Abstracts for EUG XI

The full text of all the abstracts in each symposium is now available from this website as PDF files which can be viewed or printed. No restrictions are placed on the printing of this material, and delegates may print as many of the symposia as they wish to view before arrival in Strasbourg.

The address of each set of abstracts is where XXXX is the code for the symposium. Delegates may access these pages directly, or alternatively use the links to the abstracts of each symposium given below.

Delegates may also find papers of interest from the names of the authors, using the Index of Authors for EUG XI. This index gives the scheduling code for each paper, which provides the symposium, date, time, style and location of each presentation, together with the page number of that paper in the abstract and programme volumes.

The Programme for EUG XI is also now available from this website.
