4 Type Style and Size of Text

The text font is 10-point Times-Roman (or a closely resembling font), single-space with 12-point interline spacing, in a two-column format. All paragraphs should be indented 1-pica, and the entire text should be right and left justified.

5 Titles and Headings

The main title should be Times-Roman 14-point boldface type, and centered over both columns. In main titles, please initially capitalize nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs; do not capitalize articles, coordinate conjunctions, and prepositions (unless the title begins with such a word).

The author name(s) and affiliation(s) should be in 12-point Times-Roman, initially capitalized, and centered over both columns.

5.1 Abstract

The submission should begin with an abstract, followed by a set of keywords; the abstract and keywords should be placed the left column of the first page.

The heading over the abstract (for example, ``Abstract'') should be Times-Roman 12-point boldface, initially capitalized.

5.2 First-Order Headings

First-order headings (for example, ``1 Introduction'') should be Times-Roman 12-point boldface, initially capitalized, flush left, preceded by a blank line.

5.3 Second-Order Headings

Second-order headings (for example, ``1.1 Background'') should be Times-Roman 10-point boldface, initially capitalized, flush left, preceded by a blank line. Higher-order headings are the same as second-order headings.

Figures may span both columns, if necessary, but text must conform to the two-column format. If figures include color images (for example, hardcopies of a color display), we recommend to convert them to grayscale or halftone images in the Camera-Ready manuscript.

Please note that figures will be printed in grayscale in Proceedings. Color images are acceptable, but can only be viewed in WWW publication.
