Paper Preparation Guidelines and Instructions  

In the following you will find guidelines, instructions and templates for preparing your full paper to WPMC’01 electronically. We suggest that you print out and read this information carefully before downloading the template packages.

 

General Information  

It is very important that you observe the deadline for full paper submission very strictly.
The deadline is June 30th, 2001.

Below is given the instructions for the preparation of your paper. However, we strongly advise you to use the added templates.

All papers must be in English 

The paper must consist of maximum six (6) pages.

In order to achieve the optimum visual experience for both the Proceedings and the CD-ROM, we strongly recommend using Times-Roman font (the LaTex and Word template files use Times-Roman). This is necessary in order to give the Proceedings a uniform look.

The paper must be in the following format:  

  • All papers must be in English

  • The paper must consist of maximum six (6) pages.

  • In order to achieve the optimum visual experience for both the Proceedings and the CD-ROM, we strongly recommend using Times-Roman font (the LaTex and Word template files use Times-Roman). This is necessary in order to give the Proceedings a uniform look.

  • The paper must be in the following format:

  • Single-spaced

  • Two (2) columns

  • Printed in black ink

  • No smaller than nine (9)-point type font throughout the paper, including figure captions. In nine-point type font capital letters are 2 mm high.

  • Do NOT include headers and footers. The page numbers, session numbers and conference identification will be post processed automatically at the time of the printing of the Proceedings.

  • Any text or other material outside the following margins will not be printed:

  • All text and figures must be contained in a 170 mm x 235 mm image area

  • The left margin must be 20 mm

  • The spacing between columns must be 10 mm

  • The top margin must be 25 mm (except the first page with 30 mm to the title top)

  • For 9-point type font, there should be no more than 3.2 lines/cm (8 lines/inches) vertically. This is a minimum spacing; 2.75 lines/cm (7 lines/inches) will make the paper much more readable. Larger type sizes require correspondingly larger vertical spacing.

  • Paper title – write the paper title in boldface. Capitalize all non-function words, and write all other words in the title in lower case. Centre the paper title across the top of the two columns on the first page as indicated above.

  • Author’s name(s) – centre the author’s name(s) and affiliation(s) below the paper title. If space permits it, include your postal address, e-mail address and an optional hyperlink. The templates indicate the area where the title and author information should go. This information does not need be strictly confined to the number of lines indicated; papers with multiple authors and affiliations may require two or more lines for this information.

  • Abstract – each paper must contain an abstract at the beginning of the paper.

  • Keywords – each paper may contain optional keywords listed as a small paragraph after the abstract.

  • Major headings – write major headings in boldface with the first word capitalized and the rest of the heading in lower case.

  • Examples of the various levels of headings are included in the templates.

  • Sub headings – write sub headings in the same format as major headings. Place them in the left margin of the column.

  • Sub-sub headings – write sub-sub headings in the same format as sub headings but in italics instead of boldface.

  • Illustrations – place illustrations within the designated margins and position them within the paper margins. They may span the two columns. If possible, position illustrations at the top of the columns rather than in the middle or at the bottom. Caption and number every illustration. All half tone or colour illustrations must be clear when printed in black and white. Make line drawings in black ink on white paper.

  • References – number and list all references at the end of the paper. List the references in order of appearance in the document. When referring to them in the text, type the corresponding reference number in square brackets as shown at the end of this sentence [1].

  • [1] P. Taylor and A.W.Black, “Speech Synthesis by phonological structure matching” ESCA, Eurospeech99. ISSN 1018-4074, pp.623-626, 1999 (This is done automatically when using the LaTex template).

  • NOTE: for the WPMC’01 CD-ROM Proceedings: The conference organisers will auto-generate pdf-files directly from the submitted PostScript files. Colours included in the PostScript files will be reproduced in the files of the CD-ROM Proceedings.

  • Make a test printout of your paper and check that the positioning (left and top margins) as well as other layout features are correct.

Thank you for following all of these instructions carefully. If you have any questions or comments concerning the submission, please do not hesitate to contact the conference organisers at wpmc01@wpmc01.cpk.auc.dk

Microsoft Word Template  

If your paper will be written using Microsoft Word, template packages tmpl_97.zip (for Microsoft Word97 or later) are available, producing the proper format.

You will find the following files:

  • Tmpl_97.dot (Word97 template)

  • PostScript and PDF versions generated from the template. The PDF example can be accessed directly: tmpl_97.pdf.

However, note that you need to submit the paper as a PostScript file.


How to produce a PostScript file from MS Word:

If you are using MS Windows, you should install a PostScript printer driver for a PostScript printer such as HP LaserJet 5/5 PostScript (from the “Settings” menu choose “Printers” and then “Add Printer”). MS Windows has drivers available for many PostScript printers so you do not need to get a specific driver from a vendor. From MS Word you then select the printer and print to a file (An option in the printing pop-up window) and then you have a PostScript file. For some printer drivers the PostScript file may have the extension “.prn”. If this is the case, we would appreciate it if you would rename the file to have the extension “.ps” before submitting.


LaTex Template  

If your paper will be typeset using LaTex, please download the template package tmpl_la.zip that produces the proper format. In the package, you will find the following files:    

  • Tmpl_la.tex (LaTex template)

  • Wpmc_01.sty (style file to be used with the template)

  • Figure.eps (example figure used in the template)

  • PostScript and PDF versions generated from the template. The PDF example can be accessed directly here: tmpl_la.pdf.

  • However, note that you need to submit the paper as a PostScript file.

The LaTex templates distributed for WPMC’01 have been generated using the tetex-1.0.7 distribution for Unix/Linux.  
This distribution is the recommended distribution to use.  

You may consult the CTAN (Comprehensive TeX Archive Network) at http://www.ctan.org or http://www.tex.ac.uk or http://sunsite.dk/pub/tex/ctan for recent updates and style files.
