Proceedings

If your abstract is scheduled for presentation during ICTP 2020, you are encouraged to submit a manuscript for the proceedings. To participate in the proceedings, you must prepare your paper according to the manuscript guidelines. The last page of the guidelines has a helpful checklist for manuscript submission.

Manuscripts of no more than 6 pages and a TMS Transfer of Copyright Form (PDF) must be submitted through ProgramMaster by following the "Presenter/Author Tools" link.
