\end{displaymath} (1)


A list of references should appear at the end of the paper. Number all references consecutively with Arabic numerals in square brackets. When referring to them in the text, type the corresponding reference number in square brackets as [1].

LATEXStyle File

Creating PDF files


As mentioned above, only electronic submission of papers in PDF format is accepted. There are several methods for creating PDF files: Adobe Distiller, PDFWriter, ps2pdf, dvipdfm, pdflatex, and so on. Generally Adobe Distiller provides higher quality output than others, and is therefore preferred.

Before submission, please make sure that all fonts are embedded into the PDF file you have created. To view the font information for a PDF, open the file in an Adobe Reader, go to the File menu, select Document Info, and then Fonts. The Font Info dialog box displays font information.
