The format of the Proceedings of Groups St Andrews 2009 will be somewhat different from those of earlier Groups St Andrews conferences. It will principally contain survey articles, both those from the main speakers and those submitted by other conference participants. We welcome the submission of articles from all participants, surveying their area of expertise.
If you wish to submit an article that is not principally a survey article, please consult the conference organisers first.
The deadline for the submission of papers is 1st July 2009. Please submit them electronically to the conference e-mail address (gps2009mcs.st-and.ac.uk). Articles will be subjected to a rigorous refereeing process as if for a learned journal, and there will be restricted space available in the proceedings.
All papers must be prepared in LaTeX before submission. The editorial committee will not accept papers that are prepared in other formats. Two input files are required for preparation of articles:
The second of these is slightly altered from previous years, but is used in the same way as the previous version. Both files should be placed where LaTeX can find them, the easiest option being to place them in the same directory as your document file.
Since there is no way to tell (in the event that an article is accepted for publication) on which page of the Proceedings it will start, you will need to set the starting page as Page 1. This will be adjusted by the editors at the final stage of production of the proceedings.
Your submitted LaTeX file should have the following form:
[INSERT PERSONAL COMMANDS, IF ANY]
[THE TEXT OF YOUR DOCUMENT]
A simplified sample document is provided giving illustrations of how to use the above two input files. Once processed, it would produce this PDF file.
Please contact the conference organisers, using the conference e-mail address, if you have any questions concerning the preparation of articles for submission.
