Paper Preparation Guidelines
All work presented at HIAT2018 will be included in the conference proceedings, which will be published at the JACoW website shortly after the conference.
Authors are reminded that, since no contributions are accepted for publication only, any paper accepted for presentation, which is not presented by one of the authors at the conference, will be excluded from the proceedings.
Furthermore, the International Advisory Committee reserves the right to refuse papers for publication that have not been properly presented in the poster sessions. Manuscripts of contributions to the proceedings (or enlargements of them) are not considered as posters, and work presented in this way will not be accepted for publication.
All contributions must be uploaded via SPMS according to the Paper Upload Guidelines at this website later.
JACoW Templates
Contributions to the proceedings must be written in English and prepared using the JACoW templates, which have recently been updated and contain more detailed information to help authors submit their work for publication.
Authors are kindly reminded to use English characters and symbols input format/platform in electronic manuscript. Any characters or symbols made by Chinese input format will result in font mistakes and failing in editing.

The JACoW Templates have recently been updated and they contain more
detailed information to help authors submit their work for publication. Authors
are invited to pay careful attention to the formatting of references and
citations. Please kindly take note the Changelog of latest changes in templates
shows in the webpage.


Ensure that the template downloaded corresponds to the version of software
you are using. Do not transport documents across different platforms e.g. MAC <-> PC or across different versions of Word on the same platform. The templates contain styles which, when applied, will automatically ensure correct typesetting and layout.
Length of Contributions

Invited oral presentations may be up to 5 pages. Papers for both contributed oral
and poster presentations may be up to 3 pages long. If contributions contain
numerous references, these may be carried over to an extra page.

General Layout

See the JACoW templates for a typical implementation of the requirements.
Manuscripts should be prepared for the appropriate paper size and have:

US letter size (8.5 in x 11.0 in; 21.6 cm x 27.9 cm) or A4 (8.27 in x 11.69 in; 21.0
cm x 29.7 cm)
Single spaced text in two columns of 3.25 in (82.5 mm) with 0.2 in (5.3 mm)
separation.
The text located within the margins specified as follows to facilitate electronic
processing of the PostScript file.

The margins should be as follows:
Margin A4 Paper US Letter Paper
Top  37 mm (1.46 in)  0.75 in (19 mm)
Bottom 19 mm (0.75 in)  0.75 in (19 mm)
Left  20 mm (0.79 in) 0.79 in (20 mm)
Right  20 mm (0.79 in)  1.02 in (26 mm)
Authors should use only Times or Times New Roman (in roman, bold or italic) and Symbol fonts.All contributions should use 10pt fonts for the normal text.
Title
The title should use 14 pt bold uppercase letters (except for instances such as GeV, Nb, etc.) and be centred on the page.

The names of authors, their organizations/affiliations and postal addresses should be grouped by affiliation and listed in 12 pt upper- and lowercase letters.


The name of the submitting or primary author should be first,followed by the co-authors, alphabetically by affiliation. Where authors have multiple affiliations, the secondary affiliation may be indicated with a superscript.
Section Headings

Section headings should not be numbered. They should use 12 pt bold
uppercase letters and be centred in the column. All section headings should
appear directly above the text - there should never be a column break between
a heading and the following paragraph.

Subsection Headings

Subsection headings should not be numbered. They should use 12 pt italic
letters and be left aligned in the column. Subsection headings use Title Case
(or Initial Caps) and should appear directly above the text--there should never
be a column break between a subheading and the following paragraph.

Third-level Headings

These should use 10 pt bold letters and be run into the paragraph text. In LaTeX
they are created with LaTeX’s \subsubsection command. In the Word templates
authors must bold the heading text themselves. This heading should be used
sparingly. See Table 2 for its style details.

Paragraph Text

Paragraphs should use 10 pt font and be justified (touch each side) in the
column. The beginning of each paragraph should be indented approximately
0.33 cm (0.13 in). The last line of a paragraph should not be printed by itself at
the beginning of a column nor should the first line of a paragraph be printed by
itself at the end of a column.

References

All bibliographical and web references should be numbered and listed at the
end of the paper in a section called “References.” When citing a reference in
the text, place the corresponding reference number in square brackets, e.g., [3].
A URL may be included as part of a reference,but its hyperlink should NOT be
added
. See the template and Formatting Citations for typical examples.

Style Font Space Before  Space After
PAPER TITLE  14 pt UPPERCASE EXCEPT FOR REQUIRED lowercase letters Bold  0 pt 3 pt
Author List  12pt UPPER- and lowercase  9 pt  12 pt
Abstract Title 12pt Initial Caps Italic  0pt 3 pt
SECTION HEADING  12pt UPPERCASE Bold  9 pt  3 pt
Subsection Heading 12pt Initial Caps Italic  6 pt  3 pt
Third-level Heading  10pt Initial Caps Bold  6 pt  0 pt
Figure Caption 10 pt  3 pt  ≥3 pt
Table Caption  10 pt  ≥3 pt  3 pt
Equation  10 pt base font 12 pt 12 pt
References1 when ≤ 9  9 pt, justified with 0.52 cm (0.2 in) hanging indent  0 pt  3 pt

The flexibility to optimize the spacing after/before figure/table captions and
equations is highlighted. Word/OpenDocument users are reminded that when
a section, subsection or table heading is at the top of a column, then the before-
space should be removed, i.e., 0 pt.

Paper Preparation Checklist

Use only Times or Times New Roman (standard, bold or italic) and Symbol
fonts for text 10 pt minimum except references, which should be 9 pt.
Figures should use Times or Times New Roman (standard, bold or italic)
and Symbol fonts when possible 6 pt minimum.
Check that citations to references appear in sequential order and that all
references are cited.

Check that the PDF file prints correctly.
Check that there are no page numbers.
Check that the margins on the printed version are within ±1 mm of the
specifications.

LaTeX users can check their margins by invoking the boxit option.

Common Oversights

Please check your paper against this list of common oversights before
uploading your paper, paying particular attention to the formatting of Figures,
Tables and References.

Title: IS THE TITLE IN UPPERCASE?: The title should use 14 pt bold
UPPERCASE letters (except for units, e.g., GeV) and centered on the page.
Authors: The names of authors, their organizations/affiliations, and mailing
addresses should be in 12 pt uppercase and lowercase letters. When there is more than one author, the submitting author should be first, followed by the co-authors. Co-authors should be grouped by affiliation and then be listed alphabetically. Primary authors are kindly reminded that it is their responsibility to check the accuracy of the title and co-authors entered in the SPMS abstract. There should be an exact match to those appearing in the paper. This is required to ensure the proper indexing of authors to papers in the published Proceedings

Section Headings: Section headings should NOT be numbered. Use 12 pt
bold UPPERCASE, Centered in the column

Subsection Headings: Use 12 pt italic lowercase and uppercase. The initial
letters of significant words are capitalized, and the heading is left aligned in the column.
Figures: Figure captions should be placed below the figure and centered if on one line, but justified if spanning two or more lines. See the JACoW template and in particular:

Figure 1: A one line figure caption.

Figure 2: A figure caption that takes two lines or more is justified.
Note the colon ":" after the figure number and the period "." at the
end of the caption.

When referring to a figure from within the text, the convention is to
use the abbreviated form, i.e., Fig. 1, unless the reference to the
figure is at the start of the sentence: Figure 1 shows a schematic
view of..., ... as shown in Fig. 1.

Tables: Table headings should be placed above the table and centered if on
one line, but justified if spanning two or more lines:

Table 1: Table Heading (if on one line is centered)
Table 1: A Particularly Long Table Heading Spanning Two Lines (is
justified)

Note the colon ":" after the table number, initial letters of the table
heading are capitalized, and the absence of a period at the end of
the caption. It is also acknowledged, however, that in some
instances authors find it necessary to replace the table heading with
an actual sentence. In such a case, the formatting rules given for
figure captions are best followed. The table caption should, however,
always be placed above the table

When referring to a table from within the text, the convention here is
NOT to abbreviate, i.e., Table 1

Equations: If a displayed equation requires a number, it should be placed
flush with the right margin of the column.
References: References are written in 9 pt.

SPMS data will be used for the production of the table of contents and author index of the proceedings.Failure to enter all co-authors means they will beomitted from the author index.
