Proceedings publication differs from regular journals in several aspects, which makes it important for all authors to follow our guidelines.

  • Most pure proceedings publications, including ours, use author-prepared PDF files for publication and production of printed copies.
  • Proceedings papers are submitted directly to the proceedings editors who manage the review process and collect the accepted articles.
  • The editors submit the proceedings articles and copyright release forms to AIP Publishing in a single batch rather than individually as each paper is ready.
  • The proceedings manuscripts are published as a single collection (volume) of AIP Conference Proceedings.

After the editors have collected sufficient accepted manuscripts, or as many manuscripts as authors are willing to write, they submit them to us in a single batch. We cannot publish any proceedings until the entire set of files meets the requirements of our publication and production systems.
