This template is designed to help you in preparing your manuscript in expected format. The guidelines include complete descriptions of the fonts, spacing and related information for creating your proceedings manuscripts. Please follow them properly.


Use this document as a template by simply typing your text into it.


Use 8.27 inch (210mm) x 11.69 inch (297mm) paper. The margins must be set as:
  • Top = Bottom = 1 inch (2.54 cm)
  • Left = Right = 0.32 inches (0.8cm)
The paper must be in a two column format of width 3.15 inches with a space of 1cm.


All paragraphs must be indented and justified.


The entire manuscript should be in Times New Roman. Other font types may be used if required only for special purposes. Refer to Table 1 for font sizes.


The title must be in 14 pt bold and be centered over both columns; the title should have 0 pts space above and 12 pts below. Every word in a title must be capitalized.

Author name must be in 12pt bold with 12pt above. Author affiliation must be in 10pt italic. E-mail address must be in 10pt. Professional positions/titles such as Research Scholar, Professor, Dr., Managing Director, Senior Member IEEE etc., are to be avoided. Each affiliation must include, at the very least, the name of the company and the name of the country where the author is based.


A maximum of 3 level headings should be used. Every word in a heading must be capitalized except for prepositions and conjunctions.

3.4.1 First Order Heading:

A First order heading must be 12pt bold, Times New Roman, left justified and numbered (1,2,3,…). Each word must be capitalized except prepositions and conjunctions.

3.4.2 Second Order Heading:

A Second order heading must be 11pt bold, Times New Roman, left justified and numbered (2.1, 2.2, 2.3,…). Each word must be capitalized except prepositions and conjunctions.

3.4.3 Third Order Heading:

A Third order heading must be 10pt bold, italic, Times New Roman, left justified and numbered (3.2.1, 3.2.2, 3.2.3,…). The first letter of each word must be capitalized except prepositions and conjunctions. It must end with a colon.


Each table should have its own short title above the table and right after the number of the table. Tables are numbered consecutively from the beginning of the article using Arabic numerals. In general, tables should fit within one column of the two-column format. However, it is acceptable on occasions, to make the table cover the entire width of the page. Figures include pictures, drawings and graphs of the article. Just like tables, figures are numbered sequentially using Arabic numerals. However, the titles for figures are BELOW the figure (unlike tables). Figures may also be of such a size that they cannot fit within a column of the two-column format. If that is the case, then the figure may spread across the page. Figures should appear within the body of the article in close proximity to the text that is referred to.

Clearly label all graphs with proper units, axes titles, and scales. Check that the resolution is adequate to reveal the important detail in the figure. Please check your paper on a black and white hardcopy and ensure that the images used are clear and all text labels are legible. Captions of a single line must be centered whereas multi-line captions must be justified.


  • A copy of tables and figures which are used has to be sent separately along with the soft copy of the manuscript (with figures and tables).
  • All the figures must be in either Grayscale or Black & White (preferably) for the printed version. However, it does not concern for e-journals.


If you are using Microsoft Word, use Microsoft Equation Editor for equations in your paper. The equations must be centre aligned. Number equations consecutively with equation numbers in parentheses flush with the right margin, as in Eq.(1)
c = a + b. (1)
Be sure that the symbols in your equation have been defined before the equation appears or immediately following. Italicize Roman symbols for quantities and variables, but not Greek symbols. Use parentheses to avoid ambiguities in denominators.


All sources cited in the text must be listed in the References. References are sequentially numbered as they appear in the article. Reference numbers are indicated in square brackets. When referring to a reference item, enclose the citation number in square brackets, for example [1]. Multiple references are each numbered with separate brackets, for example [3], [5] and in case of series references [2]–[7]. Types of references are as follows:
  • For a journal article, refer [1]
  • For a book, refer [2]
  • For a conference paper, refer [3]
  • For a thesis, refer [4]
  • For a technical report, refer [5]
  • For a online source, refer [6]
  • For a patent, refer [7]
  • For a magazine article, refer [8]


A conclusion might elaborate on the importance of the work or suggest applications and extensions. Authors are requested to ensure that best efforts are made to retain the appearance of their manuscripts in the given template. Papers not in accordance with these guidelines and manuscripts with number of mistakes will have to be rejected. The editorial committee may make some limited changes in the manuscript if needed.
