International Conference CODEF III

"Colloidal Dispersions in External Fields"


Special JPCM issue of the CODEF III conference

The proceedings of the CODEF III conference will be published as a special issue of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter .
More information about the journal can be found on the web at .
We would like to ask all invited speakers to turn in a manuscript, so that the special issue reflects the full character of the meeting.

Important: Only the invited talks will be published in the special JPCM issue!

The DEADLINE for submission of manuscript for the special JPCM issue is the beginning of the conference,
Tuesday, March 20th, 2012.

Further instructions for preparing your manuscript for the special JPCM issue
  • Please prepare your manuscript following the general submission rules of the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter which can be found on the web
    IOP accepts almost any format and there are various submission channels (web, email, hardcopies).
    The address for submitting manuscripts is:
    Publishing Administrator
    Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter
    Institute of Physics Publishing
    Dirac House, Temple Back
    Bristol, BS1 6BE
    Contact e-mail:
    Contact telephone: +44 (0) 117 929 7481
    Contact fax: +44 (0) 117 929 4318
    In submitting please clearly state that your article is submitted for the CODEF III special JPCM issue
    Please submit in parallel your manuscript to H. Löwen (
    Of course you can also submit your manuscript online (via JPCM homepage, submit a new article, article type: special issue).
  • The length of your article should lie between a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 20 journal pages providing enough flexibility to prepare shorter and larger articles (for guidance: one page of double-space typescript or one figure is approx. half a printed page).
  • Your article will be refereed. The special issue should be used as a reference for recent progress in colloids in external fields.
    Therefore, please avoid pure repetition of material that is already published and include novel results. Pure reviews will be rejected.
  • You are invited and encouraged to publish with your collaborators in case you feel this is necessary.
  • The issue will presumably appear after completion of the refereeing process in fall 2012.
