We are looking for sponsors! Help us organise the 2008 issue.

Call for Paper

After the extremely unsuccessful 2006 issue, we are proud to announce the second edition of the Review of April Fool's day Transactions (RAFT'2007). Last year, we reached the incredible amount of zero paper submission. We hope we will be able to increase even further the number and quality of the papers published. This time, the commitee made tremendous efforts to offer you the best of the best of nonsensical, absurd, lorem-ipsumish, technobabblish and so so unscientific breakthroughs.

You are invited to submit a paper, by March 20th, 2007, to the RAFT Program Committee for consideration at the 2007 edition. A peer-review process will select the best papers which will be published in the transactions. Of the accepted papers, the best ones will be invited to present their papers at the Cafeteria in Montbonnot and to defend their perspective at a plenary of their peers.


We will select high quality papers based on their rigor, technical soundness, originality, humor, funniness, weirdness and comprehensibleness. Gibberish and gobbledygook jargon and blah blah is highly recommended. Topics are entirely up to the authors, but the scientific approach and process should receive special attention.

Here is a list of example papers expected:


Papers must be submitted via email to either Rodolphe Héliot (RodolphedotHeliotatinrialpesdotfr) or Antoine Zimmermann (AntoinedotZimmermannatinrialpesdotfr) and should fit one of the following formats: LATEX or Micro$oft Word. Paper language can be either French or English.
