Publication Guidelines

Last Updated: Wednesday, January 8 8:00 pm

The proceedings for this year's workshop will be published by IOP Publishing in the Journal of Physics: Conference Series. Authors must prepare their papers using Microsoft Word or LaTeX, according to the journal guidelines and templates, and then convert these files to PDF.

Before submitting papers, all authors must read the journal's publishing license located at the following URL:
By submitting a paper, the author agrees with the terms of the license.

Papers should be submitted in PDF with the page size set as A4 and the margins set as 25mm. Any figures should be supplied at a resolution of at least 600dpi, and appropriately sized (i.e. 7cm or 550 pixels wide). The publisher will accept figures in any of the commonly used formats (jpg, eps, tif, etc).

Again, MS Word and Latex templates can be downloaded from this link:

Paper Submission Checklist

  • Paper size is European A4.
  • Margins are at least 25mm all round.
  • The paper includes the author name and affiliation (full address including country).
  • There are no page numbers, or headers and footers, within the paper.
  • The PDF is free of formatting errors (e.g. corrupt equations, missing or poor resolution figures), since conversion from Word to PDF can introduce formatting errors.
  • Text is single spaced, not double spaced.
  • The PDF file is editable and not password protected.
  • All pages are portrait (landscape pages should be rotated).
  • Reference lists are checked for accuracy. References can only be linked via CrossRef if they are correct and complete.
  • Figures are placed within the text, not collected at the end of the document.
  • A thorough proof read is conducted to check standard of English and ensure wording is clear and concise.
