This page gives recommendations for the preparation of papers for
the publication in the ICFA Instrumentation Bulletin (IIB).
After we receive the article we will post it on the WWW.
When 4-5 articles will be assembled on the Web, we
will publish the paper form as a SLAC-PUB preprint through a limited number of
copies sent only to institutions on the ICFA Instrumentation Bulletin
This necessitates changes in the way papers are submitted to the Editor.
We require the author to submit a brief abstract which will allow a quick
reference for a reader.
The format of the paper should be
paper form plus the LaTeX file with
postscript figures, or
paper form plus a 3.5'' diskette with text and figures in
- If neither of those formats is possible, please submit
the paper form only. The paper will then be scanned at SLAC.
The concept of publishing the bulletin on the World Wide Web
(WWW) allows us to include links to WWW pages prepared by
authors, provided that a "real" article will also be submitted
to the IIB.
We encourage authors to send the URL of a WWW page describing
their experimental work by E-mail to

To achieve a homogeneous layout of the bulletin
(and to avoid problems with
paper size and page size), we provide authors with a LaTeX style file and
template (in the future an MSWord template document will also be provided).
Please download and modify these files to write and submit your paper.
