The ICFA Beam Dynamics Newsletter is intended as a channel for describing unsolved problems and highlighting important ongoing works, and not as substitute for journal articles and conference proceedings which usually describe completed work. It is published by the ICFA Beam Dynamics Panel, one of whose missions is to encourage international collaboration in beam dynamics.
Normally it is published every April, August and December. The deadlines are 15 March, 15 July and 15 November, respectively.
The categories of articles in the newsletter are the following:
The editors may request an article following a recommendation by panel members. However anyone who wishes to submit an article is strongly encouraged to contact any Beam Dynamics Panel member before starting to write.
Before starting to write, authors should download the latest model article file,
in Microsoft Word format, from
It will be much easier to guarantee acceptance of the article if the latest model is used and the instructions included in it are respected. These model files and instructions are expected to evolve with time so please make sure always to use the latest versions.
The final Microsoft Word file should be sent to one of the editor, preferably the issue editor, by email.
The editors regret that LaTeX files can no longer be accepted: a majority of contributors now prefer Word and we simply do not have the resources to make the conversions that would be needed. Contributions received in LaTeX will now be returned to the authors for re-formatting.
In cases where an article is composed entirely of straightforward prose (no equations, figures, tables, special symbols, Ö ) contributions received in the form of plain text files may be accepted at the discretion of the issue editor.
Each article should include the title, authorís name(s) and his/her/their e-mail
