Manuscript Deadline: August 21, 2014
Authors are encouraged to submit their work to the AVS Journal of Vacuum Science & Technology B (JVST B).

Manuscript Guidelines
In preparing your article, you should follow the online instructions for contributors. Authors are encouraged to use the JVST templates. It is very IMPORTANT that authors indicate to which conference the paper is submitted. Online, you will have an opportunity to tell us that your paper is a part of a conference by choosing “Conference Paper” under the article type and then the conference name from a list.

Acceptable manuscript file types are MSWord, LaTeX, and PDF. For the initial submission/review process, a single PDF or MSWord file including the figures is sufficient, however submitting the separate article file (including any tables and a page listing the figure captions) and also the individual figure files is preferred.  The separate files are required further in the process so initial submission with these is recommended. 

Use of color in Figures is encouraged. Your FIGURES CAN APPEAR ONLINE IN COLOR FOR FREE. Prepare illustrations in the final published size, not oversized or undersized.
