The duration of the talk may be subject to change in accordance with a conference schedule.

Poster Presentation

Poster panels and tacks will be provided. Panels have a width of 90 cm and a height of 210 cm. A0 size (W 841 mm × H 1189 mm) is recommended for the poster presentation. The panel surface is like a thick-piled carpet, and thus thumbtacks are unavailable. Hook-and-loop fasteners and double-sided tapes will be provided. The poster numbers will be shown on the top of each poster panel.

Proceedings

Selected papers presented at the conference will be published as regular papers, not as conference proceedings papers, in the journal in Taylor & Francis group "High Pressure Research (HPR)". They shall be submitted online directly to the Journal. If you intend to submit a full original paper, this needs special notice upon abstract submission to us, a regular refereeing process applies, and the strict deadline of submission must be respected to guarantee publication with the shortest delay after the conference.

Manuscript Submission Deadline: October 31, 2018

Only original papers of high quality, which are well written with sufficient novel material, will be considered for publication. Overviews of work done in the past, progress reports, and work published already in a similar form will not be considered. All submitted papers will be reviewed rigorously by two referees. The final decision on the acceptability of any submitted article will be made by the Editors. Manuscripts for HPBB2018 should be prepared according to the instructions for authors of the journal and must be submitted through the HPR online submission web page.

HPR Submission Guidelines
