Wednesday, May 15th midnight AEST (UTC+10).
Authors will be able to check the status of their paper(s) by logging into their IPAC Author Account, or checking the dot board. Email notifications of the processing status will also be triggered to primary (submitting) authors as processing is completed.
For Oral Presentation:
PDF, PowerPoint or OpenOffice/LibreOffice of slides are used for the oral presentation (and associated video or animation files where appropriate in their native format).
Most authors can generate PDF files, however, the standard is far from uniform and often they are not acceptable for the JACoW database because:
Note that PDF files produced according to the JACoW recipe will resolve the problems listed above. We have prepared a workflow that enables us to process and convert author PDF files to JACoW acceptable ones.
Only files named according to the paper’s program code can be uploaded via the SPMS system. All files used to produce the contribution must be uploaded, for example, for paper MOXAA01, file names should be:
MOXAA01_talk.odp – the file to be used for the oral presentation
(uploaded as “Transparencies”, movies as “Talk movies”)
You may generate your PDF file using the new jacow.cls class file from the templates with pdfLaTeX, XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX. If you are using the US letter format, the following command can be used:
Additional help is available on the JACoW website in the left sidebar under ‘For authors → Information and help’. For papers with A4 format the source should start with the following lines
For LaTeX PDF generation the following commands are recommended:
Word 2010 allows you to produce a PDF file by using File → Save As → Save as type: PDF. Please make sure that the PDF file options (click “Options…”) are set as indicated in the picture below before saving the PDF (this has to be done each time the file is saved as a PDF file).
There is a second set of parameters that should be set (accessible via “Tools → Save Options…”).
This influences the font embedding in the source file. This eases the work for the editors when problems with unrecognized symbols occur with PS/PDF files and the source file has to be used.
Please tick the marked boxes as shown in the picture:
The set of JACoW templates ensures a unique formatting on paper formats used in countries with US letter and A4 sized paper.
There is one parameter in Word that should be unchecked, as it can conflict with the template setting. Use the following figure as a reference:
For IPAC’19 Pre-2010 versions of Microsoft Word will no longer be accepted.
Word 2008 on Mac allows you to produce a PDF file by using File → Print… → Save as PDF, or by typing Command-P. JACoW template fonts (such as Times New Roman) are automatically embedded in the PDF in Mac OS X:
Note that Word 2011 on Mac does not embed fonts properly in the output PDF when OpenType extensions are used, resulting in extremely large PDF output. OpenType extensions should be disabled under Preferences / Compatibility / Disable OpenType Font Formatting Features; this is done for you if you use the JACoW Mac templates. Please check the size of your PDF before uploading to the IPAC’19 SPMS – it should be less than 1.5 Mb.
You can generate your PDF file using the “Export as PDF” function of OpenOffice Writer accessible via the “File” option (below, left). Before clicking the “Export” button make sure that the PDF options for “Images” and “General” are set as shown below (right).
