The proceedings will appear the the Open Access Journal of Physics: Conference Series. All papers published in IOP Conference Series are fully citable and upon publication will be free to download. The papers will be indexed in various databases (including Scopus, Compendex, Inspec, SPIRES, and Web of Science). In keeping with previous workshops in the series, the proceedings will also be issued in a bound copy available to all participants.

In order to promote a timely publication of these papers, we ask that speakers submit a draft of their proceedings by October 18, 2014. We expect that contributions for 30 minute presentations will be a maximum of 6 pages long (45 minute talks, 7 pages; 60 minute talks, 8 pages). All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the Local Organizing Committee members. Kent Paschke will be managing the review and submission process for the proceedings. Details on the submission process will be provided later — until then any works should be sent to Kent Paschke via email.

IOP Conference Series uses author-supplied PDFs for all online and print publication. Authors are asked to prepare their papers using Microsoft Word or LaTeX, according to the journal guidelines and templates, and then convert these files to PDF for submission. You can review author guidelines (and retrieve MS Word and LaTeX templates) here:
