Abstracts & Manuscripts

The abstracts submitted to be considered for oral/poster presentation should be uploaded by June, 30th. The manuscripts for the accepted abstracts may by sent by August, the 14th, and they will be included in an special issue of the Journal of Low Temperature Physics, free of charge.


The invited speakers and their accompanying persons will be picked up (and delivered back) at the Guarulhos International airport (GRU).

Dear QGFS attendees,

We thank you for your attendance to our workshop and for the good feedback provided. Here it follows the updated information needed to prepare and submit the manuscripts to be considered for publication in the special issue of the JLTP. The deadline is set to: September, 10th 2014, following the instructions below:

A) The manuscripts should be submitted using the attached templates.

The templates show examples of figures meeting the journal standards. Color figures will appear in color on the JLTP "online" at no charge.

Authors should end the caption for each figure in color by: (color figure online) However the figures will be printed black/white on the JLTP "hard copy" issue. Upon request by the authors, colored figures can also be printed in color on the "hard copy", but at extra cost to the authors.

B) The manuscript corresponding author(s) shall e-mail Prof. Silvio Vitiello at:
a) The pdf version of the manuscript;
b) The names of 4 or 5 suitable referees together with their current e-mail addresses.

C) The length of the papers should be kept to a maximum of 8 pages for contributed oral- and poster presentations and to 13 pages for invited and plenary oral presentations. The format of the pages is that of the template.

D) Manuscripts shall be submitted online following the instructions given on the website The corresponding author should connect directly to the site and upload all of his manuscript files by following the instructions given on the screen.

E) The author is required to insert in the box ”Please Enter Comments” the mention: “Article belongs to Special issue QGFS2014".This mention of QFS2014 is very important

F) Once the article has been accepted for publication, the corresponding author will receive a message from Springer with questions regarding the transfer of copyright and the ordering of reprints which can be responded to by simple clicking. Once this is completed, the corresponding author will receive proofs to examine and correct. After the final proof correction by the printer, the article will appear as “online first” in the JLTP - Springer webpage

Once all the accepted articles have appeared “online first”, the Conference Organizers will arrange them in the correct order for publication in the “special issue” of JLTP in early 2015, as will appear on the JLTP webpage:

Should you find any difficulty preparing your manuscript, please, first check the J. of Low Temperature Physics web site, and if the problem persists contact us by emailing Silvio Vitiello at: (Subject: QGFS Information request).
