing the structure of the whole mini-course, with no requirement of abstracts for the individual talks.

Submission of contributed papers:
submit a maximum 2-page long extended abstract in pdf-file.

Following the standards set up in previous MTNS Symposiums, we ask all authors to enhance the tutorial values of the talks.

Invited session proposals:    22 December, 2009
Extended abstracts:    4 January , 2010
Notification of authors: 1 March , 2010
Full papers:  15 May, 2010
