Does one plant the Cyclamen Neapolitanum tuber with the rounded side up or with the slightly hollowed out side up and when should they be planted (April/May or Sept./Oct)?

Plant tubers in light shade in a rich, well-drained, fertile soil anytime from spring to midsummer. Place them 6" apart and barely cover them, then top with mulch. I haven't ever seen mention of "which way is up", so I presume you're safe planting them either way! Water them regularly after shoots appear. Enjoy!
