MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION GUIDE
Authors are encouraged to submit their manuscript through online to email@example.com.The
electronic manuscript shall be prepared in accordance to the “Manuscript Preparation Guide”. All
submissions will be subjected to a review process by the respective panel of experts. Submission of an
article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an
abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for
publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and that, if accepted, it will not be
published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of
Each manuscript that arrives at the editorial office is first reviewed by the editors for general suitability of
publication for the conference. After initial screening the manuscript is passed on to at least two referees
and a reply may be expected two to seven weeks after receipt. A double review process ensures the
content’s validity and relevance. Referees receive electronic versions of manuscript for review. Based on
the comments of the referees, the editors will take a decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript.
A response of the decision and an explanation are then provided to the submitting author together with
additional guidance for changes, additions or deletions - if needed.
These instructions are written in a form that satisfies all of the formatting requirements for the author
manuscript. Please use them as a template in preparing the manuscript. Authors must take special care to
follow these instructions concerning margins. The basic instructions are simple:
• Manuscript shall be formatted for an A4 size page.
• The top, left and right margins shall be 30 mm.
• The bottom margin shall be 25 mm.
• The text shall have both the left and right margins justified.
The manuscript should be organized in the following order: Title of the paper, Authors' names, affiliation
and email address for all authors, Abstract, Key Words, Introduction, Body of the paper (in sequential
headings), Conclusion, Acknowledgements (if applicable), References, and Appendices (if applicable).
The title is centered on the page and is CAPITALIZED AND SET IN BOLDFACE (font size 12 pt). It
should adequately describe the content of the paper.
Author’s Name and Affiliation
The author's name(s) follows the title and is also centered on the page (font size 12 pt). A blank line is
required between the title and the author's name(s). Last names should be spelled out in full and
succeeded by author's initials. The author's affiliation, complete mailing address and e-mail address (all in
font size 12 pt), phone and fax numbers are provided immediately below the authors name.
A nonmathematical abstract, not exceeding 200 words, is required for all manuscripts. It should be an
abbreviated, accurate presentation of the contents of the manuscript. It should contain sufficient
information to enable readers to decide whether they should obtain and read the entire manuscript. Do not
cite references in the abstract.
The author should provide three to five key words that clearly describe the subject matter of the paper.
The manuscript must be typed single spacing. Use extra line spacing between equations, illustrations,
figures and tables. The body of the text should be prepared using Times New Roman. The font size used
for preparation of the manuscript must be 12 points. The first paragraph following a heading should not
be indented. The following paragraphs must be indented 10 mm. Note that there is no line spacing
between paragraphs unless a subheading is used. Symbols for physical quantities in the text should be
written in italics.
Section headings should be typed centered on the page and in capital letters only. The type, fonts and
style above (Times New Roman 12 point bold) are an example of a section heading. Do not underline
section headings. A bold font should be used for section headings. The headings should be numbered.
Subheadings should be positioned at the left margin, in a bold-faced font the same size as the main text
(Times New Roman 12 point) with single line spacing above and below. The first letter of each word in
the subheading should be capitalized.
Sub-subheadings should be typed using italic font the same size as that used for the body of the text
(Times New Roman 12 point italics). Only the first letter in the subheading should be capitalized. Note
that a blank line precedes and follows the subheading.
Equations and Mathematical Expressions
Equation numbers should appear in parentheses and be numbered consecutively. All equation numbers
must appear on the right-hand side of the equation and should be referred to within the text. Two different
types of styles can be used for equations and mathematical expressions. They are: in-line style, and
display style. In-line equations/expressions are embedded in paragraphs of the text. For example,
E = mc2 . In-line equations should not be numbered. Equations in display format are separated from the
paragraphs of text. The equation should be flushed to the centered of the column. For example:
2 E = mc (1).Fractional powers should be used instead of root signs.A slash (/) should be used instead
of a horizontal line for fractions, whenever possible; for example, use 2/3 for two-thirds. Refer to equations
in the text as "Eq. (1)" or, if at the beginning of a sentence, as " Equation (1)". Vectors should be typed
boldface.Do not use arrows, wavy-line underscoring, etc.
Figures and Tables
Figures (diagrams and photographs) should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numbers. They
should be placed in the text soon after the point where they are referenced. Figures should be created
with a resolution larger than 300 dpi. Figures should be centered in a column and should have a figure
caption placed underneath. Captions should be centered in the column, in the format “Figure 1:” and are
in upper and lower case letters. When referring to a figure in the body of the text, the abbreviation
"Figure" is used. Illustrations must be submitted in digital format, with a good resolution. Table captions
appear centered above the table. When referring to a table in the text, "Table" with the proper number is
used. Captions should be centered in the column, in the format “Table 1:” and are in upper and lower case
letters. Tables are numbered consecutively and independently of any figures. All figures and tables must
be incorporated into the text (in Portrait orientation).
PLEASE DO NOT
- Supply files that are too low resolution (MUST be larger than 300dpi)
- Submit graphics that are disproportionally large for the content
The use of SI units is strongly recommended and mixed units are to be avoided.
A conclusion section must be included and should conclude on the findings of the reported work. There
shall be no discussion pertaining to results or analysis in this section.
An acknowledgment section may be presented after the conclusion if desired. This section shall be kept
brief, acknowledging the support rendered by individuals, departments and organization.
The Harvard System of references is to be used. In the body of the text a manuscript is to be referred to by
using number in bracket. References should be listed together at the end of the manuscript in decreasing
order by reference number. Examples of different types of references are as follows:
