Call for papers

Thanks to an incredibly successful 2010 issue, we are very proud to 
announce the sixth edition of the Review of April Fool's day 
Transactions (RAFT'2011). Not only RAFT is now widely recognised by our 
community, it is today expanding its sphere of influence beyond its 
traditionnal borders, to reach new--and exciting!--areas of science. For 
this reason, we invite you to submit a paper, by March 10th, 2011, to 
the RAFT Program Committee for consideration at the RAFT'2011 'Beyond 
Frontiers' edition. The tremendous investment we've been pouring into 
RAFT for years has paid off, and with your support, we plan to bring our 
publishing standards even further this year.


In the same spirit as in the previous years' issues, we demand that the
submitted papers follow strict rigour, technical soundness, originality,
humour, funniness, weirdness and comprehensibleness. We greatly 
recommend nonsense, Gibberish, gobbledygook jargon and blah blah. Topics 
are entirely up to the authors, but a rude scientific treatment should 
be inflicted to the matter in question.


Papers must be submitted via email to either Rodolphe Héliot 
(rh@aprilfoolsreview.com) or Antoine Zimmermann 
(az@aprilfoolsreview.com) and should fit one of the following formats: 
LATEX or any kind of formatted text (e.g., Micro$oft Word, RTF, HTML, 
etc). Paper language can be either French or English.
