IOP Conference Series is celebrating its 10th anniversary. We have published proceedings for more than 600 conferences in these 10 years, having worked with hundreds of conference organizers.
This is what they say:
Our experience with IOP Publishing throughout the publication procedure was excellent. IOP has a very smooth system to facilitate the publication procedure both from the editors' and the authors' points of view. The technical support received from the Publishing Coordinator at every aspect needs special mention.

Support for us as guest editors was excellent: always a quick response to all questions, preparation of proceedings was well supported by instructions for authors and organizers.
Heidi Reinholz, Universität Rostock
I would like to thank you personally for the support back in 2010 when the proceedings of the IAHR Symposium were published for the first time within the IOP Conference Series. Since then, the 2012 edition, as well as the 2014 one, have made this same choice mainly because: (i) the reviewing process, and consequently the paper quality, was significantly enhanced; (ii) the papers gained excellent visibility being open access as well as indexed in Web of Science; (iii) the number of citations has increased, particularly in journal papers; (iv) we save the forest ... while having the papers available indefinitely online.
Romeo Susan-Resiga, Politehnica University Timisoara
To showcase the diverse range of proceedings we publish, we have created a collection of the most frequently downloaded proceedings volumes published in 2014. We cover all fields of physics, materials science and environmental science, publishing everything from large conferences through to small workshops and seminars.
The Science of Making Torque from Wind 2014 (TORQUE 2014)
18–20 June 2014, Copenhagen, Denmark
The global yearly production of electrical energy by wind turbines has grown by approximately 25% annually over the last couple of decades and now covers 2–3% of the global electrical power consumption. In order to make a significant impact on one of the large challenges of our time, namely global warming, the growth has to continue for a decade or two yet. This in turn requires research and education in wind turbine aerodynamics and wind resources, the two topics which are the main subjects of this conference. Similar to the growth in electrical power production by wind is the growth in scientific papers about wind energy. Over the last decade the number of papers has also grown by about 25% annually, and many research based companies all over the world are being founded. Hence, the wind energy research community is rapidly expanding and the Torque conference series offers a good opportunity to meet and exchange ideas.
22nd International Congress on X-Ray Optics and Microanalysis
2–6 September 2013, Hamburg, Germany
The ICXOM series is a forum for the discussion of new developments in instrumentation, methods and applications in the fields of micro- and nano-analysis by means of x-ray beams. Following the trend of the last ten years, the conference focusses more and more on synchrotron radiation rather than x-ray laboratory sources. Besides micro-beam x-ray fluorescence and absorption spectroscopy, different methods based on diffraction and full-field imaging were covered. Newly introduced to the ICXOM series was scanning coherent x-ray diffraction imaging, which was shown to evolve into a mature method for the imaging of nanostructures, defects and strain fields. New developments on fast x-ray detectors were discussed (Lambda, Maia) and advances in x-ray optics—like the generation of a sub 5nm point focus by Multilayer Zoneplates—were presented. Talks on micro- and nano-analysis applications were distributed in special sessions on bio-imaging, earth and environmental sciences, and cultural heritage.
XVII International Conference on the Use of Computers in Radiation Therapy (ICCR 2013)
6–9 May 2013, Melbourne, Australia
From a professional perspective there is nothing quite as enjoyable as attending a good conference with colleagues that share not only an interest in the same topic but also a similar vision for their field of work. Proceedings cannot replace the direct contact and lively conversations between participants who are at the same place at the same time sharing ideas and discussion. However, proceedings complement the actual conference by: (i) giving the ideas, research findings and debates which characterise the conference a lasting presence; (ii) giving participants an opportunity to refresh their memory about issues they would like to follow up on; and (iii) providing an opportunity for others who were not able to attend the meeting to share in the thoughts and issues discussed at the conference. For the proceedings of the International Conferences on the Use of Computers in Radiation Therapy (ICCR) all this has been important in the past as the high citation rates for ICCR proceedings show. We hope that the present proceedings will also appeal to participants and others who are interested in cancer and ways to treat patients affected by it. It is exciting to note that what sounded like a small niche field ('Computers in Radiation Therapy') has become a very broad forum to discuss all aspects of cancer diagnosis and therapy. Of particular interest for the 17th ICCR has been data and how to collect, organize and use them effectively. This is relevant for most areas in medicine and we believe that radiation therapy with its focus on evidence based practice and measurable and standardised activities has an important and possibly leading role to play.
EmQM13: Emergent Quantum Mechanics 2013
3–6 October 2013, Vienna, Austria
Could there appear a revised image of physical reality from recognizing new links between emergence, the quantum, and information? Could a novel synthesis pave the way towards a 21st century, 'superclassical' physics? The symposium provided a forum for discussing (i) important obstacles which need to be overcome as well as (ii) promising developments and research opportunities on the way towards emergent quantum mechanics. Contributions were invited that presented current advances in both standard as well as unconventional approaches to quantum mechanics.
The volume starts with a contribution by organizers Jan Walleczek and Gerhard Grössing, essentially explaining why emergent quantum mechanics, and other deterministic approaches to quantum theory, must be considered viable approaches in quantum foundations today. This is followed by the exposition of Stephen Adler's talk who introduced to a general audience key questions at the current frontiers of quantum mechanics during the opening evening (with the contents of his conference talk appearing elsewhere).
2nd International Conference on Mathematical Modeling in Physical Sciences 2013 (IC-MSQUARE 2013)
1–5 September 2013, Prague, Czech Republic
The conference was attended by more than 280 participants and hosted about 400 oral, poster and virtual presentations with more than 600 pre-registered authors. The second IC-MSQUARE consisted of different and diverging workshops and thus covered various research fields where Mathematical Modelling is used, such as Theoretical/Mathematical Physics, Neutrino Physics, Non-Integrable Systems, Dynamical Systems, Computational Nanoscience, Biological Physics, Computational Biomechanics, Complex Networks, Stochastic Modeling, Fractional Statistics, DNA Dynamics, Macroeconomics.
