After Keyword Listing, begin each paper with an abstract (100-200 words)
that summarizes the topic and important results presented in the paper.
Start with the abstract heading, typed in caps, beginning with the left-hand
margin. Underline or bold the heading. Skip a line space, then begin
Type in capitals, beginning flush with left-hand margin. Underline or
bold. Skip a line space, then begin text.
Capitalize the first letter of each word, beginning flush with left-hand
margin. Underline or bold. Skip a line space, then begin text.
Secondary Subheadings. Capitalize the first letter of
each word. Indent 5 spaces from the left-hand margin. Underline or bold.
Text follows on the same line.
Please use as printable area for regular pages (excluding the first
page) the following references (standard A4):
2 cm from the Top
4 cm from the Bottom
2 cm from the Left
2 cm from the Right
0.7 cm Between the Columns
Use footnotes sparingly. Begin two line spaces from previous text by
typing a short horizontal line, using the underscore key 13 times. Skip
1/2 or one line space, type footnote symbol, then type footnote.*
In text, references should be cited by the last name of the author and
the year of publication, all in parentheses. The Reference List should
be organized alphabetically by the name of the author, followed by the
author's initials, year of publication, and other complete information
about the published work. It should not be numbered. Only references
that may be readily obtained should be cited in the list. Others may
referred to as "personal communication" in the text. In the
reference list, multiple entries with the same author are arranged chronologically.
Italicize the name of the publication in which the article is found,
or the title itself if a separate publication (underline if italicizing
is not possible). For laboratory, company, or government reports, all
information on how to obtain the report should be included. For Ph.D.
and M.S. theses, the institutions granting the degree should be given.
References to proceedings should include the full name of the proceedings,
how to obtain it, year of publication, and page numbers of article cited.
A reference to part of a book should include the range of pages in which
the material is cited. Names of periodicals should be written out in
full, and the range of pages cited.
For style and consistency, The Chicago Manual of Style will govern.

(Arthur et al. 1985) if more than three authors
(Andrews 1982a) a trailing lowercase letter should distinguish multiple
papers by the same author(s) published during a single year.

TABLES AND ILLUSTRATIONS
All artwork, figures, captions, graphs, and tables will be reproduced
exactly as you submit them; however, if you have requested the larger
mats, please remember that all such items will be reduced 70% when they
In the interest of clarity and uniformity, graphs and
tables should be kept within a single column, if possible. If not, extension
across two columns is permissible. If pasting on a table or graph, tape
is permissible. Also, any type of paper glue is permissible.
If you include photographs, convert them into Velox prints
or halftones (screened reproductions) and paste or tape them into place.
An 85-line screen is recommended.
If space permits, it is worthwhile to include a brief biography (no
more than 300 words) of the author(s) at the end of the manuscript.
This allows the viewing and reading audience to become familiar with
the background of the author, thus giving the paper greater
impact and validity.
