PROCEEDINGS
Elsevier Science B.V. will publish the Proceedings of the "INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY AND PARTICLE PHYSICS" VILLA OLMO, 5-9 OCTOBER 1998 in the PROCEEDINGS SUPPLEMENTS section of the journal NUCLEAR PHYSICS B (page format 19 x 26 cm).
The Authors have to know that their papers will not be accepted if they have been published elsewhere, or are expected to be published elsewhere.
The Proceedings will be produced from author-prepared camera-ready copy, and the Organizing Committee will undertake to ensure delivery of the complete camera-ready typescript.
