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 proceedings will be published by electronic version (in USB memory) and will be handed out at the registration desk.

Authors submitting no proceedings manuscripts
will be judged to have withdrawn their papers.

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).

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