ology, including history. Submissions are in two parts:
(a) A 200 word abstract in English which will be published in the
journal Brain & Cognition, if it is accepted by the Program Com-
mittee for presentation at TENNET V. Eight (8) copies are re-
quired if you submit by regular mail; if you submit by FAX or E-
mail, please do so only once.
(b) A detailed description of the paper, maximum two pages long,
in either English or French, which will be refereed by the Pro-
gram Committee. Authors who choose to have their descriptions
refereed blindly should prepare the abstact and two-page summary
accordingly, using a code you have identified to the chair of the
program committee. Eight (8) copies are required if you submit by
regular mail; if you submit by FAX or E-mail, do so only once.
Please make sure that your complete mailing address, with your
institutional affiliation if any, is included with your submiss-
ion, particularly if you submit by E-mail or FAX. This is need-
ed to properly prepare the program, if your paper is accepted.
Your submission should be sent by post, E-mail or Fax to arrive
by the December 20 deadline, to the chair of the Program Comm-
ittee: Please remember: 8 copies are needed EXCEPT if you send
it by FAX or E-mail!
If you present a poster at TENNET V, note that the poster frames
are approximately 4 feet by 8 feet. Please make the print size
on your poster large enough to be easily read so that several
people can ponder its significance at the same time.
