Full papers, short papers and demos will be presented during the main Symposium (18th-20th September 2002). Full papers and short papers will be held in the "Auditorium", whereas demos will be presented in the Demo room (Room number 30, Building A). 

September 17th 2002 will be the day only dedicated to workshops and tutorials. Both workshops are full-day workshops, which will simultaneously be held that day (Workshop 1 in Room n. 27, Workshop 3 in Room n. 28). Both tutorials are half-day tutorials (Tutorial 2 will be held in the morning, Tutorial 1 in the afternoon), and both will be held in the same room (Room n. 29). Therefore, on September 17th 2002 you can participate in one (or both) tutorials, or alternatively in just one workshop (at the most).  

During the Symposium an Internet room will be available (Room number 37, Building A)  

Instructions for presenters (long papers and short papers): The presentations of long papers and short papers will be held in the "Auditorium" of the CNR Research Area of Pisa, where will be available a projector connected with a PC (with Microsoft Windows 98 SE operating system) and Microsoft PowerPoint 2000 already installed . The organisation of the presentations will be the following:
  • Long papers: 30 minutes (20 minutes for presentation + 10 minutes for questions and discussion)
  • Short papers: 15 minutes (10 minutes for presentation + 5 minutes for questions and discussion)
