Proceedings

Proceedings are published as follows:

 

As usual, papers will be published in a refereed journal with IOP. The journal will be Plasma Phys. Contr. Fusion (PPCF), for the main papers, and Journal of Physics Conference Series (JPCS) for the other papers.

 

- The papers published in PPCF will follow the usual refereeing process of this journal and will be published as a cluster of papers related to the Varenna-Lausanne Theory of Fusion Plasmas 2020 Conference.
Follow the guidelines and the LaTeX templates. Note that for PPCF papers from non-invited speakers, we need to receive a pdf by Friday October 9, 2020 or have an exchange by email to organize the refereeing process. PPCF papers should aim for final submission early 2021.

 

- The papers published in JPCS will be non-anonymously refereed mainly by the scientific committee and participants of the conference, supervised by X. Garbet and O. Sauter, acting as Editors. The JPCS papers will have a header stating explicitly that the papers have been refereed. Naturally, the refereeing process will be lighter (typically one referee) than the PPCF publication.
Follow the guidelines and the LateX templates. Note that YOU NEED TO PROVIDE THE PDF PAPER BY FRIDAY OCTOBER 9, 2020, so that we can organize the refereeing process in due time.

 

When submitting the paper, the author can propose a publication in PPCF or JPCS, however the final decision is under the responsibility of the scientific committee. Typically invited papers are expected to be published in PPCF and contributed papers in JPCS.

 

Papers, invited (typically ~10 pages, but no hard limit) and contributed (typically 6-8 pages, but no hard limit), have to follow the Latex guidelines and templates given for PPCF and for JPCS (see above) respectively.

 

The deadline for the JPCS papers is the week before the conference. Thus send the paper before October 9, 2020, by email to .

 

You can see the previous proceedings here 2010_PPCF, 2010_JPCS, 2012_PPCF, 2012_JPCS, 2014_PPCF, 2014_JPCS, 2016_PPCF, 2016_JPCS, 2018_PPCF, 2018_JPCS
