Dan Caesarea Hotel, Israel, (27 Feb. - 1 March 2000)
You are invited to participate in the Fifteenth International Workshop on Water Waves and Floating Bodies, to be held in the Dan Caesarea Hotel, Caesarea, Israel, and chaired by Touvia Miloh of the University of Tel- Aviv. The Workshop will start on Sunday, 27 February, afternoon and end on Wednesday, 1 March, evening. The total cost should be around $600 per person, including meals and accommodation.
The objective of the Workshop is to provide a forum for informal discussions of fundamental research, of mutual interest to both engineers and scientists, in the broad area of wave interactions with fixed, floating or submerged bodies. In addition to established experts in the field, younger workers and Ph.D. students are encouraged to participate. To preserve an atmosphere conductive to informal discussion, attendance is limited to the authors of accepted papers and session chair-persons.
Prospective participants are encouraged to submit only one abstract as the first author. The technical program will be based upon concise talks which should be similar in style to seminars and colloquia, except that background information which is well known by specialists working in the same field should be omitted. Work which is still incomplete may be presented, but material already published and widely disseminated should not be reported. Each speaker will present a concise talk of twenty minutes, followed by a five minute discussion period. Prospective participants should prepare an extended abstract of their proposed talk.
