Manuscripts Accepted for Publication will be Published in a Special Issue of IEEE's Transactions on Plasma Science. Author packets for preparing manuscripts will be mailed to authors whose abstracts are accepted. The International EML Symposium Committee is dedicated to maintaining high standards of quality in conference presentations and published proceedings. Each manuscript will be peer reviewed by at least two independent referees in accordance with IEEE policy. The review process ensures that all authors have equal opportunity for publication of their papers. All accepted papers must conform to IEEE guidelines regarding grammatical quality, technical quality, and previously unpublished original research.
