RPSD 2002 Abstract Submission

Abstracts are due by October 15, 2001. Abstracts should describe the material to be presented in sufficient detail that the techical program committee can assess the proposed content and assign abstracts to the appropriate session. An abstract book will be available to conference attendees.

Abstracts must be 250 words or less. Do not include figures or tables. All abstracts must be submitted electronically, as an e-mail attachment, to

Authors will be notified electronically in December 2001 if their abstract is accepted. If accepted, full paper submission is required by February 1, 2002. Papers will be assembled into a Conference Proceedings to be distributed at the meeting.
