Abstract requirements

Layout recommendations for the one page summary:
  • Paper size: A4 format (210mm X 297mm)
  • Margins: left & right = 25 mm, top & bottom = 25 mm
  • Format: .docx
  • Title: use 14pt Times bold letters centred on the page, with title Case formatting (example: Quantum Optics Information) –  Elements and acronyms should be capitalized.
  • List all authors’ names, organisation/affiliation & mailing address under the title.
  • Centre author name(s) on one line. Use 10-point, bold font. Author names should include first and middle names or initials followed by surname. Their affiliations must be indicated through the use of appropriate superscripts.
  • Centre author affiliation(s) on the following lines. Use 8-point, italic font. Affiliations should follow the format: division, organization, address. Do not use abbreviations.
Main text

The first line of the first paragraph of a section or subsection should start flush left. The first line of subsequent paragraphs within the section or subsection should be indented 0.5 cm.


Tables should be centred and numbered consecutively. Table titles should be centred above the table and in a 10-point font. If the title is more than one line, it should have margins that match the width of the table. Tables should be positioned as close as possible to where they are mentioned in the main text.


Figures should also be placed as close as possible to where they are mentioned in the text. All the figures should be centred, except for small figures less than 6 cm in width, which may be placed side by side. No part of a figure should extend beyond the typing area. Text should not wrap around figures. The figures can be provided in greyscale or colour, but remember that they will be printed in black-white colors.

Figure captions should be centred beneath figures and in an 8-point font. Figure captions should be indented 1 cm on both sides and justified on both right and left sides.


Equations should be centred, unless they are so long that less than 1 cm will be left between the end of the equation and the equation number, in which case they may run on to the next line. Equation numbers should only appear to the right of the last line of the equation, in parentheses. For long equations, the equation number may appear on the next line. For very long equations, the right side of the equation should be broken into approximately equal parts and aligned to the right of the equal sign.


References should appear at the end of the article in the order in which they are referenced in the body of the paper. The font should be 8 point, and the references should be aligned left.

Within the main text, references should be designated by a number in brackets [1], and they should precede a comma or period [2]. Two references cited at once should be included together [2,3], separated by a comma, while three or more consecutive references should be indicated by the bounding numbers and a dash [1–3].

For journal articles, authors are listed first, followed by the article’s full title in quotes, the journal’s title abbreviation, the volume number in bold, page number, and the year in parentheses.

For citation of a book as a whole: authors, followed by title in italics, and publisher, city, and year in parenthesis.

[2] G. P. Agrawal, Nonlinear Fiber Optics, 3rd. ed., (Academic Press, Boston, 2001).

For citation of a book chapter, authors are listed first, followed by book title in italics, editors, and publisher, city, and year in parenthesis. Chapter number may be added if applicable.

[3] R. Kienberger and F. Krausz in, Few-cycle laser pulse generation and its applications, F.X. Kärtner ed. (Springer Verlag, Berlin, 2004).

For citation of proceedings, follow the individual proceedings format:

[4] Author(s), “Title of paper,” in Title of Proceeding, Ed(s) Name(s), Proc. format ……

  • Acknowledgments, job descriptions and footnotes should not be included in the summary.
  • Do not add any page number. Do not use hyphens at the end of a line.
Please take care of the following hints:
  • Do not use CAPITAL WORDS for example in author names or the title (except for common acronyms).
  1. Do not write TRANSPORT AND OPTICS IN HIGH MAGNETIC FIELDS but Transport and optics in high magnetic fields. Do not write PETER SMITH but Peter Smith
  2. Do not write EUROPEAN PHYSICAL SOCIETY, Mulhouse, FRANCE but European Physical Society, Mulhouse, France
  • Be sure to not exchange the first name and the surname. Otherwise you will be listed by your first name in the author index.
  • Prefer to use full first names. Middle initials can be added after the first name. Do not state academic titles.
  • Submit all the authors’ information and add as many authors as required.
  • You need to upload a one page abstract in DOCX/DOC format.

These recommendations are intended to avoid technical problems in the transferral of your abstract to the conference digest. Failure to follow these recommendations may result in abstract being returned to authors.
