1. Introduction

A contract has been signed with Wiley-Interscience for the publication of a Workshop-based book, to be edited by Serge Luryi, Jimmy Xu, and Alex Zaslavsky. The contract stipulates a very tight schedule, with a final camera-ready manuscript of 400-500 pages to be submitted to Wiley by Oct. 15, 1998.

We hope to produce a book that will have a broader impact and audience than a typical conference proceedings volume. Consequently, the participants are encouraged not to restrict their manuscripts to technical results, but try to place these results in the context of their vision of the future of microelectronics.

2. Instructions

All participants are invited to submit camera-ready contributions on the "Future Trends in Microelectronics: Off the Beaten Path" theme for inclusion in the book. However, the editors reserve the right to shorten or reject manuscripts that do not fit. Guidelines for manuscript preparation are given below:

  • 1. All manuscripts are not to exceed 10 pages (including figures and references) without permission of the Editors.
  • Manuscripts are to be submitted in camera-ready format: one-sided pages with a 4-5/8 inch by 7-3/4 inch (11.75 by 19.65 cm) image area. The text should be single-spaced, right and left-justified, in 10 point Times Roman font (the same font used in these Instructions). The figures, tables and figure or table captions should be included into the text, references should follow after the main body of the manuscript. The title and authors (with affiliation) should appear as they do in these Instructions, as should the references.
  • An additional set of good-quality figures should accompany the manuscript.
  • Manuscripts that require editing will be scanned into Microsoft Word. If you are using Microsoft Word for preparing your manuscript, please e-mail an electronic version (to in addition to the submitting the paper version. This will cut down on the number of errors.
  • We will try to show the edited version of the manuscript to each author. Because of the schedule, please make every effort to submit your manuscript by August 1. Manuscripts that arrive later in August will still be considered, but might not get the same careful treatment. Unless you make special arrangements with the editors, manuscripts arriving after September 1 are too late. The manuscripts should be sent to:
  • Prof. A. Zaslavsky
    Division of Engineering, Box D
    Brown University
    182 Hope St.
    Providence, RI 02912 U.S.A.
  • Every manuscript should be accompanied by an official copyright transfer form from Wiley (handed out at the Workshop).
  • No color figures or photographs are to be used. For black-and-white photographs, please submit a glossy original.
  • If you have any additional questions about the manuscript format or content, please check with the editors.
