Abstract The abstract will be the first paragraph in your
paper. It should briefly identify the main ideas detailed in your paper. This is where the
double-column format will begin.
Introduction This section is used to preface your paper.
It should provide background on the subject being addressed by the study.
Main Body The main body of the paper is comprised of the
Methods, Results and Discussion sections. The text in the main body must also follow the
double-column format. Please note that figures can span two columns.
Conclusion This section must be included in all papers
and is a summary of what was accomplished by the study.
Acknowledgements - place acknowledgements here, if needed.
References places any references here.
Equations - Equations can be incorporated in your
technical paper in many ways. Some may be images you have scanned, some may be created
with third-party equation software, some may be done with symbol fonts, and some may be
done with equation editing tools of the word processor. However they are done, they should
be numbered consecutively throughout the document, centered, and the equation number
should be enclosed in parentheses flush to the right-hand margin. If you physically paste
equations into white space in order to create your camera-ready paper, make sure the
electronic file retains the same spacing.
Photographs - All photographs submitted must be
originals. Black and white photographs produce the best results. Color photographs do not
reproduce well and should not be used. All photographs, figures, illustrations, tables,
graphs, etc. should be pasted down within the text. The manuscripts will be printed
exactly as they are received.
Tables and Figures - Tables should be captioned with a
consecutive table number and title, which appear above the table (e.g. Table 1. Title).
Figures should be captioned with a consecutive figure number and title, which appear below
the figure, (e.g.; Figure 1. Title). The images should be submitted as separate files as
*.gif or *.jpg format. The following naming convention should be used: E-Equation;
Fig-Figure; T-Table. For example, Equation 1 should be saved as eq1.gif, Figure 1 as
fig1.gif; and Table 1 as t1.gif (only if a table or equation is submitted as a graphic).
Graphics - Note: Graphics should be linked or embedded in
your document. All images must be in black and white or grayscale mode. Black and white
artwork should be saved at 600 dpi as a bitmap image and saved as a *.gif file; photos and
grayscale images should be saved at 300 dpi as a grayscale image and saved as a *.gif
Footnotes and References - Citing anothers work is
the standard method of authenticating data, crediting another worker in the field, or
guiding the reader to supplementary or collateral information. Footnotes appear at the
bottom of the page on which they occur. References should be numbered consecutively and be
listed in a References section at the end of the technical paper. For your text,
references should be numbered in order of first appearance in the body of the paper by
enclosing the reference in brackets (e.g. ). ISBN numbers (if known) should be included
after the publisher name.
