As in the past, the conference organisers have arranged that the official refereed proceedings of the conference will be published in Physica B: Condensed Matter (Elsevier).

Please take note that papers from invited speakers can be up to 6 pages, otherwise up to 4 pages for delegates. 

Please make use of the following guide for authors, on the Elsevier website:  

Once your paper has been finalised:
  • Submit your paper on the journal submission page at: http://ees.elsevier.com/physb/default.asp
  • To ensure that your manuscript is correctly identified for inclusion into the special issue, it is important that the submitting author select “SI: SACPM 2015” when they reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process. If you do not do this, your paper will be handled like any other paper submitted to Physica B, and will not appear in the Proceedings’ special issue. 
Please note that the final submission of papers is 8 May 2015.
