Dear LPAW participants,

you are kindly encouraged to publish your work presented at the workshop (or work related to it) in a special issue of the journal Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion (PPCF), which had an Impact Factor of about 3 in
2017. The special issue is open to all topics presented at LPAW 2019 independent of the format of presentation.
The only condition is that the work is original and passes the quality standards of PPCF. All manuscripts will thus be subject to the normal reviewing process.

PPCF publishes special issues online incrementally thus providing fast availability and maximizing the readership and citation opportunity for all articles of the issue. We expect you to submit your manuscript at the latest by end of July in order to maintain proximity to the workshop though this is not a strict deadline (any issues with this deadline pleae discuss with the guest editors early).

Submission details can be found on the dedicated webpage of the special issue.
During online submission you will be asked to select "Special Issue Article" and at the bottom of the page "Special issue on the 2019 Laser-Plasma Accelerator Workshop" from a drop down menu. Please do not miss this point
as otherwise manuscripts will be treated as regular articles.

Stefan Karsch and Ulrich Schramm (guest editors of the special issue)
