NATO Advanced Research Workshop
Metamaterials for Secure Information and Communication Technologies

7-10 May, 2008, Marrakesh - Morocco



Keynote papers and a selection of invited and contributed papers will be published by Springer as part of the NATO Science series books. The potential authors will be contacted by the Editor. Please note that all selected papers will still be subject to peer-review.

Information on paper preparation (Camera Ready)

Papers should comprise 16 to 18 pages for keynote papers (even number) or 10 to 12 pages (even number) for invited and contributed papers (page size is "book size", not A4/Letter size). If you exceed this limit, we may not be able to accommodate your paper in the published proceedings.

In order for the submitted papers to be considered for acceptance to the book, authors must edit their papers to comply with the META08 Springer template. Note that the figures will be printed in black & white (unless you accept to pay several hundred Euros per page). If you are not opting for color figures, please make sure that the figures reproduce well in b/w printing. Furthermore, as Springer may later ask you to provide digital figures as separate files, please keep your figures available as .tif or .eps files.
