  • arXiv ePrint Submission Instructions

All papers for the proceedings of this conference must be submitted to the arXiv ePrint archive http://arXiv.org at Cornell.  For first time users, a  general submission help can be found at the arXiv ePrint site. The Web upload is particularly easy to use from a PC, Mac, or UNIX machine. You will receive confirmation e-mail upon every step of the process, if you don't, it means you still have more to do. The ultimate goal is to see the full text of your paper on the arXiv.org server with an ePrint number in the form "arch-ive/yymmnnn."

REMINDER: When submitting your files to the arXiv, do not forget to include all the files that are necessary to create a valid PS or PDF of your paper. 

  • Submitting to the ePrint Server

When submitting your paper to the arXiv ePrint server, be sure to include the conference information in the comments field. For example Jane Q. Physicist and her colleague's submission would look like this:

Authors: Jane Q. Physicist and J.R.B. Goode.
Comments: Invited talk at the Hadron Collider Physics Symposium (HCP2008), Galena, Illinois, USA, May 27-31, 2008; 5 pages, LaTeX, 3 eps figures.

  • Additional Information about the arXiv ePrint Server

Document Format

The ePrint archive will reject PS or PDF files created using TeX/LaTeX in favor of the source files. 

File Size

The arXiv ePrint server rejects files over 650k. This problem generally occurs if the paper contains a lot of large figures. Usually large figures are a result of converting jpegs to PS files. The arXiv ePrint server provides help on how to do this more efficiently. Another way to avoid this problem is to submit smaller graphics, with lower resolution and then provide a link to your Web page in the Comments section pointing users to better quality pictures.

  • Send your ePrint number to the Editorial Team

Once you have successfully submitted your paper to the ePrint arXiv, it is important to provide the editorial team with the following information:


Author Name:

Is this a revised paper? No Yes
(If you submit a revised paper to the arXiv ePrint server, you will need to resubmit this form to the editorial team)

Title of Paper:

ePrint Number:

(Example: hep-ex/xxxxxxx)
