: Instructions For Preparing Short Reports

: Your Report should be typed on the grid paper prepared for the
: Short Reports volume and supplied by writing or calling our office. 
: If time does not permit, we will accept the 2-page Report typed on
: plain white paper, each page being within a grid 14.5 cm wide x 19
: cm deep. The black outline around these instructions is the size

: letter stating the name of the person who will be presenting the
: poster. This should be a registered attendee and will also be the
: person we will contact when a decision has been made whether or not
: the Report has been accepted for display or for oral presentation. 
: You may send the registration along with the Short Report. This
: letter should also state the name of the session to which your
: poster is related. Please be sure that your letter has your
: address, phone, fax numbers and E-mail address if applicable.

: Key Words or Phrases - Please provide five (5) keywords or phrases

: either by topic, or by organizational headings, e.g., Introduction,
: Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, References. 
: References: refer to these in the text by number in the order in
: which they ar mentioned. Collect the bibliography at the end in
: the style of the example. Reports will not be considered if a
: bibliography is not included. Acknowledgments should be the final
