While formatting your document, make sure you use consistent use of punctuation marks and spelling. There are two basic systems used by American and British authors, we'll accept either American or British usage, but it must be consistent, ie. Not a mix. For example,

Putting commas and periods outside of quotation marks, e.g. ", and". Instead of , "and." The latter is American usage and the former is British.

Use of single quotes, E.g. 'service centre' (British) rather than "service center" (American),

Or text such as grey and disc (British) vs. Gray and disk (American).


The paper is in one column format. Please follow the following style guide:

Paper title: This information should be placed at the top of the first page in 14 point Times New Roman in Uppercase, bold, and centered. This style is defined under the style menu of this document as "TITLE".

For example, do not submit one paper as Aşkıner Güngör and the other as A. Güngör. Be consistent, the name you provide on the paper will be what is used to create the author index for the proceedings.

Information for each author such as email, department or college or university; city, state and zip will be listed as a footnote. The footnote text should be 9 pt. Times New Roman, full justified, no space between the paragraphs. This style is defined under the style menu of this document as "Footnote text". (This is the only footnote allowed in the paper). To insert a footnote in Word place the curser at the end of the name and select the "Insert" menu and select "footnote" using the bottom of the page and auto numbering options.

Figure and Table headings: 11 point Times New Roman UPPERCASE (use All Caps), centered; place below the Figure and above the Table, (this style is defined under the style menu of this document as "Figure Heading"). Leave one blank line above and below each Table or Figure.

If you insert the link instead of the figure or table, a box with a big red x will appear in the location where the table or figure is supposed to be located. If you allow tables to break rows across pages be sure to repeat table header rows and use continued in brackets. Like Table 1.
