Conference papers


Dear XTOP participants,

as announced during the conference, 20 selected contributions will be published in a special open-access issue of Journal of Applied Crystallography. The Guest Editors of the issue will be Virginie Chamard (Institute Fresnel, Marseille) and Václav Holý (Charles University, Prague). The manuscripts will undergo a standard reviewing process. 

Please submit the manuscripts at the dedicated page in order to be considered as part of the special issue. Articles submitted via the regular submission page will be treated as standard journal submissions.

Further useful links for authors can be found at

According to several requests, we have shifted the submission deadline to October 31, 2016.​

 If more than 20 papers are successfully evaluated by reviewers, then the rest will be recommended for publishing in JAC as standard papers.

Looking forward to your contributions,

    Petr Mikulík, Virginie Chamard and Václav Holý
