  9. Air Support Conveyance

Spsonors say IWEB2005 is intended to be a forum for engineers and scientists interested in exchanging technical information on concepts and innovations in web handling. "A program committee comprising members of the organizing committee and international program committee will review abstracts and make decisions on acceptability," says IWEB2005 organizers. "Papers with commercial or sales elements will not be accepted. The committee also reserves the right to review the final manuscript to assess the appropriateness of the paper for the conference."
