Dear colleagues and friends, April 2nd 2012 (corrected May 2)
We are delighted to submit to the organizational information, including the final program. We are grateful for your active participation thanks to which we have been able to compose a very appealing program, a rich basis for a vivid interdisciplinary exchange on the topic.
The final program of the Seminar is given hereafter.
But this will only be possible if all speakers strictly adhere to the time limits. We have an extremely dense program. Each speaker has a 30 minutes slot. The presentation must be no longer than 20 minutes, 10 minutes remaining for discussion. This is only possible if the powerpoint or overhead presentations are limited to a maximum of 18 slides, including the title slide. Please remember that an oral presentation is always a summary of what one has to say and cannot mimic the detailed form of a written manuscript. So you will certainly understand that we will be obliged to strictly enforce our time plan in order to have a smooth and pleasant course of our seminar.
All the more so, we invite our contributing participants to submit their materials (in the form of scientific articles - Guidelines for authors: http://en.biocosmology.ru/electronic-journal-biocosmology---neo-aristotelism/guidelines-for-authors) to the next issue of our journal “Biocosmology – neo-Aristotelism”). We plan to make this issue in May (the deadline for manuscripts submission is April 31). We sincerely encourage you to contribute!
As for the presentation in the Seminar, a beamer, a laptop, an overhead projector and a white board will be installed. Bring your powerpoint slides on a stick. Please tell us if you need anything else for presentation.
A conference fee of 100 Euro per person (payable in cash on location) will be necessary in order to cover the meals and transportation. If our present attempts to receive a sponsoring are successful we might be able to reduce this fee.
On Saturday evening we will have a short meal right after the seminar, then depart for a cultural event that lasts one hour (19.30-20.30, classical music with dance/eurythmy), and then go to a nice place to have ice cream or desert together. On Sunday evening we will have a farewell dinner at 20.00. It would be great if you could participate at these events which will be without extra costs for you.
The following hotels have rooms reserved for the Seminar on Philosophy, Medicine and Biocosmology at Witten/Herdecke University. Please arrange your lodging directly with the hotel of your choice. Please note that rooms must be booked until May 15th !
We would be thankful if you could confirm your participation until May 1st by E-mail (email@example.com).
Please also let us know if you participate on the cultural event on Saturday evening and/or on Sunday evening.
In case of questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
