All presenters are offered the opportunity to submit a paper to the Proceedings. IAU Symposium Proceedings are published in the IAU Proceedings’ Series by the IAU Publisher, Cambridge University Press (CUP). The registration fee includes the cost of the proceedings (£10, about EUR 12, for the electronic access through an online account). Participants interested in the hardback copy of the proceedings should request it at registration and pay an additional cost of £49, about EUR 58. After registration, this can still be requested via Stage 2 (option E, Additional items only).

The number of pages that can be submitted per presenting author is 3 pages for a poster contribution, 4 pages for an oral contributed paper and 6 pages for an oral invited paper. Given that the maximum allowed for the Proceedings is 600 pages and we have more than 200 abstract entries, we ask that if you presented two abstracts or more, you choose and prepare one manuscript. Templates are available on the IAU rules, guidelines and instructions.

We require all manuscripts to be submitted by September 17th, 2017. We will be using an online submission system to collect all submissions to the Proceedings volume. You should register to use this online submission system, found at

All contributions must be submitted via this online site, and authors should take care to submit their contribution to the correct Symposium number (335)- this will have to be selected by the author from a dropdown menu on submission.

You may then complete the online Consent to Publish & Transfer of Copyright form.

There will be a ‘light’ refereeing process of papers to ensure quality. We recommend that authors do not wait until after the meeting to start preparing their manuscript. The proceedings of the IAUS335 “Space Weather of the Heliosphere: Processes and Forecasts” will be published no more than 6 months after the celebration of the Symposium.
