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 again publish the proceedings in 2008, with online access.

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