--- FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT ---


25 YEARS AFTER THE DISCOVERY: 
SOME CURRENT TOPICS ON LENSED QSOs

Santander (Spain), 15th-17th December 2004
----------------------------------------------------------------

  The aim.- Three years after the GLITP workshop on gravitational lens monitoring (Tenerife 2001), 
we feel that a new meeting in 2004 could be interesting for all astronomers who would 
like to exchange their exciting new results on Gravitationally Lensed QSOs (GLQs) with 
their colleagues. The workshop should provide an excellent opportunity for GLQ groups to 
advance their research and strengthen cooperations. The meeting will be held at the 
University of Cantabria, Santander, Spain.
 
   Topics & final scheme.- The workshop will focus on light curves, flux ratios, lens objects,
microlensing and spectroscopy of GLQs, covering observational work, direct analysis and interpretation, confrontation 
between observations and models, theoretical predictions and so on. The final scheme consists of an initial session
including  introduction topics, as well as several sessions with 25 + 5 min contributed talks. We also want to stimulate 
new efficient observational/theoretical collaborations (e.g., between diferent groups working with optical telescopes 
and data, between people working in radio and optical astronomy, and so on). With this aim  we have 
reserved a secondary room (besides of the main room) for collaboration meetings, etc.
 
             FINAL PROGRAM (HTML File)
 
 
  Proceedings.- We have designed a Power-Point (ppt) template, which is now available.
From the template, each speaker can easily prepare her/his contribution, introducing text, tables, figures, images, and so 
on. If the author thinks that her/his visual contribution is self-explanatory, we will publish that material on the Web. 
Otherwise, the author can introduce complementary explanations (sound) to the diapositives, i.e., it is also 
possible to publish a reply of the whole presentation (image + sound). The final ppt files will be 
www-posted by January 2005. We also need a PDF abstract of your possible contribution. 
It must follow a simple scheme: title, authors and institutes, and main text. You can submit the 
PDF file to any LOC member. Please, submit the abstract before December 3 !. 
You can also modify the current version of your abstract. The newer version 
will be included in  the list of contributions.
