Notifications have been sent to all the applicants. If, for any reason, you have submitted an application without receiving the related notification, please contact us as soon as possible. A limited number of additional participants can be considered. Thus, the interested people who did not apply by the deadline can still submit an application.

The fee is 800 Euros and covers registration and accommodation costs for the period 24-31 August (7 nights) in double room (to be shared with another participant), half board (breakfast and lunch, dinner of 24 August 2008 included).
The interested participants can also order (with a special discount) a copy of the LNCS volumes 4677, 3655, 2946, 2171, which collect material from the previous editions of FOSAD.

A limited amount of grants will be provided to cover part of the fees for young researchers and for prospective participants from less favoured countries. Please, include a brief curriculum vitae, specify the amount you require, and insert two people to whom letters of recommendation can be asked, if deemed necessary.

Participants are also invited to give a contribution by giving a short presentation (up to 30 min including discussion) of their ongoing work at the open session of FOSAD. Since the available time is quite limited, the interested participants should send a talk proposal (title and abstract) attached with their application form.

Prospective participants should send by June 14, 2008 the application form (plain text by e-mail with subject FOSAD08 application) to:
