Contributed Papers

In addition to invited survey papers, contributed papers (poster only) will be selected on the basis of a one-page abstract. The LateX templates required for the papers can be used for the submitted abstracts as well (see below).
Abstracts should be sent in pdf format, file name as NAME_Varenna10_abstr.pdf”, by June 18, 2010 to:
O. SAUTER, CRPP/EPFL, Station 13, PPB-Ecublens,
CH 1015 Lausanne, Switzerland

Proceedings

Proceedings are published in the book series “Theory of Fusion Plasmas” For the first  time, in 2010, papers will be published in a refereed journal with IOP. The journal will be Plasma Phys. Contr. Fusion (PPCF), for the main papers, and Journal of Physics Conference Series (JPCS) for the other papers.
The papers published in PPCF will follow the usual refereeing process of this journal and will be published as a cluster of papers related to the Varenna-Lausanne Theory of Fusion Plasmas 2010 Conference.
The papers published in JPCS will be refereed mainly by the scientific committee and participants of the conference, supervised by X. Garbet and O. Sauter, acting as Editors. The JPCS papers will have a header stating explicitly that the papers have been refereed. Naturally, the refereeing process will be lighter (typically one referee) than the PPCF publication. When submitting the paper, the author can propose a publication in PPCF or JPCS, however the final decision is under the responsibility of the scientific committee. Typically invited papers will be published in PPCF and contributed papers in JPCS.
Papers, invited (10-12 pages) and contributed (6-8 pages), have to follow the Latex guidelines and templates given in the following zip file: ioplatexguidelines.zip
The deadline for the paper is the week of the conference. Thus either you send the
paper before August 30, 2010, by email to Varenna-Lausanne”at”epfl.ch or you bring it to the registration desk during the conference.
