SCHOOL(S) FEES
The fee for a single school is Lit (Italian Lire) 250.000, for both Schools 
is Lit 400.000. It includes programme(s), abstracts of the lectures, coffee 
breaks, the social dinner(s) and the touristic excursion(s).The fee must be 
payed by bank transfer to the following account number: 805905154, Banca 
Commerciale Italiana, Filiale Fuorigrotta, ABI 2002, CAB 3412, p. San Vitale 
13, Napoli, Italy.

REGISTRATION
A small number of grants of Lit 400.000 were made possible from Istituto 
Italiano per gli Studi Filosofici: those whishing to apply for such grants 
should submit a request, together with the application form, in which the 
applicant must confirm that these funds cannot be provided by the Department 
of affiliation.

LODGING
The Schools are residential, both lecturers and students are grouped in the 
same location. Beds in twin room are less expensive than in single room: the 
organizers of the Schools consider worthly sharing a twin or triple room as 
an alternative to occupying a single room. The daily cost of the hotel, 
including bed, breakfast, and one meal (a supplementary meal can be 
available at low price) for an individual is:
single room Lit/night 90.000, Deposit 100.000;
double room Lit/night 75.000, Deposit 100.000;
triple room Lit/night 70.000, Deposit 100.000;
Applicants should pay the Hotel deposit together with the School(s) fee.

ABSTRACT
Partecipants are invited to present, in form of oral presentation (5-10 
min), the results of their own current researches. Applicants should submit 
to the Director of the School one A4 page abstract, which will be included 
among the lecturer abstracts distributed at the School. Furthermore, a short 
article (max four A4 pages) can be brought to the School in order to be 
published later on a planned international book. The article will be placed 
under the judgement of the Advisory Board, which reserves the right of 
rejecting papers for publication.

DEADLINES 
Deadline for application: August 16, 1994
Deadline for accomadation: August 16, 1994
Deadline for abstract submission: August 31, 1994
