The 6th DAE-BRNS National Symposium on Pulsed Laser Deposition of Thin Films and Nanostructured Materials (PLD-2011) will be organized during November 09-11, 2011 at MRC, IISc, Bengaluru. This meet will be organized jointly by Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology (RRCAT) and Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc), Bengaluru. This topical meeting is a continuation of the series of biennial symposia, which was started in RRCAT, Indore in 2001 (PLD-2011). The subsequent meets were held at the University of Pune, Pune in 2003 (PLD-2003), S. V. University, Tirupati in 2005 (PLD-2005), Saurashtra University, Rajkot in 2007 (PLD-2007) and Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai in 2009 (PLD-2009). Scientists, technologists and young scholars pursuing research in the pertinent thematic domain are invited to submit abstracts of their recent findings or developments and participate in the meet.
The purpose of The DAE-BRNS 6th National Symposium on Pulsed Laser deposition of Thin Films and Nanostructured materials (PLD-2011) is to bring together the scientists, academicians, engineers and research scholars currently active in the field of pulsed laser deposition and related processes and to review and stimulate the progress in basic and applied research in particular thematic domain with the exchange of new ideas. The deliberations of the symposium will include tutorial and review talks by the leading experts, thesis presentations and presentations (oral/poster) by scholars on the growth and properties of thin films and nanostructures of different materials of contemporary and future interest.
The submitted abstracts of high quality work will be considered for invited talks. All the accepted abstracts will be published in the form of an abstract book. Selected abstracts will also be considered for publication of full length paper in the form of a proceeding in an edited book/journal after peer review by technical program committee. Maximum 4 pages will be allotted to each manuscript.

Guidelines for Preparing Abstract
Maximum length of the abstract is one page. The abstract should be typed in good English on a plane paper size A4 (210 mm x 297 mm) leaving 25 mm margin on all sides in Times New Roman font. Title of the paper should be bold in font size 12 (do not underline). Authors’ names with initials should be typed one space below the title in font size 10. It should be followed by affiliations of all authors and e-mail address of the corresponding author. All matter should be centered. The text should start two spaces below the address (normal font size 10, justified in single line spacing). Figures and Tables should be suitably reduced and placed at appropriate places with numbers and captions below them. References, if any, should be given in the text as superscripts, numbered according to their occurrences (e.g. 1,2,3 etc) and listed at the end, leaving a single line spacing after the text. The size of the file should not exceed 2 Mb. Please adhere strictly to these guidelines. The abstract template is available below:
Accepted abstracts will be printed in the Book of Abstracts that will be distributed at the time of Conference. The presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission.
Publication of Full Length Paper
The submitted and presented abstracts will be considered for publication of full length paper in the form of a proceeding in an edited book/journal after peer review by technical program committee. Maximum 4 pages will be allotted to each manuscript. The authors will be informed about the preparation of manuscript and submission guidelines in due course of time.
