The Proceedings of the ICCA8 will be published as a special issue of Advances in Applied Clifford Algebras (AACA) due to a generous offer from Prof. Jaime Keller.

The deadline for the submission of manuscripts is September 30, 2008. All manuscripts will be refereed. There is no mininum length for the paper, but it is expected to not exceed 30 pages (in the "birkmult" LaTeX class described below). Manuscripts should be sent either to Prof. Waldyr Rodrigues or to Prof. Jayme Vaz.

The information for authors given below is reproduced from AACA website.



Submission of a manuscript implies
  • that the work described has not been published before;
  • that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere;
  • that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities at the institute where the work has been carried out;
  • that, if and when the manuscript is accepted for publication, the authors agree to automatically transfer the copyright to the publisher;
  • that the manuscript will not be published elsewhere in any language without the consent of the copyright holder;
  • that the manuscript should be written in English.

The Editorial Process

To speed up publication, and to ensure a unified layout throughout the journal, we require the use of LaTeX.

Preparation of Manuscripts

It must include a title, the author’s name(s), an abstract, and the keywords. The AMS MSC 2000 Mathematics Subject Classification codes should be added, if applicable. Pictures should not be in colour, their resolution should be at least 300 dpi, and all used fonts must be embedded; pictures should be in EPS format.

All authors should give their complete addresses along with an e-mail address, if applicable.

We require the use of LaTeX or AMS-LaTeX to compile the final version of the papers once that they are accepted for publication. Please note that we cannot accept electronic files produced on any other typesetting or word processing system.

Class File: To simplify the transformation process between your documents and the final layout, we provide the LaTeX class file birkmult.cls ready for use with the newer LaTeX versions (LaTeX2e). It can be downloaded from the web page as a zip file,

The first line in your document should be

The class file mainly sets the fonts, margins and spacing. It is based on the standard AMSart class.

Hence all of the usual LaTeX and AMS-LaTeX commands can be used inside your document. A small sample file containing a short documentation and being useful as template is also provided in the zip file.

The authors are highly recommended not to modify the class file by introducing personal settings and/or definitions.

General Remarks: We request, that neither overfull nor underfull boxes are contained in the text, that equations do not exceed the indicated text width, and that hyphenations as well as the page breaks have been checked.
