Superalloys 2016, the proceedings of the 13th International Symposium on Superalloys, will be available at the conference. One copy of the proceedings (hardcover book with CD) will be included in the registration fee. The proceedings will be submitted to abstracting and indexing databases, such as ISI, and is fully citable.


A manuscript submission is required for all presenters in the oral and interactive sessions.

The following overview will assist authors with some of the most common questions about submitting a manuscript.

  • The manuscript submission deadline is February 9, 2016.
  • You will receive reviewer feedback by April 1, 2016.
    If the reviewers request that revisions be made to your paper, you will receive a notification by e-mail that your manuscript is "accepted if modified". The deadline for a revised manuscript to be submitted will be in that notification.

Page Limit
Papers must not exceed 10 pages, inclusive of figures and references. Extended abstracts are not permitted for publication, and as such, manuscripts should be more than 1,500 words but not more than 10 pages.

You should use the two-column template and instructions. Detailed instructions for the two-column format are available here.

Most importantly, you should format the paper using 9-point Times font, such as Times New Roman.
Your title should be formatted in 11-point Times font and in all capital letters.

For all proceedings manuscripts, please use these tips to avoid common formatting errors:

  • Top and bottom margins should be 1" (25.4 mm); left and right margins should be .75" (19.05 mm)
  • The font should be a Times font, such as Times New Roman, with single line spacing.
  • The paper title should be entered in an 11-point bold font, centered, and in all capital letters, except for chemical symbols or trade names where lower-case letters are used.
  • Do not add page numbers or headers/footers to the top or bottom of the pages.
  • Check that all symbols and Greek characters appear correctly in the final PDF document.

Presentation of Data
It is the goal of the conference to provide high-quality papers of clear value and usefulness to the superalloys community. Therefore, actual data should be presented in manuscripts rather than normalized data. Manuscripts that do contain normalized are likely to be rejected during the review process.

Transfer of Copyright
TMS requires a transfer of copyright from the author or author’s employer prior to publication in the conference proceedings. A form has been created to assist with this transfer and is available on the TMS proceedings instructions webpage.

If your employer or funding agency requires that an acknowledgment appear in the manuscript, place it at the end of the paper just before the references section.

All proceedings manuscripts must include a references section. Each reference must include complete information about the source material.
