Preparation of Conference Papers

  • A white background is required.
  • The name, affiliation, address, e-mail and web page are all desired.
  • A link to the main conference page is required.
  • The article can be made available on any web server that the author desires. Many authors will choose to have Foresight make the article available on the Foresight web server, but this is not required.
  • Some care in using HTML features is suggested. If new or unusual features are used which might not be supported (or, even worse, might result in misinterpretations) by older browsers or text-only browsers (such as lynx), then an appropriate warning should be included at the beginning of the article.


WARNING: This page uses the <sup> and <sub> convention for superscripts and subscripts. If "103" is the same as "103" then your browser does not support superscripts. If "xi" is the same as "xi" then your browser does not support subscripts. Failure to support superscripts or subscripts can lead to confusion in the following text, particularly in interpreting exponents.
