Please note, abstract submission for PAC'11 is now closed.
All contributions to PAC'11 will be managed using the JACoW Scientific Program Management System (SPMS). All primary authors must own a profile and associated account within the JACoW Repository, prior to submitting an abstract. Use the link:
http://appora.fnal.gov/pls/pac11/profile.html and follow the instructions to check whether you already own a JACoW profile and associated account. Create them if necessary.
Once logged into the PAC'11 SPMS above, please check to confirm that the data in your JACoW profile is up to date, especially your e-mail address and affiliation. Do this by clicking on the link titled "Modify Your Profile".
Submit your abstract(s) by clicking on the Submit A New Abstract link and following the instructions below.
Remember in particular that if your work is accepted for presentation, the title, the authors, and the abstract, as you enter them, will be used in the program booklet, and later in the table of contents and author index of the proceedings to be published on JACoW. Please ensure that this data is correct at all stages.
Enter the title using initial capital letters. For example, "This Is The Paper Title In Initial Capital Letters".
The default presentation type is "Poster". You may request that your work be considered for a contributed oral presentation by changing this to "Contributed Oral Requested". The PAC'11 SPC will select contributions for contributed oral presentations at a meeting in late 2010.
Main and Sub Classification
All contributions are grouped by Main and Sub Classification. Authors are reminded that it is their responsibility to properly classify their abstracts to ensure that, if accepted for presentation, the paper is properly placed within the conference program. A description of the Scope of Classifications and Sub-Classifications is provided to help authors with this task.
Text should not exceed 1200 characters.
Since electronic submission over the web does not allow a simple, straight-forward system to enter Greek symbols, superscripts or subscripts, authors are requested to avoid using them in the abstract at this stage.
Footnotes should not exceed 200 characters. Each entered reference must be terminated by a carriage return.
Reference to funding agencies should not exceed 200 characters. This field should not be used to request sponsorship at the conference. No carriage returns are allowed.
Once the abstract submission is complete, hit "Submit".
Abstract Editing/Entry of Co-authors
After having "submitted" the abstract, a new window allows authors to print, edit, withdraw, and also to enter co-authors and designate their roles: primary/submitting authors (the persons normally contacted on matters concerning the program and the conference organization), presenter/speaker (the person who would present the invited oral/contributed oral/poster), or co-author.
If a paper is selected for oral presentation, the role "presenter" automatically becomes "speaker." The roles thus assigned are used to generate the sort order for co-authors in the table of contents. The names of primary/submitting authors appear first in the list of co-authors, followed in alphabetical order by co-authors with the same affiliation. Co-authors from other affiliations are grouped by affiliation, in alphabetical order.
It is important to remember to enter all co-authors. Failure to do so means they will be excluded from the author index in the conference program booklet and in the proceedings.
Notification of the acceptance of contributions for presentation at the Conference will be made to all primary/submitting authors early in February 2011.

On the next PAC'11 Author List page, enter the co-authors.
It is important to enter the names of all co-authors and to designate their roles. You must indicate who would present the work should it be selected for oral presentation, or who is the primary author if the primary author is not the submitting author or presenter.
Note that when you enter co-authors, the JACoW SPMS system will search to see whether a profile/account already exists for the co-author. If it does not, you will have to create a profile for them. Please be extremely careful with your data entry as this profile will be added to the JACoW Repository. Co-authors properly entered in the SPMS will thus appear in the list of co-authors, which will be included in the program booklet and in the author index of the proceedings.
