II. Abstracts:

The abstracts committee (Wiesław Krajka, Katarzyna Sokołowska and Wojciech Kozak) have screened all the abstracts submitted and have decided upon acceptance of papers for the conference. These decisions have been communicated to participants in individual letters sent through traditional post. We are preparing a booklet of abstracts which we will have printed for the conference.
