                --- DESCRIPTION of NSM2006 ---

This Congress continues the tradition of biennial meetings focused on 
nonstandard methods. While the fields of application of nonstandard 
analysis are diverse, the common methodologies and ideas make it 
appropriate to consider nonstandard methods as a unified mathematical 
field of research. NSM2006 is aimed to:
* Bring together researchers working on nonstandard methods and 
  disseminate information about current developments in the subject. 
* Encourage collaborations and interplay between nonstandard 
  methodologies and their fields of applications in mathematics.

The Congress will take place at the Math. Department of the 
University of Pisa, and will include sessions for plenary talks,
invited talks, and contributed talks focused on the various 
topics related to nonstandard methods (foundations, new methods, 
applications, teaching, etc.)

        ---  ABSTRACT SUBMISSION  ---

To submit an abstract, attach it to an email to the 
Congress address: 
                nsm2006 at dm.unipi.it 

Please follow these rules:

1. Specify "submission" in the Subject of your email.
2. Abstracts must be written in plain text or LaTeX.
3. Abstracts must fit in one page when processed.
4. Avoid as much as possible the use of your own macros 
   or external packages.
5. In case of multiple authors, please indicate who will 
   present the paper, and include names, affiliation, and 
   email addresses of all authors.
6. Indicate which one of the 10 sessions/topics as itemized 
   above, better describes the subject of your abstract.

The submission deadline is Friday, March 31.

Decisions on the acceptance of submitted abstracts will be 
communicated to the authors by Friday, April 14th.
