The conference proceedings will be published in the journal Hyperfine Interactions (published by Springer Nature). Invited talks as well as oral and poster presentations will be included in the conference proceedings. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed according to standard international procedures before being accepted for publication in the conference proceedings.
The procedure for submitting manuscripts is the same as for other conference proceedings (e.g. ICAME) published in Hyperfine Interactions. It is important to notice that there is no a priori page limit. Authors are free to use as many pages as necessary. Referees might object to manuscripts which are unnecessarily long.
Submissions to Hyperfine Interactions take place via an online submission system.
You can login to the submission system using the "Author Login" button after registering yourself with the "Register Now" button, if you are accessing this system for the first time. You will be asked to indicate which conference your submission is intended for. Please select MECAME2017.

A wide range of submission file formats for text and illustration is supported. The most common submission file format is a Word-file. Get more detailed author instructions.
The online submission window will be opened a few weeks before the start of the conference.
Deadline for the electronic submission of manuscripts is noon on the first day of the conference.
With the consent of Springer Nature, publisher of Hyperfine Interactions, the final accepted version of all peer reviewed and accepted conference manuscripts will be published on the website of the Mössbauer Effect Data Center together with the conference manuscripts of the most recent ICAME, ISIAME and LACAME conferences. It is the purpose to keep using this database as a repository for Mössbauer conference proceedings in order to facilitate access for the scientific community.
All these conference manuscripts can be downloaded from this website free of charge.
To assist correct citation of the conference articles clear indications are given of the corresponding Hyperfine Interactions issues and page numbers.
Please notice that this free open access offered to the conference participants and their community is different from the open access offered to the authors, against payment, by Springer Nature upon publication of their manuscript.
Hyperfine Interactions was created in 1975 as a scientific journal with a strict peer review procedure, with the main purpose to publish conference proceedings in the border region between nuclear physics, atomic physics and solid state physics.
The present publisher is Springer Nature. Since May 2015 the scope of this publisher has broadened through the merger of Springer Science & Business Media with the Nature Publishing Group, Palgrave Macmillan and Macmillan Education.
Articles published in Hyperfine Interactions are listed and fully indexed by search and indexing databases such as Web of Science, Google Scholar and Scopus. In 2008 Web of Science split their journals database into two: the traditional journals part and a new proceedings part, and they moved all journals they decided to be proceedings journals, including Hyperfine Interactions, into that new database. Since then Web of Science only publishes impact indices for journals in their journals database, not for journals in their proceedings database.
However, citations to articles in Hyperfine Interactions are still measured and included as they had been before, and journal metrics values for Hyperfine Interactions can be found at the journal’s own website. They include the Source Normalized Impact per Paper (equal to 0.485 in 2014).
