Conference Proceedings

The conference proceedings will be published by the American Institute of Physics.

Submission Deadline

The submission deadline is October 1st, 2007. We must receive your manuscript by this date, or we cannot guarantee that it will be included in the proceedings volume.

Manuscript Preparation

The page limits are:

Invited and review talks 9 pages

Please note that color figures are not supported and will be printed in black-and-white. Please check your figure legends carefully if you have color figures.

Submission Instructions

Please submit your paper (pdf file), original paper.tex file, and figures that are included in your paper to the ftp site: hepftp.physics.mcgill.ca.

To submit the files, you need to make one tar file by doing, for example in linux/unix, "tar -cvf LastName_FirstName_N.tar your_files", where "N" is a number for each of the papers you submit. For example, if you only submit one paper, this "N" should be "1". If you submit four papers, you should have four tar files with "N" being from "1" to "4".

Log in the ftp site as an anonymous user, cd the directory pub, and upload your tar file.

We will send you an email confirming receipt of the file after the submission deadline of October 1st.
