Participants are now welcome to submit abstracts for oral and poster papers. The subject of the papers should be of interest to all participants and confine itself to the main themes of the conference. All abstracts will be reviewed by members of the SOC for appropriateness prior to being accepted. For example, abstracts will not be accepted for papers that will present chemical analysis of stellar photospheres without a discussion of the appropriateness of atomic data.

There will be opportunitiy for the SOC to fill out the oral program from abstracts submitted for poster papers. Please indicate on the registration form whether you would be willing to change your contribution from a poster paper to an oral paper.

The abstracts will be collected for publication in an abstract book to be distributed to the participants and to be made available on this website prior to the conference.

Abstracts to be considered as oral presentations should be submitted by June 15. Abstracts to be included in the abstract book need to be submitted before July 15.


The poster boards are 90 cm wide and about 180 cm high.


Detailed instructions for the proceedings can be found here.

Oral contributions will be published as a volume of Physica Scripta (T series). Instructions will be made available to the authors at a future date. The papers will be refereed by the editors and ASOS9 SOC.

Poster papers will be published in the open access Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS), which is published by the Institute of Physics Publishing in the UK. All papers published in JPCS are fully citable and upon publication will be free to download.

Each participant will be entitled to publish either an oral or poster paper as part of their registration fee. For the publication of an additional poster paper, the first author will be charged a fee set by the publisher. The first author of all papers must be a registered participant of ASOS9. All poster papers will be refereed by the editors and members of the SOC and should be between four and six pages in length. Instructions for submitting poster papers for publication will be provided at a future date.
