All manuscripts are limited to 10 single-spaced pages, including the Title block, abstract, figures, tables and references.
Additional pages are not accepted.
1.3 Page Numbering
Do not type the page number on the manuscript sheet.
- TITLE AND ABSTRACT BLOCKS
2.1 Title Block
The title should appear in bold capital letters without underlining, centered, near the top of the first page of the paper. Use more than one line if you wish, but always use single spacing. After one blank line type the author(s)’ name(s) and affiliation in upper and lower case letters centered under the title. In the case of multi-authorship, group them by firm or organization. Affiliation should include the institution(s) and the postal address. For convenience of readers of the proceedings, it is recommended to include the e-mail address(es). A slight change of the title and authors of full paper from the submitted Abstract Form is accepted.
2.2 Key Words
Leave two blank lines under the Title Block. Type “KEY WORDS:” flush left in bold capital letters, followed by three to five English key words which are not included in the paper title.
Leave one blank line under the key words. Type “ABSTRACT” flush left in bold capital letters followed by the abstract. Please write a concise abstract (limited to 300 words) which presents in short the content and, very importantly, the news and results of the paper in words understandable also to a non-specialist. The text must be always single spaced, without blank lines between paragraphs. Start paragraphs flush with left margin.
- MAIN BODY OF TEXT
Type text single-spaced, with one blank line between paragraphs and headings. Start paragraphs flush with left margin.
Major headings or chapter headings are to be flush with the left margin, in bold capitals without underlining. Major headings are on a separate line between two single blank lines.
Type subheadings flush with the left margin, in bold upper case and lower case letters (Title Case). Subheadings are on a separate line between two single blank lines.
Sub-subheadings: Sub-subheadings are to be typed in bold upper case and lower case letters after one blank line flush with the left margin of the column, with text following on the same line.
Decimal numbering of all headings is appreciated. If there is no bold printing available to you, use underlining, instead, but only for subheadings and sub-subheadings, not for major headings.
Avoid footnotes, but if you need them, mark footnotes in the text with an asterisk (*); use a double asterisk (**) for a second footnote on the same page.
