Call for Abstracts

Abstracts

Abstract submission is closed.

All accepted abstracts will be allocated to either oral or poster presentations (the authors will be informed by the April 8, 2014). Besides the invited lectures proposed by the Committee, additional invited talks might be selected among the contributed abstracts.

All contributions should be presented during the conference by a registered presenting author.

Poster Presentations

Poster sessions will be held together with the industrial exhibition.

Included in the poster sessions will be student poster competitions for full-time undergraduate and graduate students. Cash awards will be presented to the winners of these competitions during the conference banquet.

The maximum size of the poster is 90 cm (width) x 105 cm (lenght).

Call for Papers

The IBA 2015 conference will be published as a volume of the journal “Nuclear Instruments and Methods B: Beam Interactions with Materials and Atoms”. All submitted papers must be clearly written in excellent English and contain only original work, which has not been published by or is currently under review for any other journal or conference.

A detailed submission guideline is available as "Guide to Authors".

Page limits are defined as following: (i) plenary/invited talks - 6 printed journal pages and (ii) contributed oral and poster presentations - 4 printed journal pages. A lower limit of 3 printed pages applied.

Length estimation

To ensure that you are within the appropriate page limits, fill out the Manuscript Length Estimate Form and include it in your submission. The form uses the following formula:

  • Number of characters (including title, abstract, captions and references, including spaces) = A
  • Number of 1-column tables or figures = B
  • Number of 2-column tables or figures = C

Each independent figure including Fig.1a, Fig.1b, Fig.1c must be counted separately.

Estimated number of printed journal pages = (A+1300*B+5000*C)/8500

Only contributions that were effectively presented at the conference by one of the authors will be considered.

All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted through Elsevier Editorial System (EES). EES will open on May 15. The authors must select as “SI: Ion Beam Analysis 2015” when they reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process.

All papers will be reviewed to the same standards as for regular NIMB papers. Requests for additional information should be addressed to the guest editors.
