PROCEEDINGS INSTRUCTIONS / INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS
Submission: Contributions must be submitted in triplicate by March 3/14/2000 at the registration desk. The manuscript must be in English of an adequate quality. One set of good quality original figures and a set of copies must be submitted with the manuscript. Please submit also an electronic version of your contribution on disk. Accepted papers will be published in Nuclear Instruments and Methods B. Page proofs will be sent to the contact author. Note that revisions in proof are not possible. It is the authors' responsibility that the accepted paper is correct in every respect.
Preparation of manuscripts: Manuscripts should be printed throughout with double line spacing and wide margins on numbered, single-column pages.
Title page(s) should contain the reference number as mentioned in the book of abstracts, the title, authors' names and affiliations, the abstract, PACS codes and keywords, and the text of any related footnotes. The author to whom proofs should be sent must be indicated with his/her full postal address, fax number, telephone number and/or e-mail address.
Tables should be printed on separate sheets at the end of the manuscript, be numbered and have a sufficiently detailed caption.
Figures should be numbered and their captions listed together at the end of the manuscript.
References in the text to other publications should be numbered consecutively, e.g. , [2,3], [4B6], etc., and listed together at the end of the text, e.g.
 B.C. Larson, C.W. White and B.R. Appleton, Appl. Phys. Lett. 32 (1978) 801.
 D. Tan, in: Defects in Semiconductors, ed. J. Narayan (North-Holland, Amsterdam, 1981) p. 163.
 M. Hautala, Proc. 7th Int. Conf. on Ion Beam Analysis, Berlin, Germany, 1985, Nucl. Instr. and Meth. B 15 (1986) 75.
Preparation of figures: Electronic files of figures can be submitted, but the publisher requires in all cases also a set of good quality hardcopies to produce the printed figures.
Line figures are preferably reduced to single-column width (~7.6 cm). Submitted drawings should be 1.5-3 times larger than the printed size; the height of letters and numbers should, after reduction, fall within the range 1.2-2.4 mm. Do not use too narrow pen widths for machine-plotted graphs. Shaded areas should be shown by means of cross-hatching or a matrix of dots, rather than a continuous grey wash.
Photographs should not already be screened (overprinted with the point matrix used by printers). The top side of a photograph should be marked if necessary.
Colour figures can be printed in colour when this is essential to the presentation. Authors will be charged for colour reproduction. Further information can be obtained from the publisher.
Length of the printed paper: Invited papers max. 7 printed pages
Contributed papers max. 5 printed pages
We recommend you to take a look at the journal, since this will give the best "feel" regarding the layout of the title page, figures and tables.
Electronic manuscripts: The publisher invites the submission of electronic manuscripts for NIM-A. It is the authors' responsibility that the electronic version exactly matches the paper manuscript. Further information can be obtained from the publisher.
Correspondence with the publisher: After acceptance for publication in the proceedings of an article, any correspondence should be addressed to: NIM-A Issue management, Elsevier Science B.V., P.O. Box 2759, 1000 CT Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Telephone: (+31-20) 4852793, Fax: (+31-20) 4852559, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Reprint order/copyright transfer forms and page proofs will be sent to the corresponding author. 25 reprints are provided free.
