Judging criteria

Paper presentation Guidelines (How to do?)

The general format for technical paper presentation followed by major engineering colleges and technical institutions:

Use the word “Abstract” as the title, in 12-point Times, boldface type, centered relative to the column, initially capitalized. The abstract is to be in 10-point, single-spaced type. Leave two blank lines after the abstract, and then begin the main text.

Abstract should not be more than 200 words.

Main Title
       The main title (on the first page) should begin 1-3/8 inches (3.49 cm) from the top edge of the page, centered, and in Times 14-point, boldface type. Leave two blank lines after the title.

Author names and affiliations are to be centered beneath the title and printed in Times 12-point, non-boldface type. Multiple authors may be shown in a two- or three-column format, with their affiliations below their respective names. Affiliations are to be centered below each author name, italicized, not bold. Include e-mail addresses if possible. Author information should be followed by two blank lines before main text.

Type your main text in 10-point Times, single-spaced. Do not use double-spacing. Be sure your text is fully justified—that is, flush left and flush right. Please do not place any additional blank lines between paragraphs.

First-order headings, for example, ”1.Introduction” , should be Times 12-point boldface, initially capitalized, flush left, with one blank line before, and one blank line after. Use a period (“.”) after the heading number, not a colon.

Second-order headings should be Times 11-point boldface, initially capitalized, flush left, with one blank line before, and one after.

List and number all bibliographical references in 9-point Times, single-spaced, at the end of your paper. When referenced in the text, enclose the citation number in square brackets.
