IOP Conferences

Abstract submission

Key dates:
Abstract deadline extended: 22 October (any abstracts after this date may only be considered for poster presentations)
Abstract notification: 2 November 2010

We are pleased to report that we have had a good response to CMMP10. We have over 230 abstracts submitted for the conference and with 23 symposia, 7 plenary lectures and 24 invited speakers and we are confident that the conference will be a great success.

The closing date for abstracts was 8 October. However we are still receiving abstracts so we will keep the abstract submission system open until the end of October. However, depending on the symposium, abstracts received after 22 October may only be consider for poster presentations.

Contributions for oral and poster presentations are requested in the symposia listed below. Abstracts of a maximum of 250 words should be submitted online by 22 October 2010. Any abstracts submitted after this date may only be considered for poster presentations. Authors with an accepted abstract will be invited to submit a full paper for the proceedings published in the Journal of Physics: Conference Series. Instructions for preparing a full paper will be sent to the corresponding author on acceptance of their abstract.
