Typesetting Instructions for Preparation of the Final Camera-ready Papers


An electronic copy of the full Camera-ready Papers must be uploaded (in PDF) to publication website before the announced deadline. The URL to the website is included in the notification of acceptance that has been emailed to the authors of the accepted papers. Please note that in order for your paper(s) to be included in the conference proceedings, we must also receive the Registration Fee before the announced deadline.

The following instructions detail the requirements necessary for preparation of Final Camera-ready Papers. The Camera-ready Papers would be acceptable as long as they are formatted reasonably close to the format being suggested here. These instructions are comparable to the standard IEEE typesetting format.

Page Layout and Margins

Select a standard size paper such as A4 (210 X 297 mm) or letter (8.5 X 11 in) when preparing your manuscript. Final Camera-ready Papers must be prepared in two-column format. Use at least 1.5-2.0 centimeters (0.6-0.7 inch) for the left and right margins. Leave a 0.6 centimeters (0.25 inch) space between the two columns in the center of the page. Leave a 2.0-2.5 centimeters margin at the page head (top of each page) for placing final page numbers and headers (final page numbers and running heads will be inserted by the publisher). Consider using a Template for preparation of final Camera-ready Papers:

  Word Template

  LaTeX Template (coming Soon)


Type the title approximately 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) from the top of the first page and use 20 points type-font size in bold. Center the title (horizontally) on the page. Leave approximately 1 centimeter (0.4- inches) between the title and the name and address of yourself (and of your co-authors, if any.) Type name(s) and address(s) in 11 points and center them (horizontally) on the page. Note that authors are advised not to include their email addresses.

Section and Subsection Headings

Number section and subsection headings consecutively in numbers and type them in bold. Use point size 14 for section headings and 12 for subsection headings. Avoid using too many capital letters. Both section headings and subsection headings should be flushed left.


Type the abstract (100 words minimum and 150 words maximum) using Italic font with point size 10. The abstract is an essential part of the paper. Use short, direct, and complete sentences. It should be brief and as concise as possible. 


A Maximum of 6 Keywords. 

Main Text

 Use font size (character size) 10 for text. Do not use bold in the main text. If you want to emphasize specific parts of the main text.  The text should be prepared with single line spacing. 


The maximum allowed number of pages is seven for Regular Research Papers (RRP) and Regular Research Reports (RRR), four for Short Research Papers (SRP), and two for Posters (PST).


All tables must be numbered consecutively. Table headings should be placed above the table. Tables should be as close as possible to where they are mentioned in the main text. Tables can span the two columns if need be within the page margins.


All illustrations, drawings, and photographic images will be printed in black and white. We recommend that you examine a printed copy of your paper (in black and white) and make the final adjustments before submission. All illustrations must be numbered consecutively (i.e., not section-wise). Center the figure captions beneath the figure. Do not assemble figures at the back of your article, but place them as close as possible to where they are mentioned in the main text. Figures can span the two columns if need be within the page margins.

Mathematical Formulas

Mathematical formulas should be roughly centered and numbered, as in: 

y = f(x)       (1)

Page Numbering

Do not number any pages in your paper and do not reference page numbers in the text.

Fine Tuning

Do not end a page with a section or subsection heading. Keep footnotes to a minimum. Proper usage of the English language is expected of all Camera-Ready papers.


Number in square brackets ("[]") should cite references to the literature in the main text. List the cited references in numerical order at the very end of your paper (under the heading "References"). Start each referenced paper on a new line (by its number in square brackets).


Do not to include a cover page. After proofreading the final draft of the manuscript, convert it to PDF. (Use of Adobe Acrobat PDF converter is strongly recommended). Examine all pages of the final PDF version before submission. Be sure, and do not password protect the pdf file (no security encryption).
