Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings and will also be available on CD. Pending author approval they may be available on the IMR website. The proceedings are printed in black and white.

Papers should be 8-12 pages in length (9 point, two columns) and received by May 8, 2002. Formatting details including templates for Word and LaTeX will be available on the conference web site. Final camera-ready papers not meeting formatting guidelines will not be accepted for publication in the proceedings. Paper submissions will be accepted in Word and PostScript, electronic submission only. Papers can be transferred by anonymous ftp to (place in directory pub/incoming/jfsheph/11imr) or can be mailed to

Files transferred via anonymous ftp should be named as follows, to avoid collisions on the ftp site: names should start with the first authors last name, followed by a hyphen, followed by the last four digits of the author's phone number.
