Color figures will be reproduced in color in the electronic version of the Proceedings. To reproduce color figures in color in the hard cover of the Proceedings is an expensive process (500 pounds sterling (GBP) per color page). In case if you really need to print your figure(s) in color and are ready to pay for this amount, please contact us (astropol2020-query) as soon as possible. Therefore, in case of colour figures with half-tones, authors should make sure that their figures will reproduce as desired in black-and-white, and there is no reference to colour in either text or captions.
