The following paper is intended to set out style guidelines for the Camera Ready Copies of papers for the ISDA'02 proceedings. 

1.  Introduction

ISDA'02 authors are requested to submit, before April 30, 2002 the camera ready version of the paper (not exceeding 6 pages) in accordance with the reviewers comments. Please note that each additional page costs US$50.00 per page. Please type each paper single spaced on one side of 8.5x11 size paper with one inch margin on all sides and mail to: 

M. Sambandham, 

ICNPSC2, Department of Mathematics, 

Morehouse College, 

Atlanta, GA 30314, 


Authors also have to submit a signed copy right form along with each manuscript. ISDA'02 proceedings will be reproduced from the camera-ready copy of author's manuscript. The manuscript should be typed in one column on white sheets of paper with dark, sharp and clear letter quality type and must remain legible. The title of the manuscript should be typed in bold size of the same font type. Do not type page numbers. Use pencil to write page numbers on top right corners.

 2. Sections and Subsections

2.1. Sections
Titles of all principal Sections, Acknowledgement and References should be typed bold in the same font as the manuscript. References should be indexed  1,2, shown below. Proportional serif fonts such as Times New Roman  are preferred for printing and for on-line viewing of papers. Times New Roman is recommended in this guide for this very purpose.

Table 1. Type sizes for Camera Ready Papers

Type size (pts.) Regular Bold
12   Section titles  , reference title, abstract title
10 tables table names
10 Authors’ affiliations, abstract content, main text, equations  
12   Author names
16   Paper title

2.1.1 Subsections
Title of subsections should be typed bold left edge adjusted with the same font as the manuscript.

3. Text

Paragraphs should have 0.3 inch indent. First paragraph in a section/subsection or after expression or Figure should be typed without indent. Type all equations. Enumerate in Arabic numerals in parenthesis flush with margin. Number display equations consecutively. 

All acknowledgements for technical and financial support should go in the special section, which follows the text but precedes the references.

 4. Preparation and Camera Ready Illustrations

Proper figure (Black & White only) preparation is essential for optimum reproduction of line drawing and photograph. Figures and Tables should be placed as part of the text and should be numbered.
