Symposia Home


The written contributions from the invited speakers will be published by Cambridge University Press as part of the Carnegie Observatories Astrophysics Series. The proceedings from the four Centennial Symposia will inaugurate the Series, which also will be the forum to record proceedings of future symposia held at Carnegie Observatories. Each volume will be edited by the respective organizers of the symposium. It is our intention to produce a set of high-quality, hardcover volumes on a wide range of astrophysical topics. Each volume will contain a set of comprehensive, in-depth, authoritative review articles by leading experts. The write-ups of the contributed talks and posters will be published only in electronic form; they, along with the review papers, will be posted on this site.

Participants should prepare their papers using the following Cambridge University Press Latex files. You will need the class files caps.cls and cupbook.cls. In addition, you will need one of the following style files: for invited reviews, please use ociwsymp2.sty; for contributed papers, please use ociwsymp2e.sty. An example of a template file and its output are template2.tex and template2.ps.

The written manuscripts should not exceed 20, 10, and 5 (single-sided) pages for invited, contributed, and poster presentations, respectively. These page limits include figures and bibliography. Please format your papers with postscript figures embedded.

The deadline for submission of contributed and poster papers is 10 January 2003 . Note that these papers will be made accessible to the invited speakers, who will make an effort to incorporate relevant material in their reviews. If you want your contribution to be considered, we advise you to adhere to the above deadline.

The deadline for submission of invited reviews is 1 January 2003 . We have a firm timetable to deliver the final manuscripts to the publisher. Late manuscripts will be rejected. If you cannot meet the above deadline, please contact the organizers with sufficient advance notice to discuss possible alternative plans.
