All the submissions need to be done electronically using the submission form in this website.
1. All manuscripts must be in English. They must be in "LETTER" format (21.59 x 27.94 cm, or, 8.5 x 11 inch). Manuscripts in A4 format will not be accepted.
2. COLUMNS. The paper title and author name(s) and affiliation(s) should be centered in one-column format. Your abstract and the remainder of the paper should be in two-column format. Figures or tables may span both columns, if necessary. If the last page is not filled, please divide the data into two equal columns.
Columns in the two-column format are to be 3-1/4 inches wide (8.3 cm), with a 3/8-inch (0.8 cm) space between columns, for a total print area width of 6-7/8 inches (17.5 cm). The length of the print area of any page must not exceed 8-7/8 inches (22.5 cm).
3. MARGINS. Top and bottom margins should be 1-1/16 inch (2.5 cm). Left and right margins should be 13/16 inches (2.1 cm).PLEASE NOTE: The above measurements are not precise, and minor variations from these measurements are acceptable.
4. TITLE. The main title should be 14-point boldface Times or Times Roman, centred over both columns, followed by two blank 12-point lines. In the main title, initially capitalize nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs; do not capitalize articles, coordinate conjunctions, and prepositions (unless the title begins with such a word).
5. AUTHOR NAME(S)/AFFILIATION(S). The author name(s) and affiliation(s) should be 12-point non-boldface Times or Times Roman, centred below the title, followed by two blank 12-point lines.
6. ABSTRACT. The abstract heading is to be 11-point boldface, initially capitalized, and centred within the column. The abstract should be 10-point italicized Times or Times Roman, and may be up to 150 words. Leave two blank lines between the abstract and the heading of your first section.
7. TEXT - STYLE, SIZE, AND SPACING. Normal text is to be single spaced 10-point Times or Times Roman. The first line of each paragraph is to be indented approximately 1/4 inch (0.5 cm), and the entire text is to be fully justified-that is, flush left and flush right. Do not place additional line spacing between paragraphs.
FIRST-ORDER HEADINGS. First-order headings (for example, 1: Introduction) are to be 12-point boldface Times or Times Roman, flush left, with one blank line before, and one blank line after.
SECOND-ORDER HEADINGS. Second-order headings (for example, 1.1: Database elements) are to be 11-point boldface Times or Times Roman, flush left, with one blank line before, and one blank line after.
THIRD-ORDER HEADINGS. If you require a third-order heading (we discourage it), then it is to be 10-point boldface Times or Times Roman, preceded by one blank line, and followed by a period and normal text on same line.
(9) FIGURES AND TABLES. Figures and tables may fit across both columns, if necessary.
(10) CAPTIONS. Figure and table captions should be 10-point boldface Helvetica, centred below the figure or table.
(11) COLOR. Although you may submit a file with colour images, your paper will be printed in black and white unless you are specifically informed otherwise. Please consider this when creating graphs, charts, etc.
(12) FOOTNOTES. Place footnotes at the bottom of the column in which they are referenced (not full width across two columns). Use single-spaced 8-point Times or Times Roman. To help readers, avoid footnotes altogether and include necessary peripheral observations in your text (within parentheses, if you prefer, as in this sentence).
(13) REFERENCES. List and number all bibliographical references at the end of your paper in single-spaced 9-point Times or Times Roman. When citing within the text, enclose the citation number in square brackets (for example, ). The reference style should be the IEEE style.
