List of participants
The meeting will be held in Cracow (Poland), in the Jagiellonian University Conference Centre, in the beginning of September 99 - a week from 5th to 11th (Cracow is a nice historical town, 700 000 inhabitants). A number of people expected to participate (by invitation only because of limited space in the Centre) is about 60 - 80. Financing is provided partly by the Heraues foundation from Germany and from the Polish Committee for Scientific Research - thus the conference will be "a German-Polish meeting".
We would like to have this meeting mainly for presentations of up to date reviews encompassing wide range of problems related to turbulence and cosmic ray particles. Of course, short contributions will be also presented, but we plan to shift most of them to the poster sessions. We expect that these presentations will result in a proceedings' book providing an excellent reference for all interested in the subject.
When thinking about the program for the meeting we tried to select problems which are essential for realistic description of cosmic ray particles' transport and acceleration. In our view theoretical models, particularly the numerical ones, are able to consider nearly all conditions in actual objects in the space. However the knowledge of these conditions is limited among theoreticians. Also, the use of theoretical concepts on particle acceleration is quite extravagant among people constructing models, sometimes in a way incompatible with the conditions met in discussed objects. So, to be fruitful the meeting should allow for critical discussions of wide range of theoretical concepts and measurement data. A rough list of topics could be as follows (it will be modified depending on the final list of speakers):
To avoid repeating the same talks and opinions we would prefer younger scientists to give many of the review talks. We are open for suggestions in that matter.
We plan to limit the number of oral presentations in order to provide more time for the speakers. The oral presentations will contain a number of review talks: 40 min oral presentations for long reviews (+ up to 10 min for discussion, with possibility to include 1-2 min presentations of posters or related topics), 30 min for short reviews (+ 5 min discussion), 15 min for shorter contributions ( + 5 min discussion). Most of short contributed papers will be presented as posters and thus reasonably long poster sessions will be included into the program.
We intend to ask all conference participants to provide manuscripts of their contributions in a written form during the meeting, or very soon after it, to prepare a good reference book. Some form of review of contributions before accepting to publication will be done. We are able to print the proceedings volume in Cracow two or three months after receiving all contributions in the LaTeX format.
The conference fee will include ALL local expenses (double hotel room for one week, meals, a conference dinner, expenses of the meeting organization, a copy of proceedings, etc.). Together it amounts to 350 USD per person. We will try to support partly people requesting and students, but it will depend on the range of support from local resources.
