39th Annual Condensed Matter and Materials Meeting, Wagga, 2015

Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia

3rd – 6th February 2015

The 39th Annual Condensed Matter and Materials Meeting was held at Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia, from 3-6 February, 2015.  Organising committee: Roger Lewis – General Chair, Chao Zhang – Program Chair, Joseph Horvat, Enbang Li, Evan Constable, Julian Steele, Andrew Squires, John Mabon, Colin Bleasdale, Jarrod Colla, Yee Sin Ang and Matthew Sanderson.

There were 82 attendees, including international visitors  from New Zealand, France, Germany, USA, Japan, China and Brazil. Ten invited and 28 contributed oral papers were presented during the two and one half days of scientific sessions. There were also two sessions with a total of 32 poster presentations. All presenters were invited to submit a manuscript (six pages for invited papers and four for contributed papers) for publication in the conference proceedings. Each manuscript was refereed by at least two anonymous reviewers who worked to a set of guidelines made available by the editors. Each accepted publication therefore satisfies the requirements for classification as a refereed conference publication (E1). The organisers would like to thank the reviewers for their time and effort in reviewing manuscripts, which resulted in seven papers being accepted for publication. These are available via the links below.
