This section must be left blank in the first submitted manuscript as it
is required only when the paper is accepted.
Skip 2 lines before starting the ABSTRACT
The paper begins with an abstract of not more than
words (for regular paper) or 50-100
words (for correspondence). Include
the word "ABSTRACT" with #10 Bold and all capital letters, at
the left edge of the column. Then leave ½ lines before the body text of the abstract. At
the first line of the body, skip one tab (tab size = 0.6 cm or 0.25"), then
start the text with font size #10, normal text. Leave one line before starting Keywords.
The word "Keywords" is
font size #10 bold, starting at the left edge of the column and the body text is
font size #10. For example, Keywords:
Adaptive Antenna, Simulated Annealing Algorithm, Circuit Level Partition. After
that leave one line before starting the first heading, which is usually
For the ordering of section headings, use Arabic numerals without decimal
notation and start with number one (1.) "1.
INTRODUCTION" at the left edge of the column.
Leave a single space between the order number and the heading caption.
All headings are font size #10, bold, capital type.
Leave ½ lines and use one tab before starting the body of the text,
which should be font size #10 Times New Roman.
Try to keep the text full in each column.
To start another paragraph, use a new line without any additional line
spacing, but use one tab on the first line of the paragraph.
Leave one line before starting another section heading or subsection
For the ordering of subsection headings, use Arabic numerals with decimal
notation. Leave a single space
between the order number and the sub-heading caption. Words in the sub-heading
caption are font size #10 and the first letter in each word is capitalized.
Before starting the body of the text, leave ½ line, then begin the first
line by using one tab. Leave one line before starting another section heading or
subsection heading. The position of
a sub-heading caption and the body of the text are similar to those of a section
Before and after an equation (or a group
of equations), leave ¾ - 1 lines. Fonts and other
regulations follow the default of LATEX (or equivalent).
All mathematical notations must be defined in the text when they first
appear. Equations should be
centered and the equation numbers should use only Arabic numerals without
decimal notation, inside parentheses placed at the right edge of the column.
Before figures and after figure captions, skip one line. If possible, figures
should fit in one column and be centered. Figures
are allowed to span over two columns only when it is necessary.
Photographs should be black and white, with good contrast.
Texts in a figure or photograph should be large enough to be legible.
Every figure title must have a number, which is an Arabic numeral without
decimal notation. The description
or explanation should not be more than two lines placed below the figure.
If it consists of only one line, it should be centered.
Otherwise, it should be left justified, with the following lines
indented. Start the caption with "Fig. 1:",
using font size #10, bold and
one space between "Fig. 1:" and the description.
The description should also use font size #10, italic,
not bold, with the first letter of each word
capitalized. For example: Fig.
1: Plot of Frequency Spectrum.
Similar to figures but the caption must be placed above the table, for example: Table
1: Attenuation (dB) Measured at Different Angles.
In the body of the text, use brackets to cite a reference and put
Arabic numerals inside the brackets. The
order of the reference list will follow the sequence of references cited in the
text. If a citation refers to
several references, they can all be included in one pair brackets, for example,
[1-6]. In the reference list, use
font size #10. Start with brackets,
with numbering inside the brackets in an increasing order.
Then leave a single space before starting the text.
This section should be justified on both sides, with the following lines
indented. The examples below are
references for an article from a book, a journal, a paper presented in a
conference (proceedings), and a thesis.
