SPECIAL CONTRIBUTED PAPER SESSION
The Caucus for Women in Statistics is sponsoring a contributed session based on the theme, Exploring the Earth's Systems through Visualization and EDA, at Interface 2000. Please see http://www.research.att.com/conf/IF2000/index.html for information on how to participate in this session.
Computing Science and Statistics, Volume 33, will be produced as a CD-ROM rather than a paper version. This planned production of the Interface 2000 Proceedings will have several beneficial effects for Interface 2000 authors. First of all, the page restrictions formerly in place for the paper versions will be raised. Both invited and contributed authors are allowed to submit 20 pages of manuscript, including text and graphics. This is an increase from 6 pages for invited speakers and 4 pages for contributed speakers. In addition, authors are encouraged to submit their PowerPoint presentations, animations (mpegs, avis), and software source code. It is anticipated that there will be enough space for all materials to be included.
The format for papers will remain as in previous years, a two-column format with printed size 8.5x11". A LaTex template is available on the Interface website (http://www.galaxy.gmu.edu/stats/IFNA.html). Papers will be produced in an Adobe pdf format on the CD. Papers can be submitted in a variety of ways including MS Word files, LaTeX files, TeX files, EXP files, postscript files, and Adobe pdf files. This first year, we also will accept paper versions for authors without the capability to provide electronic versions. Please note that graphics included in pdf files are compressed and may not be as legible as desired. This seems particularly true for pdf files produced from LaTeX and TeX files. Please verify that the graphics are legible before submitting pdf files. Authors are encouraged to use full page graphics for this reason and are encouraged to submit graphics as separate files (gif files for line drawings, jpg files for continuous tone images, eps files for either).
As this will be Interface's first experience producing a professional CD volume, authors are encouraged to be flexible and to work with the publisher. It is planned to have both an Acrobat and an HTML interface for the CD. Papers must be submitted to Interface by July 15, 2000. Email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org are preferred.
