You are strongly encouraged to use LaTeX 2.09 or LaTeX2e for the preparation of your camera-ready manuscript together with the corresponding files pci8.sty for LaTeX 2.09 and pci8.cls for LaTeX2e.
Whatever the document preparation system used, a postscript file together with all the sources that were used for producing this file should be submitted. Papers submitted in a technically unsuitable form will be returned for to the authors for corrections.
The deadline for submission of camera ready manuscripts (either conference or workshop papers) is 23rd of July. Please, note that at least one of the paper authors has to have registered by this date, so that the paper is included in the proceedings.
3 Page Limit
For conference papers the maximum length is 10 pages. Papers exceeding this limit will not be accepted in the proceedings.
With respect to workshop papers, it is anticipated that the authors will contribute with an extended abstract of at least 4 pages (up to 10 pages).
4 Printing Area
The printing area is 132 mm × 193 mm. The text should be justified to occupy the full line width, so that the right margin is not ragged, with words hyphenated as appropriate. The left margin should be 39mm and the top margin 40mm, exactly. The manuscripts should be formatted for A4 paper size printing.
4.1 Layout, Typeface, and Font
Use 10-point type for the name(s) of the author(s) and 9-point type for the address(es) and the abstract. For the main text, use 10-point type and single-line spacing. We recommend using Computer Modern Roman (CM) fonts, Times New Roman , or one of the similar typefaces widely used in phototypesetting. (In these typefaces the letters have serifs, i.e., short endstrokes at the head and the foot of letters.) Italic type may be used to emphasize words in running text. Bold type and underlining should be avoided. With these sizes, the interline distance should be set so that some 45 lines occur on a full-text page.
The abstract should summarize the contents of the paper and should contain at least 70 and at most 150 words. It should be set in 9-point font size and should be inset 1.0 cm from the right and left margins. There should be two blank (10-point) lines before and after the abstract
Headings should be capitalized (i.e., nouns, verbs, and all other words except articles, prepositions, and conjunctions should be set with an initial capital) and should, with the exception of the title, be aligned to the left. Words joined by a hyphen are subject to a special rule. If the first word can stand alone, the second word should be capitalized. The font sizes are given in Table 1.
Table 1. Font sizes of headings
|Heading level||Example||Font size and style|
|Title (centered)||Panhellenic||14 point, bold|
|1st-level heading||1 Introduction||12 point, bold|
|2nd-level heading||2.2 Abstract||10 point, bold|
|3rd-level heading||Headings. Text fillows||10 point, bold|
|4th-level haeding||Remark. Text follows||10 point, italics|
4.4 Figures and Photographs
Please produce your figures electronically, if possible, and integrate them into your text file. For LaTeX users we recommend using the style files psfig or epsfig. Line drawings should have a resolution of at least 600 dpi (preferably 1200 dpi). For digital halftones 300 dpi is usually sufficient. The lettering in figures should have a height of 2 mm (10-point type). Figures should be scaled up or down accordingly. Figures should be numbered and each should have a legend. Center the legends between the margins and set them in 9-point type. The distance between text and figure should be about 8 mm, the distance between figure and legend about 5 mm. If possible (e.g. if you use LaTeX) please define figures as floating objects. LaTeX users, please avoid furthermore using the location parameter h for “here”. If you have to insert a pagebreak before a figure, please ensure that the previous page is completely filled.
Displayed equations or formulas are centered and set on a separate line (with an extra line or halfline space above and below). Displayed expressions should be numbered for reference. The numbers should be consecutive within each section or within the contribution, with numbers enclosed in parentheses and set on the right margin. For example,
x + y = z . (1)
Punctuate a displayed equation in the same way as ordinary text but with a small space before the end punctuation.
4.6 Program Code
Program listings or program commands in the text are normally set in typewriter font, e.g., CMTT10 or Courier.
The superscript numeral used to refer to a footnote appears in the text either directly after the word to be discussed or – in relation to a phrase or a sentence – following the punctuation sign (comma, semicolon, or period). The footnotes should appear at the bottom of the normal text area, with a line 2 cm long set immediately above them.
The list of references is headed “References” and is not assigned a number in the decimal system of headings. The list should be set in small print and placed at the end of your contribution. Please do not insert a pagebreak before the list of references if the page is not completely filled. An example is given at the end of this information sheet. For citations in the text please use square brackets and consecutive numbers: , , , …
4.9 Page Numbering and Running
Your paper should show no printed page numbers; they are allocated by the volume editor. Do not set running heads.
When submitting your camera-ready manuscript, please make sure you include the following:
- the PS file of the final version of your contribution,
- all your source (input) files, e.g. for LaTeX, TEX files for the text and PS or EPS files for the figures, or for MS WORD, a DOC file containing everything.
- any style files, templates, and special fonts you may have used,
- the final DVI file (for papers prepared using LaTeX).
