This paper should commence with an introduction to the work. In addition, the paper should include sections for research methodology, a conclusion, an acknowledgement and list of references. This document contains paragraph and character styles that will cover most formatting requirements of the final paper.

When you prepare your paper for a review, do not include all identifying information (e.g., authors’ names, affiliations, or references to these) on all submissions. Identify your paper with the ID number. But include this information later when you submit print ready final paper after your paper has been accepted for inclusion in the conference.

Submit your full-paper for the next review as a MS Word-file, which includes images with a high resolution using this word template. Identify your file name as the ID number allocated for your paper when uploading or submitting. Submit your final print ready paper, with the changes required by the reviewers and the Paper Selection Committee as a Word document using this template inserted with images.

These will make it easier to prepare the paper for publication. You will receive specifications for these later.
