Instructions for paper preparation for the proceedings

The authors of an accepted abstract are asked to provide a written contribution for the symposium proceedings. The contributions will be published by AIP, in their conference proceedings series, after a peer review process.

The maximum length will be 8 pages for poster and 10 pages for oral contributions. All papers must be a minimum of 4 pages to comply with AIP publication requirements.
