I would particularly like to invite you to respond to the conference call

before or after the conference in the fully refereed International Journal

refereeing and possible publication in the journal, and give you access to
the electronic version of the journal.

The deadline for the final round in the call for papers (a title and short
abstract) is 30 September 2006. Full details of the conference, including an
online call for papers form, are to be found at the conference website -

We look forward to receiving your proposals and hope you will be able to
