The Proceedings will be published as a regular issue of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter (JPCM). Submitted papers are refereed to the usual standards of quality for JPCM, taking account of their conference nature.
Each registered participant can submit only one paper. Papers not presented at the conference either in oral or poster session will not be published in the Proceedings.
The deadline for submission is 30 June 2006 for contributed papers and 31 July 2006 for invited papers.

Authors are requested to send the pdf files of their manuscripts for peer review by e-mail to or printed papers by post or fax to the editorial office:
Dr. Z. Hiroi,
Submission of a paper implies that it has not been published previously, that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that if accepted it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the publisher.
After the notification of acceptance, authors are requested to submit the final version of their manuscripts to JPCM via the web site:
In the second page for submission, please select Article type as 'Symposium paper' and write 'HFM2006' in the Comments box, which are necessary so the paper is not mistaken for a new submission.
Manuscripts must be prepared following the Guideline for authors for an IOP journal. Information may be found at:
Length of manuscripts
The maximum length of manuscripts is 6 printed pages for a contributed paper and 10 pages for an invited paper.
Use of colour in the online version of their articles is free and authors are strongly encouraged to make good use of colour. However, please remember that the print version is available only in the black/white format. Thus, authors should be careful to prepare their colour figures so as not to lose detail or clarity on conversion to greyscale images for print. In particular, colours such as yellow, light greens and light blues generally reproduce poorly and may become indistinguishable in black and white print. Please remember that colour figures from the web may also be printed by readers on a black and white printer.
