Proceedings

Proceedings are published in the book series "Theory of Fusion Plasmas"

 

Papers, invited (10-12 pages) and contributed (6 pages) need to follow the LateX format explained on the web site: AIP will publish the proceedings in 2006, with online access.

Instructions for authors can be found at: http://www.aip.org/proceedings

The format of the book is 6 x 9 inch, therefore the direct link is http://proceedings.aip.org/proceedings/6x9.jsp

To get the LaTeX templates: ftp://ftp.aip.org/ems/tex/macros/proceedings/6x9/aipproc_6s.zip

 

The files should be given at the conference or sent by email at Varenna-Lausanne@epfl.ch. IT IS IMPORTANT THE AUTHORS READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE WEB PROVIDED BY AIP (http://proceedings.aip.org/proceedings/6x9.jsp ) AND THAT YOU CHOOSE THE CORRECT FORMAT, NAMELY 6X9 INCHES

 

If you send the files by email, please make one zip file containing the LateX text file, the eps Figures AND a pdf version of the paper. The zip file should be named with: lastname_Varenna06_paper.zip. If you have the files on a USB key for example, we shall copy them during the conference. For the paper to be published, you will need to sign the copyright form during the conference.

 

Use either the LateX templates or the MS Word template, according to the guidelines described at http://proceedings.aip.org/proceedings/6x9.jsp

 

You should send us the original files AND a pdf version of your paper named: LastName_Varenna06_paper.pdf

 

The deadline for the paper is the week of the conference. Thus either you send the paper by email to Varenna-Lausanne@epfl.ch or you bring it to the registration desk during the conference.
