Formatting Guidelines

[You may use paper SAMPLE in MS Word 7.0 or TeX style file.]

A "US Letter" page size, 8.5 in (21.59 cm) by 11.0 in (27.94 cm), is used, with top, left, and right margins of 0.75in (1.905cm), and a bottom margin of 1.0 in (2.54 cm). The body of the paper is set in a two-column style, with each column measuring 3.33 in (8.46 cm) with a 0.33 in (0.84 cm) column gutter between the columns.

If your standard paper size is A4, please format your document to the above margin specifications, making certain the columns are no longer than 9.25 in (23.495 cm) and trim the pages to 8.5 by 11.0 inches.

GraphiCon-999 accepts papers which are a maximum of eight (8) pages in length, with b&w illustrations within the body of the paper.

Do not use page numbers on the paper -- the papers will be collected as part of the conference proceedings and will be numbered at press time. It is important that the author write their name and the ordering -- "Smith, page 1 of 8" for example -- on the reverse of each page of the camera-ready copy sent in. This will help ensure the proper pagination and printing of the paper.

The title of the paper should be formatted with initial caps: for example, "Weaving Threads For The Web."

Section headings should be numbered for ease of internal referencing.

Body text should be set in a serif typeface such as Times, and should be 10-point text on 11-point leading (space between lines). Heading text should be set in a sans serif typeface such as Helvetica or Arial, with the following specifications:

Title and author information should be centered above the two columns on the first page of the document, with brief author and affiliation information. Detailed information about the author(s) -- postal addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, etc. -- should be placed at the end of the paper immediately after the REFERENCES.


The paper should have a short (no more than 250 words) -- one to several paragraphs -- abstract as the first section of the paper, which may be excerpted for reference or promotional purposes.


Relevant keywords should be placed just after the ABSTRACT.
