The 8th international conference in Highly Frustrated Magnetism (HFM 2016) will accept one article per participant to be published as the official proceedings in Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS). A selected number of papers, containing significant and original experimental, theoretical or simulation work will be chosen to appear in the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter (after some reformatting) and virtually linked to the meeting.

Unless instructed by the conference organising committee, please follow the instructions below to prepare a manuscript for JPCS.


Where to send your paper

Manuscripts, prepared according to the author guidelines, should be submitted to hfm2016@gmail.com by August 1st 2016.

Preparing your paper

IOP Conference Series uses author-supplied PDFs for all online and print publication. Authors are asked to prepare their papers using Microsoft Word or LaTeX, according to the journal guidelines and templates, and then convert these files to PDF. Full instructions on preparing your paper, along with templates, can be found on the IOP Conference Series website.


When preparing your paper please check that:


It is important to ensure that when you submit your paper, it is in its final form ready for publication, and has been thoroughly proofread. IOP do not copyedit papers and will not send out author proofs prior to publication. Please note: post-publication changes are not usually permitted, unless there are exceptional circumstances, so please ensure your paper has been checked for errors.

Important: please read before you submit a paper
