This list contains the basic address information for electronic
communication with researchers in the area of actions and change:
name, affiliation, WWW home page (implicit in the name, if available),
and E-mail address (explicit, if available). Acknowledgements of
sources, explanation of conventions, and an E-mail link for the whole
list are found at the end of the page.
The indication [brs], if present, contains a link to an
index page listing those of the author's publications which have
so far been entered into the ECSTER database.
The information for
many of the entries in this list (particularly entries from outside
Europe) have originally been collected by
Sending mail to all the above
If you have a message you wish to share with all members in the above
list, we offer you two options:
Send it by E-mail directly to all of them.
Send the message to us, and we'll include it in the next issue of the
The second option has the disadvantage of a slight delay, but it also has
It makes it easy for the reader to return to the message if he or
she needs it later on. Back copies of the Newsletter are of course
retained in ECSTER.
Researchers who were not on the list when you sent out the message
will be able to see it - the Newsletter is openly available.
Your message can include clickable URL:s and they can be immediately
used by every reader. If you send the E-mail directly then it depends
on what E-mail tool he or she is using. This is particularly important
if you are sending out information about a research paper.

The present list is generated automatically from a small database
containing the required information (and no other). The same database
is used for providing
WWW and E-mail links in other ECSTER listings involving names of
researchers, for example, in listings of publications.
We try to put maximal attention to the correct spelling of names, also
including the diacritics. The proper position of a name in the
alphabetical order is non-obvious for last names beginning with
a prefix (for example "del", "van", "van der"), which may be ordered
either on the prefix or on the name-proper following the prefix.
For such cases we use the "Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules", where the
main principle is to use that element which is the most commonly used,
for alphabetization, in the country or
language area where the person is active. In many cases, including
"del", "van", and "van der", the name following the prefix is used.
Letters with a diacritic mark are
alphabetized as equivalent with the letter without diacritic. For example, a, ä, and å are alphabetized the same.
Major web browsers only support "national" characters in Romance and
Germanic languages, but not those in Slavic languages such as Polish.
For such cases, the correct spelling is indicated in Latex notation
after the name, in tt font and between angle brackets.
City names are written as their English version for capital cities,
and in the local language (of the country or, if applicable, the region)
for all other cities. For example, "Rome", but "München" rather than
University names use the following abbreviations.
The word "Uni" should be interpreted as a multilingual abbreviation for
"University", "Universität", "Università", etc. Similarly, "TU"
abbreviates "Technische Universität", "Politecnico", "Technische
City names are omitted if they are already implicit in the university
name, otherwise they are included. US affiliations include the
abbreviation for the state, unless the state name is part of the university
name. Exception: if the city name is uninformative in context without
the state indication, the latter is indicated anyway. Examples:
"Uni of Washington, Seattle, USA", but
"Uni of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA".
The data base uses the researcher's last name (omitting any particle)
as the key, unless the
last name is ambiguous (several members of the list have the same
last name) or it contains letters with diacritical characters. In
these cases, the alternative identifier being used as the key in the
database is shown between brackets and in boldface.
The separate box [publications], if present, contains a link to a page
containing the author's publications as maintained by himself or herself.
So far, no names in alphabets other than the latin one have been offered
for inclusion. I expect that we will use the English-oriented variant
of the transliteration, as preferred by the author, in such cases.
If you notice any error, which may occur in spite of our careful proofreading,
please send a note.
The same applies if you wish to contribute additional names,
or additional information pertaining to existing names.
