Introduction

The Proceedings, i.e. the Invited and Contributed Papers, of the 52nd Session of The International Statistical Institute will be published in The Bulletin of the International Statistical Institute. The Proceedings will be published in print, as a CD-ROM and on the Internet.

The paper may be written in any of the working languages of the ISI, i.e. English or French. The maximum length of an Invited Paper is 4 pages. The maximum length of a Contributed Paper is 2 pages. The paper written in English must have a summary in French, and vice versa.

You are encouraged to submit your paper by e-mail. However, the manuscripts reproduced or typewritten on the special composition sheets enclosed in this package are also accepted.

Please note that you can submit your paper by using an electronic form on the homepage of the Session.

There are four alternatives to create and submit the manuscripts of the papers for the Proceedings:

(i) Using Microsoft Word or WordPerfect and submitting the paper by using e-mail.

Please note that PS or PDF files are also accepted.

(ii) Using any other text editor and submitting the paper by using e-mail.

Please note that the users of some form of TeX (e.g. LaTeX, AMS-TeX, etc.) must save the text in a PS or PDF file. No forms of TeX files can be accepted.

(iii) Using any text editor and submitting the paper by mail.

Comments to (i) - (iii):

  1. The authors should follow the instructions in Attachment 2 as closely as possible, see also the Model for the Manuscripts.
  2. File formats other than Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, PS and PDF cannot be accepted.
  3. All submitted material (text, tables, graphs and figures) must be compiled in one file.
  4. Ready-made style sheets or templates for Microsoft Word, WordPerfect and LaTeX can be downloaded from the Instructions for Creating Manuscripts 1.
  5. The author should submit a printed version, reproduced by using a good-quality laser or ink-jet printer, of his/her manuscript to the NOC. Only then can the NOC guarantee that the manuscript will be processed for publication.

(iv) Using a typewriter and submitting the paper by mail.

Comments to (iv):

  1. The author should follow the instructions in Attachment 3 as closely as possible, see also the Model for the Manuscripts.
  2. The manuscripts of the papers are not excluded from the electronic publications, since they are converted into electronic form by scanning. To facilitate the conversion process the authors are requested to take great care in creating the original.

The Length of Manuscripts

The maximum length of Invited Papers is 4 pages. The maximum length of Contributed Papers is 2 pages. Longer manuscripts cannot be published.

Formatting

The NOC will not edit the manuscripts - the manuscripts are published exactly in the form created by the authors. Therefore the authors should format the manuscripts according to the instructions given in Attachment 2 or 3; see also the Model for Manuscripts

If Microsoft Word, WordPerfect or LaTeX is used for the preparation of manuscripts, ready-made style sheets or templates can be downloaded from the Instructions for Creating Manuscripts 1.

Deadline

The deadline for the submission of manuscripts is April 10, 1999.
