Announcement and Call for Papers


The 8th. URSI Forum is offering a meeting opportunity to all Belgian researchers preparing a PhD in the different scientific fields covered by URSI (International Union of Radio Science - Union Radioscientifique Internationale). Researchers with a PhD are also welcome to present significant advances in their postdoctoral research. The meeting offers to them and to the academic and scientific staff of universities and institutes a unique opportunity to be informed about the different research programmes in Radio Science.


Following evaluation of previous editions of the URSI Forum, the structure of the Forum will consist of Poster Sessions (contributions will be placed in the relevant URSI session). A preview session of the posters on display (3 minutes per poster) will be organised.

Submission of abstracts:

The contributions will be evaluated by the Scientific Programme Committee. For a final year PhD project or a follow up project, the evaluation will be based on a summary (maximum 4 pages) of the project to be submitted by the applicant. For an ongoing PhD project a 1 page abstract must be submitted. Submission is required by 15 November 2000.

Electronic submission of abstracts prepared in MS Word for a PC is prefered (RTF file is also acceptable).

An area of 1m (wide) x 2m (high) will be available for all selected posters.


The proceedings of the URSI Forum will consist of a collection of submitted abstracts and summaries and will be distributed at the Forum to all participants.


Registration is required before 1 December 2000 by returning the enclosed form.

Registration is free for authors of URSI-affiliated institutions. All others must pay a fee of 2000 BEF to cover expenses (proceedings, lunch, coffee breaks and reception).


Final Programme:

The final programme, including, titles of sessions and poster presentations, time schedule and directions to the Planetarium, will be sent by e-mail by 9th December. Since this year, the Forum is open to an international audience, and will hence have the status of an international conference.
