18th International Workshop on Inelastic Ion-Surface Collisions (IISC-18)
September 26 – October 1, 2010, Gatlinburg, Tennessee, USA
The conference proceedings will be published by ELSEVIER Publ. in a special (but consecutively numbered) issue of Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, Section B: Beam Interactions with Materials and Atoms (NIMB). Regular participants who pay the full registration fee will receive a hard copy of this special issue. Students can order a hard copy of the proceedings for $61 during registration.
Only manuscripts of contributions presented at the conference will be considered for publication and we will accept one paper per registered participant. Those who have sent multiple abstracts are encouraged to concentrate their efforts on one quality paper only. Submission of a manuscript implies that it has not been published or is not being considered for publication elsewhere and that the authors have obtained the necessary authorization for publication.
The length of papers should be around four to five journal pages for contributed papers (both oral and poster communications). Invited progress reports and review lectures should be up to six and eight pages, respectively. Manuscripts that are deemed to be too long or too short will be returned to the authors. In order to avoid publication of extended abstracts, NIMB will not accept papers that are three journal pages or shorter.
Papers will be reviewed by referees who will not necessarily be selected among conference participants. When submitting papers, authors are invited to provide the names of potential referees. Due to close scheduling in the editing and publishing processes, manuscripts requiring extensive modifications (regarding length, contents or language) and a second round of refereeing may have to be rejected.
The proceedings of this conference are sponsored by the Office of Fusion Energy Sciences, U.S. Department of energy.
