1. The city/university to organize the RAI shall as a rule be designated three years before the event takes place.
2. Essential information on an upcoming RAI shall be made available at least one year in advance. (A checklist list of desirable issues to consider is available from the Secretary.) It should be available in printed form during the preceding RAI and communicated by electronic means (e-mail, website) and announcements in selected periodicals (e.g. NABU). It will also figure in the general IAA-website based at Leiden.
Students and accompanying persons get only half that amount
3. Since a meaningful discussion of papers is essential, papers shall preferably be given in English, French or German, and their titles shall be mentioned in time in a provisional programme to be consulted on the website. Informative abstracts shall be provided in time for the programme, which must allow time for discussion when fixing the designated time.
