QuestionWhat are the paper editing elements I should check?
Solution All authors are requested to submit their papers in camera-ready form.

All authors have to follow the template on the web-site. If your paper was marked as "Incorrect Format", you have to check all the formatting elements below.


01. The paper has an even number of pages and the last page is at least 50% covered by text.
02. The two columns on the last page must have equal lengths.
03. There are no blank lines in the text.
04. The sponsor information must be inserted in the unnumbered footnote on the first page.
05. No footnotes are allowed on other pages. Include all information in the paper text.
06. The title should be specific to the paper. It should be comprehensible to readers outside your field. Avoid specialist abbreviations, if possible. Titles should be written as English titles, so capitalize the first letter of each word, proper names, and abbreviations, except prepositions. The title length must be at most 150 characters long, including spaces.
