The proceedings will be published as a special issue of Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, Section A (NIMA).
All contributions were reviewed by two referees. Consider the referee comments and revise the paper. Submit the final version electronically, either in LaTeX2e format or in MS word format before September 5, 2005. Even if your paper was accepted without any modification, this process is required.
Page limit and color
The page limits are three pages for contributed and four pages for invited papers, respectively. Papers over the maximum page limits will be rejected because of the volume limit for the proceedings. We strongly recommend not to fill three (four for invited papers) full pages in the template. Please allow a margin of 1/4 page at the bottom in the last page. Artwork should not be in color.

We accept manuscripts prepared with the following LaTeX2e or MS Word
templates for NIMA of Elsevier.

How to prepare and submit your electronic files
We need the following three types of files for each paper.
Please prepare artwork files, which should be in black and white or gray scale according to the instruction below. The physical dimensions of the artwork should match the dimensions that appear in the journal.
- an electronic source file of your paper, either in LaTeX or MS Word
- separate artwork files with high resolution, either in EPS or TIFF
- a file of your reply to the referee's comments, either in plain text or MS Word
For vector graphics EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) files are the preferred format as long as they are provided in accordance with some common rules:
- when they contain bitmap images, the bitmaps are of a good resolution
- always include/embed fonts and only use the following in your artwork: Arial, Courier, Helvetica, Times, Symbol
- no data should be present outside the actual illustration area
- line weights should range from 0.35 pt to 1.5 pt
- when you are using layers make one layer before saving your image (Flatten Artwork)
Please use following filenames. Your paper ID can be obtained from here.
When supplying TIFF files please ensure that files are supplied at the correct resolution:
- line artwork = minimum of 1000dpi
- halftone artwork = mimimum of 300dpi
- combination artwork (line/tone) = minimum of 500dpi
Then, put all the files in a folder (or in a directory) named
- Body (LaTeX): paperID_yourFamilyName.tex (e.g., J422_Ohkubo.tex)
- Body (Word): paperID_yourFamilyName.doc (e.g., J422_Ohkubo.doc)
- Figures (EPS): paperID_yourFamilyName_figID.eps (e.g., J422_Ohkubo_fig1.eps)
- Figures (TIFF): paperID_yourFamilyName_figID.tif (e.g., J422_Ohkubo_fig1.tif)
- Response (text): paperID_yourFamilyName_resp.txt (e.g., J422_Ohkubo_resp.txt)
- Response (Word): paperID_yourFamilyName_resp.doc (e.g., J422_Ohkubo_resp.doc)
and make an archive of the folder. Here is an example to make a gzipped tar
archive in UNIX environment(including Mac OS X):
- paperID_yourFalimyName (e.g., J422_Ohkubo)
% mkdir J422_Ohkubo
% mv J422_Ohkubo.tex J422_Ohkubo_fig1.eps J422_Ohkubo_resp.txt J422_Ohkubo
% tar cvf J422_Ohkubo.tar J422_Ohkubo
% ls *tar
% gzip J422_Ohkubo.tar
% ls *gz
For other platforms, use a standard archive tool such as zip (Windows)
and StuffIt (Macintosh). If your archive is ready, please proceed to
the submission page. If you have
multiple papers, please prepare archives separately and submit them
one by one.
