They must be formatted according to the guidelines in the Manuscript Template. They must include title, author(s) and affiliations, abstract, as well as the text of the paper and references. Figures should be placed inline in the text. Each accepted paper will be presented as a 15 miniute oral presentation, and these will be organized into sessions by topic. Papers should be organized as follows: Title (should be clear, descriptive and not too long), Authors and their affiliations, Abstract (one paragraph not to exceed 400 words), Keywords (four to six), introduction, methods and techniques results and discussion, conclusions, Acknowledgments, and References.
