The Proceedings of
SPIN2008 will be published by the American Institute of Physics (AIP)
in print and electronic versions that will be identical. The book will
be sent to all attendees who will also have free access to the on-line
proceedings for two years after publication.
The 6 x 9 inch version is the chosen format for SPIN2008 and we request
that the original Latex or MS Word file be submitted along with the pdf
All authors must complete and sign an AIP Copyright
Transfer agreement form. Many of you did so already at the conference,
but if you didn't then you can print out the form at the AIP website
and send it to us.
The page limits are as follows:
The DEADLINE for RECEIPT of MANUSCRIPTS is being extended to FEBURARY

A few points to check before submitting your manuscript:
- Are all markers, curves and labels distinguishable in black and white printing?
final printout will be 15% smaller than your PDF file. Are all your
texts and labels (in the figure) large enough to be readable?
you have scanned graphics, make sure they are scanned with a resolution
of 600dpi. Lower resolution may appear perfect on your screen but
produce poor printing quality.
