General rules and guidelines

  • Deadline: the contributions must reach the conveners by 15 January 2018
  • Page guide (email the relevant coordinator for queries regarding your submission)
  • The conveners will send an email asking for statements of interest, coordinating the efforts and page length etc. Some topics will be collected in a single contribution with a contact person to be chosen by the conveners.
  • Authors list: Note that not all participants in Les Houches have to sign as authors; only those who contributed to the proceedings are to be listed as authors. The authors list can also include people who took part in the activities of the Workshop although they were not physically present in Les Houches.
  • Please do not submit a copy of your sub-contribution to the archives (unless it's in an expanded form for a paper of course!)

Instructions for the Proceedings

It is important that you stick by the following rules:

  • No macros are allowed.
  • Please use the template LaTeX file appended below.
  • Citations/References: You must use BibTeX. Please use the format given by INSPIRE, and do not change the entry after coying it from INSPIRE. For the references that are not in INSPIRE, fill out by hand the BibTeX entry according to the example given in sample.bib.
  • Naming and labelling: all the files attached to your contribution should be named appropriately: chose a nickname, e.g. higgsloop, and name your files accordingly: higgsloop_main.tex, higgsloop_fig1.pdf, higgsloop_bib.bib etc.
  • All the labels you are using for equations, figures etc. should also follow the same format, e.g. \label{higgsloop_label1}. You can imagine that otherwise the editors will run quickly into multidefined labels.
  • Figures: only use figures in the format accepted by pdflatex (.pdf, .png, .jpeg). Note that no postscript file (i.e. no .ps or .eps) will be supported. Each file should not be more than 100 kB. You should use the graphics package to include figures.
  • Please provide the conveners with a pdf copy of your full contribution (together of course with the sources that will be used by the conveners/editors). This will help make sure that the compilation is correct.

All these rules are important to be able to gather all the contributions in a single file that will be submitted to the arXiv.
