Abstract:
Type the abstract (100 to 150 words) using
Italic font with point size 10.  The abstract is an essential part
of the paper.  Use short, direct, and complete sentences.  It
should be as brief and concise as possible.

Keywords: a maximum of six keywords.


Section Headings and Subsection Headings:
Number section and subsection headings consecutively in Arabic numbers
and type them in bold.  Use point size 14 for section headings and 12
for subsection headings.  Avoid using too many capital letters.  Keep
section and subsection headings always flushed left.

Main Text:
The paper is to be written in two-column format.  The column width
should be approximately 3 inches.  The gap between the two columns
should be about 0.375 inches.  

Use at least 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) for the left and right margins.
Use Roman and font size 11 (or 12) for text (character size.)  Do not use
bold in the main text; if you want to emphasize specific parts of the main
text, use italics.  Start a new paragraph by indenting it from the left
margin (and not by inserting a blank line), except under a section or
subsection heading.  Leave a margin of at least 2.5 centimeters (1 inch)
at the page head for placing the final numbers and running heads.
Type on one side of a sheet only.  You may type on plain white paper
(A4 size in Europe, or other standard size used in other parts of the
world; Typing area should not exceed 9.2 x 6.5 inches (23.4 x 16.5
centimeters.))  The text should be prepared with a double column format
and single line spacing.

Figures:
All illustrations should be original drawings or photographic prints of
originals. Photographs should be glossy prints.  Photocopies are often
not good enough and should be avoided.  All illustrations must be
numbered consecutively (i.e., not section-wise), using Arabic numbers.
Center figure captions beneath the figure.  If possible, do not assemble
figures at the back of your article, but place them as close as possible
to where they are mentioned in the main text.  Figures can span the two
columns.

Tables:
All tables must be numbered consecutively (in Arabic numbers.) Table
headings should be placed above the table.  Place tables as close as
possible to where they are mentioned in the main text.  Tables can
span the two columns.

References:
References to the literature should be mentioned in the main text by an
Arabic number in square brackets.  List these (in numerical order) at
the very end of your paper (under the heading `References'.)  Start
each reference on a new line (by its number in square brackets.)

Fine Tuning:
    -  Do not end a page with a section or subsection heading.
    -  Keep footnotes to a minimum.
    -  Do not include page numbers in the text.
