All contributions to the XXXII Symposium on Physics in Collision will be included in the proceedings (poster, poster with oral presentation, plenary talks).
Update: The deadline: 15-st of December 2012.
You can download the tarball with instructions here. Tarball contains also specific LaTex class file pic2012.cls, which should be used to prepare the manuscript. If you experience difficulty using this template, please contact the PIC2012 local organizing committee at firstname.lastname@example.org, Pavol Strizenec is coordinating the PIC2012 proceedings.
Page limits for each contribution:
|talks 40-45 min.||14 pages|
|talks 20-30 min.||10 pages|
|posters with oral presentation||6 pages|
Upon acceptance at the arXiv server, the proceedings editors will pull the paper (and the source files if necessary) directly from the server and will send email notification to the submitter stating complete or incomplete submission. Submission to the arXiv server provides automated version control. If authors need to make changes, they can resubmit to the arXiv server, and a new version number is automatically issued, thus eliminating most version control problems. The ultimate goal is to see the full text of your paper on the arXiv.org server with an eprint number in the form "arch-ive/yymmnnn". Once you have this number, please send us (email@example.com) a mail with this number and with your name and title of the talk in subject.
→The PIC conference consists of a series of review talks covering the
most important current research in all fields of experimental high
energy physics. Speakers are expected to present a complete review
of a particular research topic rather than concentrating exclusively on
results from their own experiment or research project.
→When closely related topics are presented by different speakers, speakers are expected to coordinate presentations so as to maximize coverage and minimize duplication.
→This is not a topical conference and speakers should address physicists working in other HEP research areas. Therefore specialized jargon should be avoided and terminology should be clearly defined. Also, it is expected that speakers do not neglect the pedagogical aspect of a presentation -- they are chosen both for their expertise in the field and their ability to give high quality talks.
→Since these are review talks, it is impossible to present all research details. It is more important to clearly transmit the "big picture" than to rush through many technical details.
→It is appropriate and desirable to present a brief introduction to the research topic, mentioning past work and showing the importance of new results.
→Good clear summaries are useful at the end of the talk, with a discussion of the significance of the research for the broad field of high energy physics.
→The speakers are expected to submit a write-up of the presentation, to be published in the proceedings. When accepting the invitation to give a talk, the speakers should be aware that this includes the commitment to submit their manuscripts within the deadline to ensure timely publication.
