Review the list of suggested topics and the previous conference schedule to verify that your research aligns with the goals of this symposium.

Every author who physicaly presents their work at the conference may submit a manuscript detailing their presented research. After a technical review, those accepted for publication will appear in the archival journal Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A (NIMA). The manuscripts must comply with the journal's standards for full research articles, including novelty, relevance to the journal's readership, technical validity, formatting, and proper English.
