During MMET*94, about 110
papers were accepted (40% from Ukraine, 40% from Russia, and 20%
from the rest of the world, from Poland to Argentina). Attendance
was over 130 participants, including some 19 from outside of the
former Soviet Union. During MMET*96, about 130 papers were accepted
(75% from Ukraine, 15% from Russia, and 10% from the rest of the
world). Attendance was about 100 participants. At MMET*98 and
MMET*2000, the number of papers was 270 and 199, respectively,
and the number of participants around 250 (60% from Ukraine, 25%
from ex-USSR, and 15% from other countries). The MMET*2002 has
attracted more than 250 participants from 26 countries (papers - 176,
participants - 47% from Ukraine, 25% from ex-USSR, and 28% from other countries).
Attendance estimate for MMET*04
is 200 to 250 participants: 50% from Ukraine, 25% from ex-USSR,
and 25% from other countries. This is due to the central location
of Dnepropetrovsk, better flight connections, and numerous tourist attractions.
The Invited and Regular Papers
accepted to the conference program are to be published
as formal MMET*04 Proceedings by the date of the meeting, i.e.,
approximately September 14, 2004. The publisher is to be
specified later. The format is 6 A4 camera-ready pages for Invited Papers,
and 3 pages for regular ones, so the full proceedings are expected
to have over 800 pages.
