They will also link their journal issue with the journal issue prepared
by another participant of the workshop. Time permitting, they will also
prepare a web page giving the index of articles, etc. They will be trained
to upload and maintain their issues.
Those who are really motivated to learn are welcome. They may
bring with them at least two new articles of their own, and three articles
of others in the electronic format. If they do not have their own laptop,
they have to be prepared to work during the night or morning in the CIIL
computer lab in order to finish their daily home work, which will be heavy.
Most of participants' time will be spent not on listening
to lectures, but on actually working on your web pages! Strict discipline
will be enforced.
