ONLINE SUBMISSION

A limited number of original papers are accepted for presentation. The paper has to be submitted as an Adobe PDF-file at the ISOM website (http://www.isom.jp/). ISOM web submission service does not accept PDF files including 2-byte characters (for example, Japanese, Chinese and Korean characters). The local fonts should be removed from the text body and figures before submission. The 2-page summary preparation, 35-word abstract instruction, and submission procedures can be obtained at the ISOM website. Prior to paper submission, a delegated author has to fill in submission information including the 35-word abstract on the paper submission form at the website, and then a 2-page PDF summary should be uploaded via the website.

Mode of Presentation

In addition to oral presentation, which typically consists of a fifteen-minute presentation and five-minute discussion, there will be a poster session in the symposium. The abstract and summary of poster papers will be published in the same fashion as those of oral papers.

Moreover, all authors can apply for “Demo Presentation” (presentation with technical demonstration) in addition to ordinary oral or poster presentation. ISOM will provide the environment for Demo Presentation and support the transportation fee of demo equipment. Details will be announced after the paper acceptance notice.

Online Abstracts and Summaries Submission Deadline: June 11, 2018

Questions to the Technical Program Committee should be addressed to the ISOM secretariat (secretary@isom.jp). The presentation schedule will be determined after the Technical Program Committee has reviewed the papers. Authors will be notified by the beginning of July, 2018 whether their papers are accepted. The notification e-mail will be sent to the corresponding author of the web-submission.

All authors who receive notification of their paper’s acceptance by the ISOM Technical Program Committee are requested to complete the copyright transfer form and promptly return it to the ISOM secretariat by e-mail, fax or postal mail.

ISOM Awards

The Best Paper Award, the Special Award, and the Program Chair Award will be conferred to the excellent presentations as the ISOM prizes. ISOM welcomes student presentations from universities. The Student Award is also prepared.

PUBLICATION OF SYMPOSIUM PAPERS

Online Technical Digest will be available at the symposium including invited papers, accepted contributed papers, and limited numbers of post deadline papers. The conference papers will be published in September 2019 as a special issue of the Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (JJAP), which is the English-language journal of the Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP). The authors who will have, by themselves, presented papers at ISOM’18 will be allowed to submit their papers for publication in this special issue. The instructions for preparation of manuscript and the agreement form for the special issue will appear on the ISOM website after the conference. Submitted papers will be reviewed based on the JJAP standard.
