Also papers presented will be considered for publication in the Journal
CMBBE
www.informaworld.com/cmbbe

The meeting will also include an organised tour of the facilities of
‘Laboratoire d'Informatique Algorithmique: Fondements et Applications’
Paris which is the location of the meeting.

Also note that exhibition space for companies, publishers and software
houses is free of charge however the meeting fee for each person attending
will apply.
