Abstract Submission


Author Information

The manuscript submission deadline is Monday, June 1, 2015 (Midnight, Taiwan Standard Time, GMT+8). Manuscripts will be reviewed by the Program Committee, which reserves the right to reject manuscripts that do not conform to these guidelines.

Each paper is limited to 2 pages. Authors should use this extended abstract template and should be submitted in Microsoft Word format. This template creates a document on 210-mm by 297-mm paper (A4) with margins, indentation, line spacing, column widths, and other dimensions. It is convenient to replace the text sections in this template. The pre-defined style will adjust your fonts and line spacing. Font sizes and line spacing should not be changed to accommodate page limits.

The extended abstract should be in two-column format. You may insert extra spaces between sections to balance the lengths of columns. In formatting the page, set the top margin to 20 mm, the bottom margin to 17 mm, the left margin to 15 mm, and the right margin to 15 mm. This gives a column length of 260 mm. Left- and right-justify your columns. The column width is 88 mm. The space between the two columns is 4 mm. Paragraph indentation is 8.5 mm.

Use New Times Roman font for the text; 24 point for the title; 12 point for the authors; 12 point bold for the abstract; and 10 point for tables, table and figure captions, footnotes, and references.
