Those wishing to contribute to the meeting sent an abstract to their National Secretary who, if it was approved, was sent to the Secretary General, who gathered all the abstracts together before meeting with the appropriate three Convenors. If the abstract was accepted by the Convenors, they informed the authors and asked for the full contribution. Then, 35 copies of the full contribution, 3 sheets double-sided maximum, were sent to the Secretary General at least 8 weeks prior to the meeting. The Secretary-General combined all contributions for all Working Groups and despatched them to the National Secretaries for copying and circulation to their selected delegate and advisors. Copies were also sent to the Executive Committee.
For the Working Group meetings, each member country or group of countries of the IDDRG was allowed 1 delegate and 2 technical advisors to each of the 3 Working Groups who could contribute freely to the discussions. Observers were allowed to attend at the discretion of the organizers.
