Manuscript Submission and Conference Proceedings for the 2004 International
Symposium on Heavy Ion Inertial Fusion
- The Proceedings of the 2004 International Symposium on Heavy Ion Inertial
Fusion will be published as a Special Issue of Nuclear Instruments and Methods
in Physics Research - Section A.
- To be accepted for publication, a manuscript must meet the high standards
of the journal regarding quality and originality of research, grammatical
standards, and format. To make certain this is the case, all the manuscripts
will be evaluated by Referees, whose reports will guide the Guest Editors'
recommendations for acceptance, improvements and revisions, or rejection.
- The deadline for manuscript submission is June 7-11, 2004, the week of the
Symposium. Authors are required to submit three hard copies at the Symposium,
and a PDF file by email or disk before or during the Symposium. These should
be sent to Ms. Lynn Heimbucher at LCHeimbucher@lbl.gov. These will be used
for the refereeing process, which will begin at the Symposium. A source document
(LaTeX or MS Word) of the corrected manuscript must be sent to Lynn Heimbucher
by email or disk when the paper is accepted for publication by the Guest Editors.
This will be copied to a disk with all of the manuscripts to be forwarded
to Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A for final editing
and type setting.
- Manuscript Format
- Manuscripts should be printed throughout with double line spacing and
wide margins on numbered, single-column pages.
- The reference number as mentioned in the book of abstracts should be written on the title pages
of the manuscript. The title pages should contain
the title, authors' names and affiliations, the abstract,
PACS codes and keywords, and the text of any related footnotes. The author
to whom proofs should be sent must be indicated with his/her full postal
address, fax number, telephone number and/or e-mail address.
- Figures and Tables should be numbered and their captions listed together
at the end of the manuscript.
- References in the text to other publications should be numbered consecutively,
e.g. , [2,3], [4-6], etc., and listed together at the end of the text,

- Due to a 600 page limit for the Special Issue, the page limits will
be 4 journal pages for contributed poster papers, and 6 journal pages for
invited, oral papers.
- An average article opening (title up to and including the abstract) is
1/2 a page (depending of course on the number of authors and affiliations.
Approx. 5 authors per line and 1 line for each affiliation). Examples can
be found in the journal.
- A journal page with only typeset text contains about 750 words (or about
4500 characters including blanks).
- A 1-column figure takes up about 1/5 page, a 2?column figure about half
- A 1-column table takes up about 1/5 page, a 2-column table takes up about
half a page (depending of course on the number of entries).
- A 1-line free?standing equation is equivalent to about 30 words (or about
- The space taken up by a figure can be estimated by reducing its size to
the width of 1 column (7.5 cm) and then see if the figure is still legible.
If not, the legends to the axes and the lettering should be enlarged, so
the figure still fits in 1 column. If this is not possible the figure should
be placed in two columns (maximum width 16 cm).
- As noted above, due to a 600 page limit for the Special Issue, the maximum
length of papers must be limited: 4 pages for contributed poster papers, and
6 journal pages for invited oral papers (including figures). If a few months
before the Symposium it appears that there will be a page overrun, authors
may be asked to reduce somewhat the length of their papers.
- To meet a September, 2004, deadline for submission of the accepted manuscripts
to Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, the review process
will begin during the Symposium (many of the Referees will be present) and
will be completed within several weeks. Authors and Referees should be prepared
to communicate with an assigned Guest Editor during the four week period following
