The Symposium proceedings will be published by the IAU publisher, Cambridge University Press. The proceedings will be published both electronically and in print, and both a hardcopy and online access to the proceedings are included in the proceedings cost. This cost is included in the registration fee of the symposium. Only material presented in person at the meeting will be included in the proceedings.

The proceedings must be published within six months of the symposium. Given the three months lead time required by the publishers, and the time required for editing, we request that all manuscripts be submitted by 5 July 2013. We will not accept any delay.

The style files and sample papers necessary for authors can be found here. Instructions are detailed in the “readme_proceedings.pdf” file.

All authors are required to complete and return an IAU Copyright Form, either electronically or in hardcopy. We will have the IAU Copyright Forms available during the meeting. The editors are Brenda Matthews (Chief Editor) and James Graham.

Please email your LaTeX file, figures (if any), and individually compiled PDF contribution to as attachments with the subject line “Proceedings FamilyName.FirstInitial”. You should name your files familyname.tex, familyname.pdf,, etc to facilitate the task of the editors.

We note that colour figures will appear in colour at no charge in the electronic version of the proceedings only. For colour figures in the printed proceedings, the publisher will charge the authors £500 per page. Authors who are not prepared to cover this sum should ensure that their figures reproduce properly in black-and-white.

The page limits for the proceedings are indicated below. The editors may add one page to each oral contribution for questions and answers during the editing process. In this case authors will be consulted in due time after receipt of the manuscripts and preliminary editorial work.
