Call for Paper

The Review of April Fool's day Transactions (RAFT) proudly reaches its fifth year of existence, supported by a tremendous success and a bigger-than-ever readers audience. Our publication is now acknowledged and recognized by a large -and growing- part of the scientific community. We believe that these successes come from the hard work that has been put in increasing our publishing standards these last five years, and will continue to do so. With your support, we aim once again to reach excellence for RAFT'2010.

You are invited to submit a paper, by March 10th, 2010, to the RAFT Program Committee for consideration at the 2010 edition. A peer-review process will select the best papers which will be published in the transactions.


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.

We have also compiled examples of expected papers.


Papers must be submitted via email to either Rodolphe Héliot (rhataprilfoolsreviewdotcom) or Antoine Zimmermann (azataprilfoolsreviewdotcom) 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.
