Paper Preparation Guidelines (download)
In the following you will find guidelines and templates for preparing your full paper to WONP-NURT 2013 electronically. We suggest that you print and read this information carefully before downloading the template packages.
Full author templates kit (all templates)
All manuscripts must be in English.
To achieve the best viewing experience we strongly encourage to use Times-Roman font (the LaTeX style file as well as the Word template files use Times-Roman). This is needed in order to give the Proceedings a uniform look.
Adding index terms: to be properly indexed by citation indexing systems it is necessary for papers to include "Index Terms" after the abstract.
Authors are requested to submit PDF files of their manuscripts, generated from the original Microsoft Word or LaTeX sources. The PDF files should comply with the requirements as mentioned in section 2.11 of the template files. PDF files can be generated with commercially available tools or with free software such as PDFCreator.
The generated PDF file must be <750KB in size, to be able for receiving in our email server.
Minor updates of accepted papers will be allowed during January 14-25, 2013.
- After the abstract add "Index Terms:" and add up to five comma separated terms. No convention is defined for the terms, but try to be informative and standard. E.g. "nuclear fission, radiation damage, exotic nuclei ".
- The templates contain examples of how to add index terms.
Microsoft Word TEMPLATE
If your paper will be written using Microsoft Word, template files (for Microsoft Word 2000 or later) are available which will produce the proper format. These files include:
wn_word_template.dot (MS-Word template)
wn_word_template.pdf (PDF version generated from the template)
If your paper will be typeset using LaTeX, please download the template package that will generate the proper format. In the package, you will find the following files:
wn_latex_template.tex (LaTex template)
wonp-nurt.sty (style file to be used with the template)
figure.eps, figure.jpg and figure.pdf (an example figure used in the template)
wn_latex_template.pdf (PDF version generated from the template)
The LaTeX Templates distributed for WONP-NURT 2013 have been generated using the tetex-3.0 distribution for Unix/Linux. Other recent TeX/LaTeX distributions should be able to produce the same results. You may consult the CTAN (Comprehensive TeX Archive Network) at http://www.ctan.org for recent updates and style files.
For a 9-point type font, there should be no more than 3.2 lines/cm (8 lines/inch) vertically. This is a minimum spacing; 2.75 lines/cm (7 lines/inch) will make the paper much more readable. Larger type sizes require correspondingly larger vertical spacing.
Paper Title - The paper title must be in boldface. All non-function words must be capitalized, and all other words in the title must be lower case. The paper title is centered across the top of the two columns on the first page.
Authors' Name(s) - The authors' name(s) and affiliation(s) appear centered below the paper title. If space permits, include a mailing address here. The templates indicate the area where the title and author information should go. These items need not be strictly confined to the number of lines indicated; papers with multiple authors and affiliations, for example, may require two or more lines for this information.
Abstract - Each paper must contain an abstract that appears at the beginning of the paper. The abstract must not be longer than 250words. The abstract in the actual paper and the one entered during paper submission must be identical. Avoid non-ASCII characters or symbols as they may not display correctly.
Major Headings - Major headings are in boldface, with the first word capitalized and the rest of the heading in lower case. Examples of the various levels of headings are included in the templates.
Sub Headings - Sub headings appear like major headings, except that they start at the left margin in the column.
Sub-Sub Headings - Sub-sub headings appear like sub headings, except that they are in italics and not bold face.
References - Number and list all references at the end of the paper. The references are numbered in order of appearance in the document. When referring to them in the text, type the corresponding reference number in square brackets as shown at the end of this sentence . (This is done automatically when using the LaTeX template).
Illustrations - Illustrations must appear within the designated margins, and must be positioned within the paper margins. They may span the two columns. If possible, position illustrations at the top of columns, rather than in the middle or at the bottom. Caption and number every illustration.
Do NOT include headers and footers. The page numbers, session numbers and conference identification will be inserted automatically in a post processing step, at the time of creating the Proceedings.
Any text or other material outside the margins will not be printed.
Print the paper on white paper and check that the positioning (left and top margins) as well as other layout features are correct.
The conference organizers will use the submitted pdf files and auto-generate pdf-files when authors submitted PostScript files. Colors will be reproduced in the files of the CD Proceedings.
