Manuscripts will be published in the Astronomical Society of the Pacific
Conference Series. We will provide LaTeX macros for manuscript preparation
which can be downloaded from this page (available in early July). Papers
will be due October 15, 1999.
Manuscript lengths will be as follows:
|Invited Oral Paper||8 pages||Contributed Oral Paper||6 pages||Contributed Poster Paper||4 pages|
At the meeting, in your registration packet, you will receive a copy of the copyright form for the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. Please turn this form in at the registration desk so that there is no delay in the preparation of the conference Proceedings.
You may obtain all the necessary instructions and LaTeX macros via
FTP at the following address:
These files may also be accessed via anonymous ftp on a local machine in
You can either upload the various desired files after you get and read the README file, or you can get the compressed tar file pasp16.tar.Z to bring over everything at once. Be sure to declare binary before its transfer. On a unix system, to recover the data in the tar file:
The files in this directory are as follows:
|README.bioast99||File containing specific instructions for your Conference Proceedings or IAU Symposia - this file should be edited by the editors for each Proceedings.||README||General instructions about latex||paspconf.doc||Fully documented source for the "paspconf" substyle. Contains macro definitions + comments.||paspconf.sty||LaTeX input style file for the "paspconf" substyle. This is the .doc file stripped of comments and unnecessary whitespace.||paspman.tex||The user input guide for the package.||psample1.tex||Minimal sample paper.||psample2.tex||Sample paper with "typical" content and markup.||sdcpaper.tex||Another sample paper.||Makefile||Macros||copyright.ps||Copyright assignment file from PASP.||copyright.pdf||Copyright assignment file from PASP.||pasp16.tar||Tarfile containing all of the above (except copyright.ps)|
Alternate Submission Format
The ASP Conference series requires that all manuscripts are prepared and submitted in LaTeX. In response to some of you who have requested an alternate submission mechanism, we will allow files to be prepared in MSWord, however, we strongly prefer the LaTex submission, because we will have to convert your file manually. If you submit your manuscript in microsoft word, you will need to also convert it to plain ascii and email this version so we can convert it to LaTeX, and in addition send a paper copy to Guillermo Lemarchand. Guillermo has written up a sample paper showing how to put some of the necessary elements into the paper (i.e. format) to make conversion to LaTeX easy for us. Please follow the style in this example.
Electronic versions of the paper should be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line of the email, please enter a code in as follows:

For large files (e.g. .ps, JPEG, TIF, GIF figures), please do NOT email them to the account above (we will run out of disk space). Instead, upload them directly to our anonymous ftp site, then email us that the transfer has been complete (to email@example.com):
