    Instructions to authors for writing Full Paper for ICAMMP-2011 proceedings

    The proceedings of ICAMMP 2011 will be archived online at the IIT Kharagpur website.

    Authors should submit their manuscripts as per the following format for peer-review.

    Structure: The research papers (maximum 6 camera-ready pages including figures and tables) should contain the following sections: Title, Authors, Affiliations (with full contact details for all authors), Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Experimental Details, Results and Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgements, References, Figure with captions, Tables with headings should be embedded in the text. An extra set of figures must also be submitted (see Illustrations below).

    Text layout: Manuscripts should be saved in Word 2003 format. Number all pages continuously; italic or bold type may be used if necessary; do not justify text.

Abstract: An abstract of 150 words must be supplied, outlining the aims, scope and conclusions of the


     -1-1Units and Symbols: Use of SI units is mandatory. The style is to use the form W m K, not W/m.K etc.

    Abbreviations and usage of units should follow the suggestions of ISO/IEC 80000. Do not use the same symbol to represent more than one variable. Ensure that similar characters, e.g. the letter ‘I’ and the

    number ‘1’ and the letter ‘O’ and the number ‘0’, are used correctly and consistently.

    Figures and tables: Number figures and tables in single sequences throughout the text using Arabic numerals: ‘Fig. 1’, ‘Fig. 2’, ‘Fig. 3’,...; ‘Table 1’, ‘Table 2’, ‘Table 3’,… . Include tables within the manuscript file using Word Table mode. Each figure and table must have a caption which is placed below the figure and above the table. If referenced material is used, include the source and any credits requested by the copyright holder.

    Equations: Equations should be sequentially numbered and referred to in the text as, for example, ‘equation (1)’ without the inverted commas. Equations must be produced in Word 2003 compatibility

    mode using Equation Editor 3.0 or in an earlier version of Word.

    References: References should be cited in the text by a numeral in square parenthesis located at the end of the sentence e.g. [4]. A list of references, in numerical order, should appear at the end of the paper. Number references cited for the first time in a table or figure caption as if they appeared in the text where the table or figure is first mentioned. All references must be complete, including all authors and paper titles, verified at source and journal abbreviations should follow the ISO system. Examples of layout of references are given below.
