COOL STARS 21
4-9 July 2022, Toulouse, France
The "Cambridge Workshops of Cool Stars, Stellar Systems and the Sun" are held biennially and have evolved to be the premier conference series for cool star research.
We are thrilled to announce that CS22 will be held in San Diego in 2024!
Posters and Proceedings for Cool Stars 21 will be entirely electronic and freely available online. A collection of participant contributions is made available through Zenodo, an EU funded data and project repository. All submissions must therefore be made on Zenodo's webpage.
To facilitate accessibilty and
visibility, all contributions to the proceedings will indexed on
Briefly, all submissions are assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) number by Zenodo, making contributions citeable. Once all contributions are received, ADS will be notified, they will scrape the Zenodo collection, and then ADS will index each of the contributions as part of a larger volume (Proceedings for Cool Stars 21). To ensure that all entries are properly indexed, it is vital that each contribution include appropriate metadata. In the tutorial below, you'll be instructed about which metadata to include in your submission.
Submission to the arXiv in parallel with submission to the conference proceedings is encouraged. However, if you submit to the arXiv, you must make sure to update the metadata in your Zenodo collection properly so that it does not get listed twice in ADS.
Upload the pdf file of your poster. Optionally, you can also upload your video capsule as a second file.
Contributions are accepted from invited and contributed talks (plenary/splinter sessions) and contributed posters. If you would like to submit a typical conference proceeding, there are no formal page limits. However, for some guidance, we recommend you limit yourself to 4-8 pages for contributed talks and 10-15 pages for invited talks. Those wishing to submit a written conference proceeding are encouraged to format the document using the Cool Stars 21 LaTeX document class. All such submissions should be made as PDFs and will be reviewed for content by the SOC and we may suggest edits.
Submission of presentation slides from speakers is encouraged. PDF versions of these documents are the preferred format for Zenodo contributions to permit the documents to be previewed in a web browser. For maximum impact, you can submit both a written contribution and your presentation slides. Contributions will be checked for the proper metadata.
Submitting to Zenodo is rather simple, but it's important that all metadata be
properly included so that articles get properly indexed on ADS. Below is a series
of screenshots taking you through the submission process from start to finish.
Step 01: Follow the link to the submission page for Cool Stars 21.
Step 02: you'll be presented with a login screen:
If you have a Zenodo account, proceed to login. If you do not, you may login
using your GitHub or ORCID account, or you may create a new account using the "Sign Up"
button located at the bottom of the frame.
Step 03: Once you login, you'll be presented with an "Upload" screen:
Click the button to choose a
file on your local machine, or drag and drop a file
directly onto the screen.
Step 04: After you select one or more files where you will be able to fill out a wide variety of file metadata on the boxes below the upload box. Be sure that in the "Communities" box you see "The 21st Cambridge Workshop on Cool Stars, Stellar Systems, and the Sun". If you do not see this, start typing it into the search bar and it will automatically pop up.
Step 05: Now, start filling out information about your document. First, select the type of file you have just uploaded:
You will be asked to fix this if you do not do it correctly the first time.
It's important for ADS that this be done properly. Continue to fill in the requeted
information, including the Description (i.e., Abstract).
Step 06:Fill in keywords.
Step 07: Choose access rights and a license for your work. You are strongly encouraged to select Open Access and a permissive license so that people can easily access your work.
Step 09: Open the "Contributors" section by clicking on it. Add "Brun, Allan Sacha", “Bouvier, Jérôme”, and “Petit, Pascal” as editors. Again, note that the name must be in the order "Brun, Allan Sacha". Select “Editor” from the dropdown menu.
Step 10: Given credit where credit is due! If you referenced various works in your article, talk, or poster, give them credit by adding the reference information (yes, citations will be counted on ADS, but ADS will only know about them if you enter the information in the "References" section). See the image below about how to format the references:
This is basically a copy-paste of a bibliography.
Step 11: Fill out information about the Workshop as shown below:
Step 12: Review the information to make sure you've done everything properly and then click "Publish"! Or, if you'd like save it and publish later, click "Save"
Step DONE: Congratulate yourself on a job well done.
Thanks to the CS19 team that provided very detailed instructions for their proceedings, which we adapted here for CS21.
