Instructions for Proceedings

Instructions for Proceedings 

Both oral and poster contributions to the 15th Pisa Meeting will be published in a special issue of Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A.  


The manuscripts must be prepared according to the rules by Elsevier; in particular, they should include some original content and must not have already been published elsewhere or expected to be published in a different journal. 

The maximum length of the contributions, including author list, figures, and references, is:  

  • four pages for oral contributions; 

  • two pages for poster contributions. 

(A page is intended in standard NIM double column format.) 


Formatting instructions 

Manuscripts should be typeset using the LaTeX system.  Authors are strongly encouraged to use the elsarticle.cls LaTeX class provided by Elsevier, which is available on CTAN and readily included in most LaTeX distributions. A zipped archive containing a complete template is available here. Elsevier Guide for Authors provides more detailed instructions.

The submission should include main the LaTeX source file, the graphics files for all the figures, as well as the compiled manuscript in pdf format.  While we previously indicated to only use the review option of the elsarticle class, we now kindly ask authors to typeset the document in both review


and final mode


and include both pdf files in the submission. Note that, while authors can independently opt for publishing Open Access, the Conference will not cover the associated cost.


Submission instructions 

Manuscripts will be submitted to the NIM A proceedings editorial manager. (You will have register as an author if you are using the editorial manager for the first time.) The basic submission steps are 

  • go to the editorial manager and click on the “author loginbutton; 

  • follow the “Submit New Manuscript” link; 

  • choose the appropriate “article type” for the Pisa Meeting (VSI:Pisameet2021) and follow the instructions on the following page. 

Note that, in order to finalize the submission, the system requires a cover letter be uploaded. A generic document will be sufficient, e.g.

Dear Editor,
