Contact Ludovic for publication-related questions.

Preparation of extended abstracts

Extended abstract information will be made available on the RAID 2000 web site at the time of the conference. Unless other documents are sent to us, we will use the submission that was made to the program committee as the published text of the extended abstract.

If you wish to provide us with additional or updated information, such as updated paper or slides, you are very welcome to do so. Please send it to Hervé Debar, adding the reference number of your extended abstract. To ensure homogeneity of the documents distributed, we prefer submissions in pdf format.

Preparation of panels

Panel chairs should ensure that all participants to the panel are registered to the RAID 2000 workshop before August 16th, 2000. Panel chairs are invited to provide a description of the panel, to be put on the conference web site, as well as statements or slides by the panelists.

Preparation of presentations

Each presentation is allocated 25 minutes including questions. If provided by the authors, presentation material will be made available on the RAID 2000 website.

A preliminary program is available. Please not that this is a very first draft and is likely to change. Authors will be notified when the definitive program becomes available.
