Procedure to be followed as far as selection and implementation of submitted projects is concerned:

1. Selection of the projects will be held by members of the steering committee of the festival in cooperation with representatives from collaborating institutions, cultural centres etc. During the selection procedure, proposals should participate in on-line discussions held on the fournos-culture mailing list [http://www.fournos-culture.gr/maillist/] and moderated for the public, concerning the goals and the implementation procedure of the project. The selection will be based on the following criteria:
# Relation of the proposed projects to the "neologistic" reasoning conveyed by the title
# Relation of the proposed projects to the aims of the call, as described above
# Economical criteria (low-budget projects to be preferred)

* Trans-locational collaborative projects will be preferred
* Projects proposed by cultural groups traditionally under-represented at international events will be preferred

2. The selected projects should expose to fournos-culture the progress of their work during their implementation procedure. They should remain open to on-line public discussions and cooperation proposals and should be formed by the exchange of ideas and interaction with the public.

3. The selected projects will be physically presented in or net-connected to Medi@terra 2000 International Festival, Athens in the form of a parallel event (exhibition, projection, on-line connection etc.), workshop or other venue to be judged attainable by the organisers, taking into account technical requirements and cost.
