We are pleased to announce that we have finalized negotiations so that the Symposium Proceedings Volume will be published as a book in Elsevier's "Radioactivity in the Environment" Book Series.

The Proceeding Volume will contain about 150 full length papers only (no abstracts /extended abstracts) subject to thorough peer review, with the papers being revised accordingly. The Volume will result to a size of 1000 to 1200 pages. Paper length could vary between 5 to 10 pages.

The Proceedings Volume will be produced as Black and White Camera-Ready-Copy. Preparation instructions for the papers are available in .PDF format (click to download). Full papers are due at the Symposium Registration Desk on May 20, 2002.

The Editor of the "Radioactivity in the Environment" Book Series will have the final say about the publication of the Volume in terms of the quality of the manuscripts.

The Symposium paper reviewers will be asked to suggest one of the following three options for every contribution:

        Acceptance for publication in the Proceedings Volume.

        Acceptance for publication at the Symposium WWW site.


Under special agreement with Elsevier, the full text of the papers, which will not be included in the Elsevier Proceedings Volume, will be published at the Symposium WWW site.
