Kluwer Academic Publishers and the editorial board of Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata have agreed to publish a selection of papers from the symposium both as a hardback volume and also as a special edition of the journal. The papers to be included will be subjected to the full rigour of the journal's normal reviewing procedures and should be of a standard, which would warrant submission to the journal under normal conditions. Invited keynote speakers will be allocated a maximum of 10 journal pages, including figures, tables and references (approximately 6000 words). Presenters of short oral communications and posters are invited to submit manuscripts not exceeding 7 printed pages (approx. 4000 words) or short communications (less than 3 printed pages). Preparation of manuscripts should follow the conventions of Entomologia as set out in the instructions to authors given in Vol. 90, no. 1.

It is envisaged that 30-40 papers will be published from among the oral communications and poster presentations. This represents a continuation of the trend that was began with SIP9, but is a departure from the usual conference proceedings volume, which has become somewhat devalued among the scientific community, publishers and journal editors alike. It is in the best interests of the meeting and the journal that the standard of the published symposium volume be high. It is also important that the meeting provides a forum for airing new and as yet only partly substantiated ideas. A full list of participant's names, addresses and titles of talks and posters presented will also be included. The booklet of abstracts will provide a record of all contributions made at the meeting.

Papers for possible inclusion in the proceedings volume must be submitted by

1 pm Monday, August 6

to a member of the staff at the registration desk at LO-skolen.
