Editor: Travis A. Rector
The subject matter should pertain directly to the BL Lac and/or blazar phenomenon in general. Both observational and theoretical abstracts are appropriate. Abstracts from papers dealing with other classes of AGN will generally not be accepted unless they explicitly discuss their relevance to the blazar phenomenon; however exceptions to this rule will be considered.
A monthly call for abstracts will be issued, however contributions may be submitted at any time. Submissions will be sent to subscribers as PDF files within 1-2 working days. Announcements of general interest to the BL Lac and blazar communities may also be submitted for posting in the newsletter. These might include (but are not restricted to) the following: (i) job openings directed towards blazar researchers, (ii) announcements of upcoming meetings, (iii) announcements of upcoming observing campaigns for which participation is solicited from the community at large, (iv) reviews of new books, and (v) general announcements that provide or request research-related information.
To submit a paper abstract or Ph.D. thesis abstract, please use the LaTeX
templates provided. Abstracts which are not in this template format cannot
be accepted. Both templates are stand-alone LaTeX documents; and I ask that
you compile them with LaTeX to check for any errors before submitting. Documents that do not properly compile will not be accepted. This
will save me tremendous efforts in solving any problems; and will assure that
your abstract will appear in the newsletter as you had
intended. Important: If you use any specially
defined characters be sure to include their definitions as well.
