Publication Instructions for Quark Matter 2001 Speakers

Dear Quark Matter 2001 Speakers:

Thank you for presenting a plenary or contributed talk at the Quark Matter 2001 Conference.

To document the exciting results presented at the meeting we have contracted with Elsevier, North Holland to prepare the proceedings of the meeting.

Similar to previous Quark Matter conferences, the page limit for plenary talks of 35 minutes and greater in duration has been set at ten pages. The page limit for contributed talks has been set at four pages.

Detailed instructions on preparing your manuscript will be placed on the QM2001 web site just after the start of the new year, at which time you will be notified. However, for those who wish to get started now, instructions may also be found at:

Specifically, the part you need to reference from this page is under the headers, Preparing CRC articles with LaTeX, and following that, One-column articles, which are located about half way down the page. At this location there are several downloadable files, depending upon which platform you are using.

Note that Latex 2e is required for the preparation of your manuscript, and that you will be preparing a "one-column" article.

A consistent difficulty with the proceedings of Quark Matter conferences in the past has been the time it takes for the published proceedings to reach the community. To try to improve on the turn-around time for publishing the proceedings, we have negotiated a minimal time for publication, once the materials have been received by the Publisher. To take maximum advantage of that arrangement we ask that you submit your contribution not later than March 31, 2001. Finished manuscripts should be sent to Elizabeth Mogavero at Brookhaven National Laboratory (, who will also be the contact person for questions you may have regarding the preparation of your manuscript.

Thank you again for participating in the Quark Matter 2001 Conference. We look forward to a stimulating meeting with many new and interesting results.

For the QM2001 Organizers and the Editorial Board for the QM2001 Proceedings
