Poster presentations are also planned in the workshop.
Several posters, which are related in HEDP and HIF researches, will be exhibited during the workshop.
Since an e-mail address of the corresponding author is indicated in their posters, participants can also contact the presenter via e-mail.
We would like the speakers to send your presentation materials in PDF format, if the material can be distributed through this WEB page.
Please be sure before you send us the material if the material has no problem to be distributed.
The PDF materials will be posted on the WEB page, which can be freely accessible from outside.
Please e-mail your available PDF file to T. Kikuchi (firstname.lastname@example.org) till September 20, 2005, if possible.
