TABLE I TYPE SIZE FOR PAPERS A. Paper Length The length of the first ABSTARCT is limited to 2 pages. Type The length of the FINAL CAMERA-REDAY paper is limited size Appearance to 4 pages.

    C. Appendices

    Although conference papers do not normally have an

    appendix, appendices, if any, directly follow the text and the references (but see IV.B). Letter them in sequence and

    provide an informative title: Appendix A Title of Appendix. Fig. 1. Magnetization as a function of applied field. Note how the caption is centered in the column. D. Footnote 1. Number footnotes separately in superscripts like this

Avoid placing Define abbreviations and acronyms the first time they are them in the middle of columns or at the end of the paper. used in the text, even if they have been defined in the abstract. Large figures and tables may span across both columns. Abbreviations such as IEEE, SI, MKS, CGS, ac, dc, and rms Figure captions should be centered below the figures; table do not have to be defined. Do not use abbreviations in the captions should be centered above. Avoid placing figures and title unless they are unavoidable. tables before their first mention in the text. Use the

    abbreviation “Fig. 1,” even at the beginning of a sentence. F. Equations

    Figure axis labels are often a source of confusion. Use Number equations consecutively with equation numbers in words rather than symbols. For example, write parentheses flush with the right margin, as in (1). To make “Magnetization,” or “Magnetization (M)” not just “M.” Put your equations more compact, you may use the solidus ( / ), units in parentheses. Do not label axes only with units. In the the exp function, or appropriate exponents. Italicize Roman example, write “Magnetization (A/m)” or “Magnetization symbols for quantities and variables, but not Greek symbols. 1(Am).” Do not label axes with a ratio of quantities and Use an en dash ( ) rather than a hyphen for a minus sign. units. For example, write “Temperature (K),” not Use parentheses to avoid ambiguities in denominators. “Temperature/K.” Punctuate equations with commas or periods when they are Multipliers can be especially confusing. Write part of a sentence, as in 3“Magnetization (kA/m)” or “Magnetization (10A/m).” Figure labels should be legible, about 10-point type. (1) a + b = c.

     B. References Symbols in your equation should be defined before the Number citations consecutively in square brackets [1]. equation appears or immediately following. Use “(1),” not Punctuation follows the bracket [2]. Refer simply to the “Eq. (1)” or “equation (1),” except at the beginning of a reference number, as in [3]. Use “Ref.

    The word “data” is plural, not singular. The subscript for the permeability of vacuum is zero, not a lowercase letter 0“o.” In American English, periods and commas are within

    quotation marks, “like this period.” A parenthetical statement at the end of a sentence is punctuated outside of the closing parenthesis (like this). (A parenthetical sentence is

    punctuated within the parentheses.) A graph within a graph is an “inset,” not an “insert.” The word alternatively is preferred to the word “alternately” (unless you mean something that alternates). Do not use the word “essentially” to mean “approximately” or “effectively.” Be aware of the different meanings of the homophones “affect” and “effect,”

    “complement” and “compliment,” “discreet” and “discrete,”

    “principal” and “principle.” Do not confuse “imply” and “infer.” The prefix “non” is not a word; it should be joined to the word it modifies, usually without a hyphen. There is no period after the “et” in the Latin abbreviation “et al.” The abbreviation “i.e.” means “that is,” and the abbreviation “e.g.” means “for example.” An excellent style manual for science writers is [7].


    The conclusion goes here.


    The preferred spelling of the word “acknowledgment” in America is without an “e” after the “g.” Try to avoid the stilted expression, “One of us (R. B. G.) thanks ...” Instead, try “R.B.G. thanks ...” Put sponsor acknowledgments in the

    unnumbered footnote on the first page.
