The 61st DAE Solid State Physics Symposium (DAE SSPS 2016) will be held at KIIT University, Bhubaneswar-751024, Odisha during December 26-30, 2016. The scientific deliberations at the symposium will cover a wide range of topics in condensed matter physics, in the form of invited talks, seminars, and contributory papers. In addition, there will be talks by Young Achiever Award nominees and the presentation of the Ph.D. thesis. Accepted contributory papers will be presented as posters and a few will be selected for the oral presentation.
- Phase transitions
- Soft condensed matter including biological systems
- Experimental techniques and devices
- Glasses and amorphous systems
- Surfaces, interfaces and thin films
- Electronic structures and phonons
- Single crystals

The proceedings of the symposium will be published online by the American Institute of Physics (AIP).
|National Advisory Committee|
Submission of the manuscript at the website will be opened in the first week of July 2016.
You will need to create a 'user account' at the symposium website to submit a paper. Please use the Microsoft Word templates available at the symposium website to prepare manuscripts and abstracts.

Please remove the name and affiliation of the authors in the PDF version of the manuscript as it would be used for the refereeing purpose.
The length of the manuscripts will be minimum 2 pages and maximum 3 pages for contributed papers, 5 pages for YAA and Thesis and up to 6 pages for the invited talks.
Please note that papers given in the proper format only will be considered for further review and hence submit your valuable scientific work in the proper format. Also note that regular contributed and invited talk papers in the desired format and which are presented in the symposium only would be considered for publishing ONLINE in the proceedings of the symposium. Papers submitted for the Young Achiever Award (YAA) and Ph.D. Thesis Award will not be included in the proceedings.
Only one paper per registered participant will be considered. However, one can be a co-author of more than one paper.
Acceptance of papers will be communicated by October 05, 2016.
Please note that only those papers that are presented in the symposium will be considered for publishing in the online proceedings of the American Institute of Physics. Users would be able to edit/modify the paper via resubmission till August 16, 2016.
