The convenors are responsible for the preparation of the Bulletins. Therefore, the following rules should be followed thoroughly:

    1. Send the "Instructions for Authors" to the active participants in good time (e.g. together with the second announcement or at least 1 month) before the meeting and refer to the website where the instructions are available for download
    2. A hard copy and an electronic version of the announced paper should be submitted to you during the meeting. You may give the authors at maximum about two weeks additional time after the meeting for revising their manuscripts, if necessary.
    3. The manuscripts should be revised (and corrected) by you or another experienced speaker of the English or French languages.
    4. Make sure that the authors have followed the "Instructions for Authors".
    5. Prepare the Title page, the Preface, the List of Participants, the Contents. This first part of the Bulletin has a roman paging. For the Contents see the following example.
    6. Contact Dr. Ute Koch (Publication Commission) and ask for the Bulletin Number, so that you can prepare the header for each article with indication of the page numbers.
    7. Each contribution should begin with an uneven page number (right page). If the paper ends with an uneven page number, please add an empty page to the article. If abstracts of only 1 page are arranged in succession, they do not need to be be separated by an empty page.
