The proceedings of the Workshop will be published by ESA's Publications Division, based at ESTEC in The Netherlands, approximately twelve weeks after the Workshop. To contain production costs and to ensure a quick turn around, text and all artwork and photos will normally be printed in black and white. If this poses a problem, please contact the Workshop Editor, whose address is given below.
To allow for quick publication and a homogeneous presentation of the hard copy printed version please prepare your paper as indicated below.
At the top of the first page, to be centred:
Start the text (in the left column) with an abstract (approximately 150 words) highlighting the main points. All figures should be integrated in the text (see example of proper layout and format), or put together at the end of the text.
LaTeX and WORD TEMPLATES To help you prepare your paper, templates in Microsoft WORD 7 and LaTeX, and also an example layout in PDF, can be down loaded from the ESA Publications Division's web server whose URL is:
