The abstracts will be reviewed by members of the Cataloguing Section's Standing Committee. Successful proposals will be identified by 31 January 2006. Full papers will be due by 15 April 2006 to allow time for review of papers and preparation of translations; papers should be no longer than 20 pages. 15-20 minutes will be allowed for a summary delivery of the paper during the Cataloguing Section's programme.
