Proceeding - STM'05


The proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Scanning Tunneling Microscopy/Spectroscopy and Related Techniques (STM'05) in conjunction with the 13th International Colloquium on Scanning Probe Microscopy (ICSPM13) will be published as a special issue of Japanese Journal of Applied Physics after the colloquium.

Extention of Submission Deadline

Since there still are many requests for deadline extension from participants, the publication committee of STM'05 has decided to continue receiving manuscripts until July 31.

The STM'05 committee is planning to support a part of the publication charge, although the amount is not determined at this moment.

Although the submission guideline is unchanged, now you are requested to send the manuscript and related items directly to the following address:

Japanese Journal of Applied Physics
5F Yushima Bldg., 2-31-22 Yushima, Bunkyo-ku,
Tokyo 113-0034, Japan.

On submission, please specify that your manuscript is for the special issue of scanning probe microscopy, and indicate your presentation number in the submission form as well as the cover page of the manuscript. (See below)
