PUBLICATION LICENSE FOR OPEN ACCESS PROCEEDINGS PAPERS.
IOP Conference Series operates a publishing license, under which authors retain
copyright of their papers and they no longer need to sign and submit copyright
assignment forms. Any author who wishes to publish in IOP Conference Series must
agree to the terms of the license and by submitting a paper for publication it is
assumed all authors of the paper agree, in full, to the terms of the license.
The license terms and conditions are available online.
While the recommended poster size is 2' wide by 4' tall, the allotted
display area for each poster session will be 4' wide by 4' tall and can
thereby accommodate posters slightly larger than the recommended
dimensions, including A0.
Poster materials can be uploaded via the CHEP 2012 Indico
My Conference page.
For detailed poster guidelines and recommendations, please see the section "Poster
Presentation Guidelines" in
CHEP Bulletin #3.
Preparing your paper
IOP Conference Series uses author-supplied PDFs for all online and print
publication. Authors are asked to prepare their papers using Microsoft Word
or LaTeX, according to the journal guidelines and templates, and then
convert these files to PDF. Full instructions on preparing your paper,
along with templates, can be found on the
Series website. There are no limitations on paper size.
It is important to ensure that when you submit your paper, it is
in its final form ready for publication, and has been thoroughly proofread.
IOP do not copyedit papers and will not send out author proofs prior to
publication. Please note: post-publication changes are not usually
permitted, unless there are exceptional circumstances, so please ensure your
paper has been checked for errors.

How to submit online

contributions (oral and poster presentations) is now closed.
Please submit your paper online using the Editorial Manager™ conference submission and
peer review system.
The deadline for submitting contributions was June 22, 2012.
Registering with Editorial Manager™
Before you can submit your paper, you will need to register, a process
that takes just a few minutes. Once registered you will receive an e-mail
with your username and password. You can then login as an Author.
Once you have submitted your PDF, Editorial Manager will process a COPY
of it to prepare a form suitable for peer review so you will also receive
an e-mail asking you to approve the processed COPY of your PDF. You must
check this COPY before your paper can be forwarded to the proceedings
editors for peer review.
Please do not submit multiple versions of your paper
Authors are kindly asked not to submit multiple versions of the same paper.
Duplicate papers and multiple versions cause considerable extra
administrative work for the proceedings editors who may have many hundreds
of papers to review. Your cooperation is much appreciated, thank you.
If you need to upload a corrected/amended version of your paper
If you need to make a change to your paper that has not been requested by the
proceedings editors, you will need to login and send an e-mail to the editors
(firstname.lastname@example.org) asking them to approve the
