Format of Submission
Number of pages allowed for the paper is ONLY 1 page. No more papers as final manuscript needs to be submitted.
The Title should be concise and informative enough to facilitate understanding of the paper. Acronyms should not be in the Title. Authors' names should preferably be written in full name for all publications to facilitate indexing and avoid ambiguities.
The text should be in 11 point Times New Roman with single spacing. We normally recommend the use of 1.0 (single) line spacing. However, when typing complicated mathematical text it is important to increase the space between text lines in order to prevent sub- and super-script fonts overlapping one another and making your printed matter illegible.
Large figures and tables may span across both columns. Figure captions should be centered below the figures; table captions should be centered above. Avoid placing figures and tables before their first mention in the text. Use the abbreviation "Fig. 1," even at the beginning of a sentence. Figure axis label are often a source of confusion. Use words rather than symbols. Tables should be presented in the form shown in Table1. Their layout should be consistent throughout. Equations are placed in center and should be preceded and followed by one line of white. If they are numbered, make sure that they are numbered consecutively. Place the numbers in parentheses. Flush with the right-hand margin of the column and level with the last line of the equation. Graphics may be full color. All colors will be retained on the USB Proceeding. Graphics must not use stipple fill patterns because they may not be reproduced properly. Please use only SOLID FILL colors which contrast well both on screen and on a black-and-white hardcopy.
A Reference section should follow the text. Reference should be made to the full list of authors rather than to first author followed by an abbreviation such as et al.
