A book of
abstracts will be made available to participants at the
symposium. Deadline of abstracts will be May 15, 2007.
Details can be viewed here.
Proceedings of the
symposium will be published triplicate:
(i) e-Journal of Surface Science
and Nanotechnology (e-JSSNT),
(ii) special issue
and Interface Analysis, and
(iii) the Activity
Report of the JSPS 141st Committee.
The relation of these
three proceedings is as follows. The proceedings (iii)
includes (i) and (ii), as well as those papers not
published in (i) or (ii). The papers which are included
in (i) can not be published in (ii), and vise versa. The
proceedings (iii) will include all the papers presented
at the ALC07.
The proceedings (iii)
will be printed with black and white and only limited
copies (less than 400) will be printed in order to
distribute within the participants as well as JSPS
committees. Color figures should be avoided as possible,
or if color figures are used, it should be understandable
when printed black and white.
e-Journal of Surface Science and Nanotechnology
(e-JSSNT): This is a non-paper version of scientific
journal published by the Surface Science Society of Japan
starting from May 2003. All authors of accepted
contributions and invited speakers are asked to submit a
paper. No distinction will be made between oral and
poster presentations. There are no page limitations and
use of color figures. All the papers including review
papers will be peer-reviewed, and will be published in
the e-JSSNT Web site soon after being accepted. Detailed
information of e-JSSNT can be found at http://www.sssj.org/ejssnt/ .
If you prefer publishing your paper in a traditional hard
copy journal to publishing in the electric journal, you
can choose publication in a special issue of Surface and
Interface Analysis (SIA). This option is offered only for
a paper with the maximum page length of four journal
pages for contributed and 6 pages for invited papers. You
are not allowed to submit your paper both in e-JSSNT and
SIA. Since the pages of the special issue are limited,
the Program Committee will select papers to be accepted
in SIA. The paper will be published according to a normal
publication procedure of SIA (see http://www.interscience.wiley.com/jpages/0142-2421/
). Only one
author of each paper in the special issue of SIA can
receive the free issue copy.
A limited edition of the symposium proceedings containing
all the papers both in e-JSSNT and SIA will be
distributed only to the participants of the symposium, as
JSPS-141 Activity Report. In this edition, all the color
figures will be printed monochromatically. If you do not
wish to submit a paper either in e-JSSNT or SIA, you are
asked to submit a manuscript only to JSPS-141 Activity
Report without reviewing. Therefore all the manuscript
should be carefully prepared because the papers in the
Activity Report will be printed as-received. Submission
to e-JSSNT or SIA is strongly recommended.
