The following are guidelines and templates for submitting
your paper to WASPAA'01 electronically. I suggest that you print and read
this information carefully before downloading the template packages. Enjoy!
If the paper is typeset using
LaTeX, please download the template package latex.zip
that produces the proper format. In the package, you will find the following
If your paper is written using Microsoft Word, download the template package
This template will work with Microsoft Word 97 and 2000 for Windows,
as well as Word 98 and 2001 for Macintosh. In this package, you
will find the following files (example is for Word97):
- latex1.tex (LaTex template for author(s) with single affiliation)
- latex2.tex (LaTex template for authors with two or more affiliations)
- waspaa01.sty (style file to be used with the templates)
- dir.eps (figure used in the template files)
- IEEEbib.bst (bibliography layout file to be used with the templates)
- Postscript and PDF versions of the two templates
- word1.doc (Word97 template for author(s) with single affiliation)
- word2.doc (Word97 template for authors with two or more affiliations)
- PDF versions of the two templates
- All manuscripts must be in English.
- The paper must be no longer than four (4) pages. It may be shorter.
- To achieve the best viewing experience both for the printed proceedings and the CD-ROM,
we strongly encourage authors to use the Times-Roman font (the LaTeX style file as well
as the Word template files use Times-Roman). In addition, this will give the proceedings
a more uniform look.
- If you are using LaTeX, please use the PostScript versions of the Computer
Modern and AMS Math fonts, available from the AMS website. This will ensure
that viewing of equations will be scalable in online documents.
- Authors should submit files that will be printed exactly as received, without
any additional formatting or scaling required.
- The paper should be in the following format:
- Two (2) columns
- Printed in black ink
- No smaller than nine (9) point type font throughout the paper, including
figure captions. In nine point type font, capital letters are 2 mm high.
- Please do NOT change the headers and footers. The page numbers will be changed
automatically from the electronic submission documents.
- Any text or other material outside the following margins
will not be printed (except for header and footer):
- All text and figures must be contained in a 175 mm x 226 mm (6.9 inch x 8.9 inch)
image area (not including headers and footers given in the template files)
- The inside margin (two-sided printing) must be 22mm (.85 inches)
- The outside margin should be 19mm (.75 inches) for US Letter size.
- The top margin has to be 25mm (1.0 inch).
- Center each page within this image area in a two-column format.
- Please follow the style of the sample paper that is included with regard
to title, authors, addresses, abstract, heading, and subheadings.
Page numbers, session numbers, and conference identification will be inserted
when the paper is included in the proceedings.
- Please format the paper for US Letter size (8.5 in x 11 in, 216 mm x 280 mm)
white paper. If you must format for A4-size paper, please maintain the
top and inside margins as well as the printable area (175mm
x 226mm) as specified and as found in the templates.
- The first page should have the paper title, author(s), and affiliation(s)
centered on the page across both columns, as indicated in the template. The remainder of the text must be
in the two-column format, staying within the indicated image area.
Thank you for following all of these instructions carefully! If you have any questions or comments concerning
the submission, please don't hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
- Paper Title - The paper title has to appear in boldface capital letters,
centered across the top of the two columns on the first page as indicated above.
The placement of the title should be immediately below the top
- Authors' Name(s) - The authors' name(s) and affiliation(s) appear below the
title in capital and lower case letters. The templates indicate the area where
the title and author information should go. These items need not be strictly
confined to the number of lines indicated; papers with multiple authors and
affiliations, for example, may require two or more lines for this information.
- Abstract - Each paper should contain an abstract that appears at the
beginning of the paper.
- Major Headings - Major headings appear in capital letters, bold face,
centered in the column. Examples of the various levels of headings are included
in the templates.
- Sub Headings - Sub headings appear in capital and lower case, in boldface.
They start at the left margin on a separate line.
- Sub-Sub Headings - Sub-sub headings
appear in capital and lower case, indented like a paragraph and on a separate
line. They are in italics.
- References - List and number
all references at the end of the paper. The references are numbered
in order of appearance in the document. When referring to them in the text,
type the corresponding reference number in square brackets as shown at
the end of this sentence .

vol. ASSP-36, pp. 1932-1948, 1988.
- Illustrations and Figures - Illustrations and Figures must appear
within the designated margins, and must be furnished positioned within the paper.
They may span the two columns. If possible, position illustrations at the tops of
columns, rather than in the middle or at the bottom. Caption and number every
illustration and figure. All half-tone illustrations must be clear black and
white prints. Line drawings may be made in black ink on white paper. Do not
use any colors in illustrations or figures.
- WWW URL links - Authors are encouraged include the WWW URL address in
the paper and/or abstract to refer to any online information related to the
paper, such as accompanying audio/video files, links of relevant publications,
and demos. The URL link information allows authors to share proper and updated
information with (re)viewers.
- As stated above, text should appear in two columns, each 83 mm wide with 8 mm
space between columns. On the first page, the top 50 mm (2") of both columns is
reserved for the title, author(s), and affiliation(s). These items should be
centered across both columns, starting at 25 mm (1") from the top of
the paper, as shown in the examples. The abstract should appear at the top of
the left-hand column of text, about 12 mm (1/2") below the title area and no more
than 80 mm (3-1/8") in length. Leave 12 mm (1/2") space between the end of the
abstract and the beginning of the main text.
- On the second and subsequent pages, text or figures begin at the top of the page.
- For 9-point type font, there should be no more than 3.2 lines/cm (8
lines/inch) vertically. This is a minimum spacing; 2.75 lines/cm (7 lines/inch)
will make the paper much more readable. Larger type sizes require correspondingly
larger vertical spacing.
