Paper Submission

The paper submission site has now been closed as the deadline dates have passed.

All authors have now been notified regarding the status of abstracts. For those that have been accepted for oral and poster presentation, you are now required to work on your full manuscript and submit before 1 August 2005.

Full papers should be submitted using the following format and again can be uploaded online.

Space in the Proceedings is very limited. Invited papers are allowed 6 journal pages and Contributed papers (oral and posters) are allowed no more than 4 journal pages. A journal page accommodates approximately 800 word equivalents. The allowed space is to contain title, abstract, all figures, tables (~300 to 400 word equivalents per figure or table) and references. Use A4 page size with 2.0 cm margins all round. The paper layout should be exactly as shown in the example, but in single column format. The Abstract should be no longer than 200 words. Provide up to six keywords. Use Times New Roman 12 pt with single line spacing. Incorporate the figures and tables in the text at the size that you expect them to have when published. The content should be easily readable. References as in the example. Once the manuscript is complete, convert to pdf format (link to 'pdf by email' site) and upload.

Note, a CD ROM containing all the submitted manuscripts before review and revision will be provided to conference attendees. The Proceedings will be published in Applied Surface Science and will only contain papers accepted after passing through the full refereeing process.
