Abstract style
Authors must use the Abstract Template provided on page 2 of the Abstract-form-cum-Template file to type or copy-paste the contents of their Abstracts. The style-specifications described below must be adhered to, and the size of the Abstract (including display items, if any) kept confined to the two columns of the single-page Abstract Template.
· Please do not alter the margins, or the font-type (Times), to which the Abstract Template is already formatted.
· Enter the title of the Abstract by clicking on the specified line and replacing it with your title. This should be in title case, and should not have punctuation at the end. Please maintain the font size of 12 in this line.
· Enter the Authors' names in the next click-box. If there is more than one address for the Authors, the names should be followed by a superscripted number to indicate the relevant address. Please maintain the font size of 11 for this line. Name of the Presenting Author should be underlined.
· Enter Authors’ Institutional addresses (in brief) and email addresses in the next click-boxes. Email addresses should be given within brackets. Please maintain the font size of 11 for these lines. Avoid using more than one address line for any Author. Avoid providing dual Institutional addresses for any Author.
· Enter the body of the Abstract in the next click-box. Please maintain the font size of 11 all through. For text use the style BODY TEXT (11 pt plain).
