Step 1: Read general information for authors.

You should follow IOP's recommendation, and remember that :
  • Only one contributed paper per registered participant will be published in the proceedings.
  • Only papers presented at the Conference and approved by the referees will be accepted for publication.
  • Manuscript length should not exceed 6 pages for contributed papers and 10 pages for invited papers..

Step 2: Use the LateX template(preferentially) or a MSWORD file.

TeX and LaTeX
  • The text of articles may be submitted in any common variant of TeX including LaTeX 2e, LaTeX 2.09, REVTeX, AmSTeX, AmSLaTeX and plain TeX.
  • Guidelines and a class file for preparing articles using LaTeX 2e are available. The files are also available by anonymous ftp (please use your e-mail address as the password) from After logging on, change to the pub/journals directory (cd pub/journals). Separate files are available for Windows, Unix and Macintosh. The individual uncompressed files can be found in the directories /pub/journals/latex2e..
  • We have copies of the common package and class files, and these should not normally need to be sent. If, however, you are using uncommon, customized or personal files then these should be included along with your submission.

Microsoft Word
  • We are able to receive articles prepared using Microsoft Word for Windows or Macintosh.
  • Fonts used should be restricted to the standard font families (Times, Helvetica, Courier or Symbol) unless the fonts can be embedded within the file without infringing the font licensing agreement.
  • Use 'TrueType' fonts only. TrueType fonts are denoted by the symbol TT on the font list. Always embed your TrueType fonts. This is done by selecting 'File', 'Save As', 'Options and then clicking the 'Embed TrueType fonts' box.
  • If special symbols are needed (e.g. Greek characters, accented characters or mathematical symbols) these should be typed using the appropriate TrueType font. Do not use the Symbol facility on the 'Insert' menu as this often results in font conversion problems.
  • Equations must be prepared using Equation Editor, version 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 or MathType.

Step 3: Send electronically your file to the HFM2003 secretariat

Send to the Conference Secretariat ALL the following items, no later than July 31st, 2003:
  • An electronic version of the manuscript (text, figure captions, figures).
