ISSW 2012 authors may also wish to consider submitting a paper for a special issue of Cold Regions Science and Technology (CRST). Papers submitted to CRST must be different from those published in the ISSW Proceedings and compared to the short ISSW paper, more precise language may be required. They typically contain expanded technical information, additional details of methods and a more complete description of results. These papers will undergo rigorous peer review. Guest editors include: Peter Gauer, Jordy Hendrikx, Bruce Jamieson, HP Marshall, Mohamed Naaim, Jürg Schweizer and Alec van Herwijnen.
The formatting guidelines are different, see this webpage for details. Submission deadline is 2 November 2012. All manuscripts should be submitted online through Elsevier Editorial System (EES), which can be accessed here.
Please make sure you select 'ISSW12_Anchorage' when you reach the "Article Type" step in the submission process.
All authors of accepted abstracts are required to submit a full paper of 2 - 7 pages whether they are accepted for an oral presentation or a poster. The increased flexibility on paper length should accommodate those who are doing modest poster presentations as well as those who prefer to publish an abbreviated paper in advance of submitting to a peer reviewed publication. Papers are not due until August 2012, and will be published in a Proceedings Volume distributed at the meeting. Preparation and paper submission instructions will be provided by email to accepted authors.
The display areas of our posters boards are 4 ft high (122 cm) by 8 feet (244 cm) wide which will allow plenty of room for your poster and for people to gather around your poster. The maximum dimensions of your poster should not exceed these dimensions or they will not fit on the display boards. If you have any additional needs, such as power supply for your poster presentation, please let the Poster Chair know via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) by no later than July 25, 2012.
NOTE: Providing power to the poster display area in the convention center is fairly expensive and difficult, so we prefer that posters presentations do not have power needs if at all possible.
If you require assistance or have submission questions please the email the abstract manager at email@example.com
