Instructions for speakers

Dear Workshop Speaker,
     as an optimal mean to document the material presented at the workshop, as well as the work behind your presentation, we are planning to have a set of proceedings of the workshop published as a CERN report (Yellow Report).

WAMS is a workshop reporting on status as well as on-going work, and you should feel free to include in the manuscript both novel work as well as relevant material already published (e.g. previous journal papers). In this case, however, we require that you provide us a copyright release for the figures, tables, and in general material already appeared in previous publications.

Although there will be no formal review procedure, we still wish to make sure that the overall standard of the presentation, as well as the format of the paper, complies with the general guidelines for CERN publications. For this reason we would kindly ask you to adhere as close as practical to the guidelines reported at:

The length of the manuscript should not exceed 20 single-sided, typeset A4 pages.
Deadline for submission is at the workshop, on March 23rd. Please bring an electronic version of the file with you (CD, USB Flash Memory, diskette, PC-card) or mail it to the workshop secretariat (

Editing will be completely electronic. Nonetheless, to help our editing work, we would like you to bring one paper copy of the contribution that we will use as a master in case of any doubts on the formatting of the final publication.
Do not hesitate to contact me ( or the workshop secretariat in case of queries both on the content and on the format of your paper.

Kind regards,

Luca Bottura
