Instructions for submitting manuscripts
[Deadlines: May 1, 2008 for preprints, July 27, 2008 for final manuscripts]
As with other conferences in this series, the oral and poster presentations will appear as manuscripts in a book. With the author's permission, we also intend to produce a CD-ROM or on-line archive of the actual presentations.
A complete set of preliminary bound manuscripts will be distributed to the delegates four weeks in advance of the conference. The final manuscript is due at the beginning of the conference and must be in camera-ready form; the only changes that will be permitted after this date are those deemed necessary by the editors*.
* - All papers will be peer-reviewed by the workshop delegates, and the editors reserve the right to reject any papers that fail to meet the requirements of this process.
The proceedings of the conference will be published early in 2009 by World
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in either Microsoft Word or LaTex 2e formats.
The easiest way to format your manuscript is to download/extract and use one of the following zip files, which contain the most important instructions, a template and an example manuscript. [You will need an unzip program such as winzip (Windows) from www.winzip.com or gzip (Unix) (from www.gnu.org) to extract the relevant files.] :
Once the files are extracted, the simplest way to proceed is to insert/overwrite your own text into the example manuscript, and then save the manuscript with a new filename. Please use the first-author's surname as the basis of the filename (e.g. "CooperMoH1.doc").
Number of pages:
For 6-page articles:
1. Introduction, 2. Methods, 3. Results, 4. Discussion, Acknowledgements, References
For 2-page abstracts:
1. Summary (other section headings are not necessary), Acknowledgements, References
Symbols in Text:
If possible, superscripted or subscripted symbols appearing in sentences should be written as text, rather than as formula objects. (This ensures that the line spacing remains constant - otherwise, it is automatically increased to accommodate the superscripted or subscripted symbols).
Guidelines for figures
There are very few set instructions for figures. The following is a list of recommendations.
HINT: Construct the figures with the following specifications and then import without reduction into the camera-ready document.
Arrangement of figures and legends:
Labeling of multi-panel figures:
Useful links for information about preparing figures:
Please only send PC files. Apologies to all Mac users, but Mac and PC files are not 100% compatible - we wish to keep the amount of time-consuming editing to a minimum.Files required for submission:
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, as email attachments, to email@example.com. Due to storage limitations on our mail-server, manuscripts requiring more than 20 MByte should be compressed for E-mailing. Use winzip for Windows or gzip for Unix systems.
Confirmation of receipt of the manuscript will be sent by E-mail within three working days. Should a confirmation have not been received within 10 days please notify us (see the contacts page for details).
