ICAME 2015 Conference Proceedings

Breaking News: Submission deadline extended to 30 September 2015

(details below)


The Conference proceedings will be published as a regular volume of the journal Hyperfine Interactions (edited by Springer). Invited talks as well as oral and poster presentations will be included in the conference proceedings. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed according to standard international procedures before being accepted for publication in the conference proceedings.


The procedure for submitting manuscripts is the essentially same as for the previous ICAME 2013 conference (Opatija, Croatia).  It is important to notice that, just like in ICAME 2013, there is no a priori page limit.  Authors are free to use as many pages as necessary.  Referees might object to manuscripts which are unnecessarily long.

Submissions to Hyperfine Interactions take place via an online submission system.  The website for online submission to Hyperfine Interactions is: http://www.editorialmanager.com/hype . You can login to the submission system using the "Author Login" button after registering yourself with the "Register Now" button, if you are accessing this system for the first time.  You will be asked to indicate which conference your submission is intended for. Please select ”ICAME2015”.

A wide range of submission file formats for text and illustration is supported.  The most common submission file format is a Word-file. You can get more detailed author instructions from the following URL: http://www.springer.com/physics/particle+and+nuclear+physics/journal/10751


Deadline for the electronic submission of manuscripts has been extended to 30 September 2015. Please send a short note the proceedings editor Guido Langouche at  hyperfine.interactions@fys.kuleuven.be if you are going to make use of this extension, i.e., if you will submit later than the original deadline.

Open Access

With the consent of Springer, publisher of Hyperfine Interactions, the final accepted version of all peer reviewed and accepted conference manuscripts will be published on the website of the Mössbauer Effect Data Center [http://www.medc.dicp.ac.cn] together with the conference manuscripts of the most recent ICAME, ISIAME and LACAME conferences. It is the purpose to use this database also as a repository for future Mössbauer conference proceedings in order to facilitate access for the scientific community.

All these conference manuscripts can be downloaded from this website free of charge.

To assist correct citation of the conference articles clear indications are given of the corresponding Hyperfine Interactions issues and page numbers.

Please notice that this free open access offered to the conference participants and their community is different from the open access offered to the authors, against payment, by Springer upon publication of their manuscript. Authors should not feel obliged to buy this.

About the Hyperfine Interactions journal

Hyperfine Interactions was created in 1975 as a scientific journal with a strict peer review procedure, with the main purpose to publish conference proceedings in the border region between nuclear physics, atomic physics and solid state physics.  

Articles published in Hyperfine Interactions are listed in citation databases such as Web of Science, Google Scholar and Scopus.  In 2008 Web of Science split their journals database into two: the traditional journals part and a new proceedings part and they moved all journals they decided to be proceedings journals, including Hyperfine Interactions, into that new database.  Web of Science only publishes impact indices for journals in their journals database, not for journals in the proceedings database, although the impact factor of Hyperfine Interactions can still be calculated – it is around 0,5 in recent years.

Articles published in Hyperfine Interactions are fully indexed by search and indexing services like Web of Science, Google and Scopus and citations to articles in Hyperfine Interactions are still measured and included as they had been before.  Search engines, like Google Scholar, list citation reports for Hyperfine Interactions articles free of charge, while Web of Science only gives this information to those who have a subscription to their proceedings index.
