Ieee Research Paper Format Font Size

The standard format is the IEEE CS-Press format. Here is the usual message. AUTHOR GUIDELINES FOR 8.5 x 11-INCH PROCEEDINGS MANUSCRIPTS Congratulations on the acceptance of your paper for publication. Please follow the steps outlined below when submitting your final paper to the IEEE Computer Society Press: (1) ALL MANUSCRIPTS MUST BE IN ENGLISH. (2) PRINTING YOUR PAPER. (For hard-copy.) Print your properly formatted text on high-quality, 8.5 x 11-inch white printer paper (A4 size is also acceptable). All printed material, including text, illustrations, and charts, must be kept within a print area 6-7/8 inches (approx. 17.5 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (approx. 22.5 cm) high. Number your pages lightly in pencil on the back of each page. (3) PAGE AND COLUMN LAYOUT. Start the first page in a one-column format. Center your title about 3 lines down from the normal top of the print area. Follow the title with two blank lines. The author name(s) and affiliation(s) are next, centered beneath the title and followed by two blank lines. Your Abstract and the remainder of the paper are to be in a two-column format (except for figures or tables that may span both columns, if necessary). If the last page is not filled, please divide the data into two equal columns. Columns in the two-column format are to be 3-1/4 inches wide (approx. 8.5 cm), with a 3/8-inch (approx. 1.0 cm) space between columns, for a total print area width of 6-7/8 inches (approx. 17.5 cm). The length of the print area of any page must not exceed 8-7/8 inches (approx. 22.5 cm). (4) TYPE STYLE AND SIZE OF TEXT. Normal text is to be single-spaced in 10-point Times or Times Roman (or similar font), with 12-point interline spacing, in the two-column format. The first line of each paragraph is to be indented approximately 1/4 inch (approx. 0.7 cm), and the entire text is to be justified -- that is, flush left and flush right. Please do not place additional line spacing between paragraphs. Figure and table captions should be Helvetica 10-point boldface; callouts should be Helvetica 9-point nonboldface. (5) ABSTRACTS. The Abstract should be approximately 150 words or fewer, italicized, in 10-point Times (or Times Roman.) Please leave two spaces between the Abstract and the heading of your first section. (6) TITLE AND HEADINGS. The main title should be in Times (or Times Roman) 14-point boldface centered over both columns. In the main title, please initially capitalize nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs; do not capitalize articles, coordinate conjunctions, and prepositions (unless the title begins with such a word). Initially capitalize only the first word in first-, second-, and third-order headings. Leave two blank lines before author names(s)/affiliation(s). AUTHOR NAME(S)/AFFILIATION(S) are to be centered in Times (or Times Roman) 12-point nonboldface. Leave two blank lines before your Abstract. ABSTRACT HEADING. The abstract heading is to be 11-point boldface, initially capitalized and centered within the column. FIRST-ORDER HEADINGS. First-order headings (for example, 1: Introduction) are to be Times 12-point boldface, flush left, with one blank line before, and one blank line after. SECOND-ORDER HEADINGS. Second-order headings (for example, 1.1: Database elements) are to be Times 11-point boldface, flush left, with one blank line before, and one after. If you require a third-order heading (we discourage it), then it is to be in Times 10-point boldface, preceded by one blank line, and followed by a period and text on same line. (7) ILLUSTRATIONS, GRAPHS, AND PHOTOGRAPHS. Illustrations, graphs, and photographs may fit across both columns, if necessary. Your artwork must be in place in the article. If you are printing a hard copy, use rubber cement to affix the artwork in place. Although halftones can be shot from color prints, black and white photos are preferable. Please supply the best quality photographs and illustrations possible. The quality of the book cannot be better than the originals provided. (8) USE OF TAPE. (For hard copy.) Do not place cellophane tape over any part of your text or graphics. (Cellophane tape may distort or obliterate what it covers, and it retains fingerprints and dirt smudges.) (9) COLOR. The use of color on interior pages (that is, pages other than the cover) is prohibitively expensive. Consequently, we publish interior pages in color only when it is specifically requested and budgeted for by the conference organizers. If these proceedings are going to have color photos, you must provide a clearly marked slide with its corresponding plate number, your name, and the position of the slide (if there is more than one). You also need to identify the right side and the top of the slide. Please make a Xerox copy (or photocopy) of each photo (or a small, rough sketch) and attach it with rubber cement to show the intended size and location. Color photos are sent to a color separator before going to the printer, so it is essential that we have this information to ensure the correct display of your color graphics. (10) FOOTNOTES. Use footnotes sparingly and place them at the bottom of the column in which they are referenced (not full width across two columns). Use Times 8-point type with 10-point interline spacing for footnotes. To help readers, avoid footnotes altogether and include necessary peripheral observations in your text (within parentheses, if you prefer, as in this sentence). (11) REFERENCES. List and number all bibliographical references at the end of your paper in 9-point Times, with 10-point interline spacing. When referenced within the text, enclose the citation number in square brackets, for example [1]. (12) COPYRIGHT FORMS. You must include your signed IEEE copyright release form when you submit your finished paper. We must have this form before your paper can be published in the proceedings. Questions not answered in these guidelines may be directed to an IEEE Computer Society Press production editor at: Phone (714) 821-8380, or Fax (714) 761-1784.

IEEE 802.11 DOCUMENT STYLE REQUIREMENTS

  • Why do we have these requirements?
  • What are the requirements?
  • How do I get the templates? 
  • How do I use the templates?
  • How do I get a document number?
  • How do I upload a document?
  • Reasons for having rules on the style of IEEE 802.11 documents

    All documents generated for and by the IEEE 802.11 Working Group will be published through a web-site.  Therefore, it is of prime importance that all documents adhere to the following rules.

    State the document status in the footer

    To prevent confusion by the public, the document must clearly state the status: Is it a submission or proposal from an individual, or is it an approved Working Group position?  The requirement is that the footer on each submission clearly state "Submission".

    Document numbers and page numbers on ALL pages

    The document number and the page number must be shown on all pages.  Also, the page numbers need to be contiguous from 1 through the highest number. 

    Maintain a professional look

    To give the 802.11 publications a professional look, a standardized header and footer is required.

    Document numbers, filenames and uploading documents

    Document numbers are available from the mentor web server at: https://mentor.ieee.org/802.11/documents.

    Before you can obtain a document number,  you must log in using your IEEE web account credentials.

    You can then obtain a document number from the mentor web site (above).   You have a choice of uploading

    the document immediately, or uploading it later.   When uploading the document later,  log in using your IEEE

    web account credentials and filter on "My Pending".   Locate the correct document and select the "upload"

    link to the right of that document.   This will bring you to a dialog where you can locate the document to

    be uploaded.

     

    Note: the uploader validates only part of the filename (as it describes in the upload dialog).  It does not validate

    the title against what was entered when the document number was requested.   Also,  it does not check the

    year part of the filename.  Please enter these parts of the filename consistently.

     

    Please ensure that the filename matches the following template:

        11-<2-digit-year>-<4-digit-document-number>-<2-digit-revision>-<subgroup>-<title>.<extension>
     

    e.g.

        11-08-0123-02-000a-example-document-title.doc
     

    Also note that the format of the document designator (described here) follows slightly different rules to the filename.  Use the document designator format when referring to a document in a submission.

    File Format for IEEE 802.11 Documents

    Microsoft Office 2003 or 2007 is the official document format for the IEEE 802.11 Working Group.

    Acrobat .PDF files are used only for Working Group standard Draft documents.

    Rules for IEEE 802.11 documents

    The document format shall be:

    Paper size: US letter (8.5"x11")

    Margins: top margin: 0.6 ", bottom margin: 0.5 ", mirror images, inner margin: 0.75", outer margin: 0.75", Gutter: 0.5 ", header and footer 0.3" from edge.

    Each page shall have a header with the following attributes:
    Font and size Times (New) Roman, Bold, 14 point  for portrait oriented documents
    Font and size Times (New) Roman, Bold, 18 point for landscape oriented documents (e.g. PowerPoint)
    Line below, with 2 points separation from text
    Left, aligned with margin: the month and year of the publication (the venue date)
    Right aligned to the margin: the document designator, which includes the document number:

    doc.: IEEE 802.11-yy/ssssrx

    where:

    yy are the last two digits of the year

    ssss is the assigned sequence number of the document

    x is the revision number

    Each page shall have a footer with the following attributes:
    Font and size Times (New) Roman, Normal, 12 point
    Line above
    Left, aligned with margin: the word "Submission"
    Center: the word "page" followed by the page number
    Right aligned to the margin: the first author and company.

    Every document submission must have an author and company as a point of reference for the submission.

    Templates

    As a convenience, the following templates are available for Microsoft Office users:

    For quick and easy document creation, place the template files in your template directory.  The template location varies depending on the version of Microsoft Office.  Typical locations are:

    c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\802.11

    or,

    c:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\802.11

    Create the “802.11” directory in the appropriate location, then copy all the 802.11 template files to that directory.

    If you are unsure of the location of the Microsoft Office template files on your system, follow these steps:
                1. Launch Microsoft Word 2003.
                2. Menu select Tools, Options.
                3. Click the File Locations tab and click the “User Templates” list box entry.
                4. Click the Modify button to display the full text of the User Templates path.  This is folder where the 802.11 templates must be placed.
                5. Click the Cancel button.
                6. Click the Close button.
                7. Open Explorer and navigate to the folder path discovered in step 4.
                8. Create a new folder there called “802.11”, then copy all the 802.11 template files to that directory.

    To create a new submission, launch the preferred Microsoft Office application (Word, PowerPoint or Excel), then menu select File, New, and select the appropriate 802.11 template file.  Follow the instructions provided within the template.

    Alternatively you can place the 802.11 document templates on your desktop, then double-click the appropriate template icon to open the template.  This alternate procedure is NOT recommended since then every time you create a new submission you must remember to save the resulting document under a different name and ensure that the resulting new document extension is changed from a template file to a document file.  The Microsoft Office applications treat the opening of the template files differently from creating a new document based on the templates.  The former is useful for editing the templates themselves, while the later creates a new document based on the template.  When operating on a template file directly the Microsoft Office applications operate in a similar, but slightly different mode than when operating on a real document.  Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you find the correct location for the template files on your system and copy the 802.11 submission templates to that location.  Then you can create a new submission at will, and there are no special procedures to remember, you can just follow the instructions within the template.

    Guidelines for using the Word templates for document submissions

    Place the template files in your template directory.  The template location varies depending on the version of Microsoft Office.  Typical locations are:

    c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\802.11

    or,

    c:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\802.11

    Create the “802.11” directory in the appropriate location, then copy the 802.11 template files to that directory.

    To create a new 802.11 submission, menu select File, New, and select the appropriate 802.11 Word template file (portrait or landscape format).

    Follow the instructions provided within the template.

    Note:

    The headers are provided with "fields" that are automatically copied from the document properties section.

    Follow the instructions provided within the template for properly setting the document properties and then updating the header and footer from the document properties.

    Guidelines for PowerPoint Submissions

    Place the template files in your template directory.  The template location varies depending on the version of Microsoft Office.  Typical locations are:

    c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\802.11

    or,

    c:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\802.11

    Create the “802.11” directory in the appropriate location, then copy the 802.11 template file to that directory.

    To create a new 802.11 submission, menu select File, New, and select the 802.11 PowerPoint template file.

    Follow the instructions provided within the template.

    Guidelines for Excel Submissions

    Place the template files in your template directory.  The template location varies depending on the version of Microsoft Office.  Typical locations are:

    c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\802.11

    or,

    c:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\802.11

    Create the “802.11” directory in the appropriate location, then copy the 802.11 template file to that directory.

    To create a new 802.11 submission, menu select File, New, and select the 802.11 Excel template file.

    Follow the instructions provided within the template.

    Note:

    The header and footer are automatically updated by a macro whenever the spreadsheet is printed (or print-previewed).  The macro copies the corresponding cells on the Title sheet to the header and footer "fields" of every sheet in the workbook.
