Authors of work presented at the conference are invited to contribute a paper to the conference proceedings, which will be published in the open access Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS), published by IOP Publishing. It will be a great opportunity to showcase the quality and range of research being presented at the conference as well as promote the event to a wider international audience.
A call for papers will open shortly after the final day of the conference (15 October). A charge of £42 will be made for each publication in the proceedings but this will provide open access and, therefore, the virtual proceedings itself will be free for all to read.
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 IOP Publishing Conference Series website.
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 edit 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.
