Your contribution must be set in the PoS style and uploaded in the form of a pdf file as specified in the instructions available at https://pos.sissa.it/cgi-bin/reader/info.cgi?p=authors

As PoS authors, you are requested to submit a PDF file, and are free to produce this in your favourite way. Please note though that the paper format must be A4 and not US letter, so that the green PoS logo on the title page does not appear partly cut off.

When you login to your Author pages on PoS you will find a link "Workarea". By clicking there and then on the link "template files and instructions" you will download a ZIP file which contains the following:

1. Instructions (pdf),

2. The word processing template (PoStemplate.odt; software available at, for instance, http://www.openoffice.org/)

3. The LaTeX class file (PoS.cls) with the PoS logo (PoSlogo.ps or PoSlogo.png)

For LaTeX users: unzip the file, save the class and the logo in your working directory, then use the skeleton file to create your contribution.

In order to make your co-authors appear on the webpage of the proceedings, you need to click on the WORKAREA link, submit your contribution and, while your contribution is in the 'open' status, use the "ADD CO-AUTHORS" tool. If they have not been previously registered to the PoS database you will not be able to select them from the list of registered users. In that case, please contact the PoS Editorial Office and send all the information needed to register them (firstname, lastname, e-mail address and affiliation).

The deadline for submission has been set to June 30th, 2018.

Recommend length (this will not be enforced - shorter/longer is fine):
With the title page, 9 pages (invited), 6 pages (afternoon), 4 pages (YSF).
