Paper submission for ICASP-4 has now closed. Thank you to all those who have submitted their papers. The review process has now started and we will contact you accordingly.
All submitted papers will be peer reviewed, and the accepted papers will be published in a special issue of the Institute of Physics: Material Science and Engineering. The journal offers open access to the publications which make the proceedings available to a wider readership.
The instructions to authors can be found at the IOP - Information for Authors page. Papers should not exceed 6 A4 pages and must be prepared using the IOP: MSE templates for papers (Microsoft Word and LaTeX available). To facilitate the editorial process, every effort should be made to follow closely the specifications described in the template.
The deadline for submission of the papers will be 11th August 2014. Due to the largely extended deadline the peer reviewing process will probably now be finished in October.
The plenary lectures will be published separately in Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A as a block of papers.
