Abstract : This document explains and demonstrates how to prepare your manuscript for 2015 ISEM Proceedings. Authors are strongly advised to read these instructions to rigorously follow the outline of this text. For the rest of the manuscript, please use Times New Roman 10 pt in the main body of a text.
Key words: Camera-Ready Copy, Electronic Data, Manuscript Format, Reference Style (minimum 4 words)

1. Introduction

All manuscripts must be written in English. Please keep a second copy of your manuscript in your office (just in case anything gets lost in editorial process). When receiving the manuscript, we assume that the corresponding authors grant us the copyright to use the manuscript for the book or journal in question. A formal Copyright Transfer Agreement form will be sent before final acceptance is given. Should authors use Tables or Figures from other Publications [1, 2], they must ask the corresponding publishers to grant them the right to publish this material in their manuscript.

The overall length of the manuscript, including Figures and Tables, must be less than 6 pages. The typing area must be 176mmx245mm. Type the text single-sided and single-spaced in two columns.

New paragraphs should have an indent of 5mm. This MS-Word document can be used as a template. The PDF file of your manuscript should be submitted online at the Symposium website ( The name of the PDF file should include your receipt number (3 digits) and the first author’s full name (Example: 012-Taro-MATSUE.pdf). “Receipt number” is written in the acceptance e-mail of 10th ISEM abstract.

If you have any inquiry, please contact:

2. Organization of the Text

A short abstract not more than 10 lines should state briefly the aim, methods and results as a paragraph. Define abbreviations and acronyms the first time they are used. Footnotes should be avoided wherever possible.

2.1 Structure of manuscript

Manuscripts should have the following structure: Title, Name(s) of author(s) and affiliation, Abstract, Main Text, Conclusion(s), Nomenclature, Acknowledgement(s) (if any), References, Appendix (if any)

Heading categories

  • Main Sections (type in bold capitals)

  • Sub-headings (type in bold lower case)

  • Sub-subheadings (type in italic lower case)

2.1.1 Formatting

In formatting the page for an A4-sized manuscript, set top margin at 22mm and bottom margin at 28mm; left and right margins at 17mm. The column width is 83mm. The space between the two columns is 10mm. Justify the both columns.

2.1.2 Fonts

Title: Times New Roman 11 pt, bold.

Author: Times New Roman 10 pt

Affiliation: Times New Roman 10 pt

Main text: Times New Roman 10 pt

2.1.3 Units and equations

All data should be given in SI units. In the text, equation should be referred to as Eq. (1). Align left each equation and allow single spacing above and below as:
(T/x + T/x) = (1/k)(T/t) (1)

Equations (refer with: Eq.(1), Eq.(2), ...) should be indented 5 mm (0.2"). The equations have to be numbered sequentially, and the number put in parentheses at the right-hand edge of the text.

2.2 Tables

Tables (refer with: Table 1, Table 2, ...) should be presented as part of the text, but in such a way as to avoid confusion with the text. The Table caption should be self-contained and placed above the Table. Units in Tables should be given in square brackets such as [mV].
Table 1 Caption of table

Retardation [nm]

Fringe order

Observed color










2.3 Figures

Figures (refer with: Fig.1, Fig.2, ...) also should be presented as part of the text, leaving enough space so that the caption will not be confused with the text. The Figure caption should be self-contained and placed below the Figure. Generally, only original drawings or photographic reproductions are acceptable. Please fit Figures, Tables, and Photographs in one column if possible. Do not reduce Figures or Tables to a size at which their labels will be difficult to read. All reference styles [3-6] used for citation are given at the end of this manuscript format.

Nomenclature (in alphabetical order)

cp specific heat [J/kgK]

h heat transfer coefficient [W/m2K]

 density [kg/m3]

(in Greek alphabetical order )

Subscripts (in alphabetical order )

f surrounding fluid

m mean
