Authors are advised to use the templates and in case of difficulties they should consult the JACOW electronic publication help pages. The templates contain styles which, when applied, will automatically ensure correct typesetting and layout.
Contributed papers for both oral and poster presentation may be up to 6 pages long.
See the template for a typical implementation of the requirements.
Manuscripts should be prepared for one side of the paper and have:
The margins should be as follows:
US Letter paper
Authors should use only Times or Times New Roman (in roman, bold or italic) and Symbol fonts. All contributions should use 10pt fonts for the normal text.
The title should use 14pt bold uppercase letters and be centred on the page.
The names of the authors and their organisation/affiliation and mailing address should be listed alphabetically in 10pt upper and lower case letters, grouped by affiliation. When there is more than one author, the submitting author's name should be given first, followed by the other names in alphabetical order.
Section headings should use 12pt bold uppercase letters and be centred in the column. They should NOT be numbered.
Widow and Orphan Control: All headings should appear next to the following text - there should never be a column break between a heading and the following paragraph.
Subsection headings should use 12pt italic letters, be left aligned and justified in the column. As for section headings, they should NOT be numbered.
Place figures and tables as close to the place of their mention as possible. Lettering in figures and tables should be large enough to reproduce clearly, using only the approved fonts. Use of non-approved fonts in figures often leads to problems when the files are processed and may even cause loss of information.
All figures and tables must be given sequential numbers (1, 2, 3, etc.) and have a caption placed below the figure or above the table being described.
If a displayed equation needs a number, place it flush with the right margin of the column.
All bibliographical references should be numbered and listed at the end of the paper in a section called "REFERENCES". When referring to a reference in the text, place the corresponding reference number in square brackets. See the template for a typical example.
Acronyms should be defined the first time they appear.
DO NOT have page numbers.
Authors are strongly advised to use the template corresponding to the correct version of WORD and not to transport the document across different platforms e.g. MAC <-> PC or across different versions of WORD on the same platform.
