      Authors are required to prepare their manuscripts in accordance with the specifications in this instruction. Please send your manuscripts (both .doc and .pdf files) as an attachment to by February 15, 2017.

      This pattern contains all the styles that should be used in the paper. The detailed instructions are given below.

      Your Abstract should not exceed fourteen lines.

      Keywords: You can include up to two lines of keywords, we recommend using the keywords list from any of the relevant IEEE Transactions.

      1.  PAGE FORMAT


      Regular manuscripts should be 3-4 pages (3 pages if one author is student or graduate student). Invited papers should be 4-6 pages.

      1.2. PAPER LAYOUT

      The paper layout is already set in this pattern. You shouldn’t change margin settings or use “Section break” (consider using “Column break” or “Page break” instead).

      2. STYLES

      2.1. PREAMBLE

      Normally you needn’t set the styles for the preamble since all of them are already set (it is better to place your text instead of formatting).


      • Paper title should be formatted with the style “01_TITLE”, (you can use button “Title” (the leftmost) at the provided panel). If you need intentionally break your title at some place you should use line break (Shift + Enter) as shown in the title. The title should be as concise as possible – generally no more than two lines.
      • Authors’ names should be formatted with the style “01_Authors”, (you can use button “Auth” at the provided panel). Separate the initials with non-breaking spaces. If several authors have different affiliation, place a superscripted number before each name. Separate the names with commas, before the last one place “and” (with previous comma if there were more than one name before).
      • Authors’ affiliations and addresses should be formatted with the style “03_Affiliations”, (you can use button “Affil” at the provided panel). You may provide either e-mail of a corresponding author only, or e-mails of each author if needed.
      • Abstract heading. You should simply leave this heading unchanged.
      • Abstract body should be formatted with the style “05_Abstract_Body”, (you can use button “AbstBody” at the provided panel). Your abstract should not exceed fourteen lines.
      • Keywords should not exceed two lines. We recommend using commonly recognizable keywords that can be found for example in any index of any relevant IEEE Transactions. Use the style “07_Keywords_Paragraph” (or button “Key-Par”)

      2.2. BODY TEXT

      For the first paragraph after any heading use the style “11_1st_Normal” or the button “1Norm”. This style also can be used if you need an ordinary paragraph without indentation (e.g. after a formula).

      For any subsequent paragraphs use the style “12_next_Normal” or the button “nNorm”.

      For headings use the following styles:

      • Main section headings: style “08_Section_Heading” (button “SectHead”).
      • First-level subheadings: style “09_1st_SubHeading” (button “1SubHead”).
      • Second-level subheadings: style “10_2nd_SubHeading” (button “2SubHead”).

      2.2.1. This is an example of a second-level subheadings.

      Please note, that all the headings should be numbered (see example of numbering in this paper). It is at author’s responsibility to check numbering.

      3. CONTENT

      Below are some more tips regarding the text layout

      • Use the bullets like here. You can use button “Bull” at the provided panel.
      • Insert only a single space after a sentence.
      • If necessary for clarity, you may include a glossary of mathematical symbols etc. under an unnumbered heading ‘Notation’ after the Acknowledgements.
      • Do not use automatic footnotes or any special/hidden coding. Avoid excessive formatting. Turn off “fast save” and “revisions.”

      3.1. UNITS

      Use SI units wherever appropriate. Use ‘ms-1’ rather than m/s.

      3.2. EQUATIONS

      We highly recommend using MathType for typesetting equations. If this commercial product is unavailable at your computer then use the standard Equation Editor that is supplied with a MS Word. Use MathType formulas for math whenever possible in text instead of simple text. For those who will use MathType we recommend using the MathType equation preferences from the file “TeX Look.eqp” (use menu item Preferences / Equation Preferences / Load from File…). Those who use Equation Editor should specify the font size 10 pt.

      Number all equations at the right edge of their column. If using MathType you can make use of automatic numbering, but specify the equation number format like this (single equation number without section/chapter number)


      Equations should fit in a single column, even if they span two lines.


      Use style “13_Display_Equation” (button “DispEq” at the pannel) for formatting display equations.


      Illustrations must be inserted into the document in a floatable table as shown. The table with the figure should be aligned at the bottom or top of the margins at the centre of column. We recommend copying the provided table into the place where you first refer to your figure and then replace the figure with yours and the capture with corresponding text. Surely you can place more than one figure in a table by adding rows. The figure caption should be formatted with style “14_Figure_Caption” (button “Fig” at the pannel).

      Illustrations should mostly fit in a single column, as below (Fig. 1). If necessary, a figure can span over two columns (Fig. 2). All illustrations should be referred to in the text as above. It is desired to keep all figures attached to the top or bottom margin.

      Fig. 1.  A very long caption for this figure, that can’t fit in one line.

      Captions should be concise, leaving full explanation to the text.

      Files with all the figures should be attached to your manuscript in one of the following formats: eps, emf, jpg, gif, tiff.

      Photographs should be screened and appear clear when reproduced at a resolution of 300 dots per inch.

      Figures prepared with MS Word drawing capabilities should be avoided, or if used, they should be placed at a separate figure. To do this, you should go to the menu item “Insert/Object” and choose “Microsoft Word Picture”. Then you can draw your figure or copy it from another place. After you close your figure it will appear in your document. This method allows creating a portable picture (like in Fig. 2) that does not depend on the provided styles.

      3.4. TABLES

      Tables may span one or two columns. All tables except for small ones should be as far as possible attached to the top or bottom margins.

      Table captions should be at the top of each table, but otherwise conform to the specifications for illustrations. Use style “15_Table_Caption” (button “Tabl” at the panel) for the table caption. If the cells doesn’t contain any complex formatting then we recommend using style “18_Table_Cell” (button “Cell” at the panel).

      Table 1.  A very long table caption that can’t be fit-ted within one line.

      Cell 11    Cell 12
      Cell 21    Cell 22
      Cell 31    Cell 32


      Please take great care to ensure references are properly and fully included in your manuscript. They are the most common source of drafting faults in papers.

      Fig. 2.  An example of a figure that spans over two columns. This is a very long caption for this figure, that can’t fit in one line.

      The following system should be used for citing publications in the text and listing their details at the end of the manuscript:

      Citations should be made in the convenient way in square brackets like these [1], [1-15, 17], [1, p.23], [1, Eq.2].

      “Personal communication” contributions should appear in an Acknowledgment at the end of the paper.

      All references cited should be listed at the end of the paper (or prior to any Appendix, if included). See the ‘References’ section of this paper for examples of listing references.

      The list of references should be formatted with the style “17_Reference_List” (button “RefList”).


      The conference proceedings are not intended as a marketing opportunity and should not be treated as such. Brand names, trade marks, logos etc. should only be used where they are important to the understanding of the paper.

      Any claims about the performance or quality of a product or service should not use superlatives but be demonstrated by data.


      The author is responsible for all material contained in the manuscript they submit. Co-authors should agree to the submission of the paper.


      Acknowledgment by the author of the use of material from an outside source is a condition of such use, as well as a courtesy. Wherever possible, it should be made not only in the Acknowledgments section but also at the place or places in the text where the material is included.
