# Information for Authors: Format and Templates

## Proceeding Papers

The following style files and templates are available for users of LaTeX and Microsoft Word:

We recommend that you use these MS Word file or LaTeX files to produce your document, since they have been set up to meet the formatting guidelines listed above. When using these files, double-check the paper size in your page setup to make sure you are using the letter-size paper layout (8.5" X 11"). The LaTeX environment files specify suitable margins, page layout, text, and a bibliography style.

In particular, with LaTeX, there are cases where the top-margin of the resulting Postscript or PDF file does not meet the specified parameters. In this case, you may need to add a \topmargin=0mm command just after the \begin{document} comman in your .tex file. The spacing of the top margin is not critical, as the page contents will be adjusted on the proceedings. The critical dimensions are the actual width and height of the page content.

Do not put page numbers on the papers at the submission time. Appropriate page numbers will be added to accepted papers when the conference proceedings are assembled.
