Important note for the authors

The use of color in figures is discouraged as the proceedings are printed in black and white. Authors should be careful in submitting color figures as some may not reproduce well in black and white.


Acknowledgments should be positioned at the end of the paper, before the reference section. This section is reserved for institutional journal paper number (if required by the author’s institution) and funding sources.


Number all cited literature sequentially. When citing references in the text, use square brackets [ ] to enclose reference numbers.
