Manuscripts and Proceedings

Conference proceedings will be published and the manuscripts will be refereed before the conference. The manuscripts are expected to include some new (unpublished) material, even if this material consists of preliminary results. Manuscripts that simply reproduce, review, or summarize previously published results will not be given serious consideration unless a review was explicitly requested by the Editors. The conference proceedings will be published as a special issue of Physica B: Condensed Matter. The Guest Editors will be N.T. Bagraev, V.V. Emtsev, and S.K. Estreicher.

Plenary and Invited speakers are allowed up to 8 and 6 printed pages, respectively, whereas Contributed (oral, poster, Corbett) papers must not exceed 4 printed pages. To evaluate the length of your manuscript please download and fill in the "length calculation form". The completed "length calculation form" has to be submitted together with your manuscript. Please download, by clicking here, the Physica B instructions for the preparation of your manuscripts.

The manuscripts must be submitted in either Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats. If you wish to submit your manuscript in Word format, please download the Word template (ignore any warning about disabled or missing macros). That template gives a correct indication of the length of a Word manuscript. Please download the LaTEX template for submission of your manuscript in that format. To referee the manuscripts efficiently and quickly they have to be submitted also in Adobe Acrobat format (***.pdf file).

Since the Conference Program includes about 400 contributed papers and the deadline of the Proceedings presentation at the Physica B office is only two weeks after the Conference, we have to follow a preliminary referee's procedure. Because of this, your manuscript, together with the items indicated below, must be electronically submitted to the Editorial Board not later than June 25, 2009, 12:00 PM Coordinated Universal Time (U.T.C.) formerly Greenwich Mean Time (G.M.T.). Therefore, the complete package contains:

  1. The electronic version of the manuscript in either Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats.
  2. Electronic versions of figures in TIFF, EPS, or PS.
  3. The completed "length calculation form".
  4. The electronic version of the manuscript in the Adobe Acrobat format (***.pdf file).

The manuscript and figures should be labeled with both the corresponding author name and the index assigned to the corresponding accepted abstract.

It should be noted again that all the papers will be refereed before the conference. A limited number of computers will be available at the editorial office during the conference. Minor revisions can be done during the conference. Manuscripts that need major revisions must be returned within two (2) weeks after the end of the conference. This deadline is firm. Late papers will not be included in the proceedings.
