SECOND CIRCULAR (23-02-2004)
Please find below some further information concerning PLM 2004.
Our abstract submission and reviewing procedure for this year’s PLM is in full swing. We have already received and reviewed a fair number of abstracts, and those of you who have submitted a paper will be soon notified of acceptance. Abstracts of accepted papers will be progressively posted on our WWW page, starting Monday, 23 February 2004.
However, we have decided to extend the abstract submission deadline until 28 February 2004, so there is still some time left for those of you who have not sent us an abstract yet but would like to do so. Please note, too, that the deadlines for certain individual sessions and workshops may be different.
