Paper Preparation & Submission

All of the abstracts contributions received for the PCaPAC 2018 conference will be accepted in either contribution oral or poster.

The successful processing of all contributions during the conference depends heavily on the collaboration of all authors. It is very important that the contributions are submitted ahead of the conference such that the papers can be processed by the editorial team and any problems can be analyzed and then discussed with authors at the conference.


All contributions to PCaPAC 2018 are managed under the JACoW Scientific Program Management System (SPMS). Click here to access the JACoW SPMS for PCaPAC 2018.
The deadline is Wednesday, October 11th, 2018 at 11:59 AM Taipei Time Zone (CST) [UTC/GMT +8 hours].


Papers for poster presentation may be up to 3 pages long (+1 courtesy page); papers for contributed oral presentations may be up to 5 pages. If contributions contain numerous references, these may be carried over to an extra page.

Authors are advised to use the templates, and in case of difficulties, they should consult the JACoW electronic publication help pages. The templates contain styles which, when applied, will automatically ensure correct typesetting and layout. Use the JACoW Styles and Macros pull-down in the MS Word toolbar. Authors are strongly advised to use the template corresponding to the correct version of MS Word and not to transport the document across different platforms (e.g., Mac <-> PC or across different versions of MS Word on the same platform).

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.

The Scientific Programme Committee reserves the right to refuse papers 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.

You can find complete guidelines in the JACoW website.

Submission of electronic files

All contributors shall submit:
• Source file: MS Word, Latex, or OpenDocument 
• PDF of source file 
• Figure files: eps, tif, jpg, png or gif

Only files named according to the paper's programme code can be uploaded via the system. ALL files used to produce the contribution must be uploaded, for example, for paper TUAA01, which has two figures, file names should be: 
• TUAA01.tex (or .docx, .odf, etc) , corresponding to the source file 
• TUAA01.pdf , corresponding to the pdf of source file 
• TUAA01f1.eps (or .png, .tif, .jpg, …) , corresponding to Figure 1. 
• TUAA01f2.eps (or .png, .tif, .jpg, …) , corresponding to Figure 2.

Once all files are ready for submission, login to your PCaPAC2018 Author Accounts and proceed to the submission.

Please make sure that the paper title and co-authors on the paper are identical to the paper title and co-authors entered into the SPMS. If this is not the case, click on the links "edit" or "authors" and update. SPMS data will be used for the production of the table of contents and author index of the proceedings.

Papers will undergo processing by the technical editors and authors will be able to check the result by logging into their PCaPAC2018 Accounts. E-mail notifications of the processing status will also be triggered to primary (submitting) authors as processing is completed. During the conference an electronic display will show the status of your paper.
