Post-deadline Papers

Post-deadline contributed papers can be accepted. Their abstracts will not appear in the book of abstracts, otherwise they will be considered as normal contributed papers.

 

 

Proceedings

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

 

For the first time, in 2010, 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 2010 Conference.
Follow the guidelines and the LaTeX templates. Note that YOU NEED TO PROVIDE THE PDF PAPER BY FRIDAY 27 AUGUST 2010, so that we can organize the refereeing process in due time.

 

- The papers published in JPCS will be 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 27 AUGUST 2010, 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 will be published in PPCF and contributed papers in JPCS.

 

Papers, invited (10-12 pages) and contributed (6-8 pages), have to follow the Latex guidelines and templates given in the zip file for PPCF and for JPCS

 

The deadline for the paper is the week before the conference. Thus send the paper before August 27, 2010, by email to Varenna-Lausanne"at"epfl.ch.
