Manuscripts for Proceedings

All authors of accepted contributions and invited speakers are asked to submit a 2-6 pages of camera-ready manuscript for proceedings by deadline described below. No distinction will be made between oral and poster presentations. The book of proceedings will be handed out at the registration desk (for residents of Japan, it will be delivered prior to the symposium).

There is no reviewing for the proceedings and the distribution of the book is only limited to participants of the symposium and members of the 141st Committee on Microbeam Analysis (the symposium sponsor). It is planed that an electronic version of the book will be available on the ALC'09 web site (details will be announced by e-mails to authors). Since the book is printed in black & whilte, color figures should be avoided as possible, or should be distinguishable without colors. The electronic version can treat colors.

Authors can also submit papers to a reviewed journal (see “Reviewed Journals” page).
