No mare than 5.I. INTRODUCTIONYour goal is to simulate the usual appearance of papersinIEEE conference proceedings. For items not addressed inthese instructions, please refer to the last issue of yourconference's proceedings for reference or ask yourconference Publications Chair for instructions.A.Preparing Your Paper1) Paper Size: Prepare your paper in full-size format onUS letter size paper (8.5 by 11 inches).2) Type Sizes and Typefaces: Follow the font type sizesspecified in Table I. The font type sizes are given in points,same as in the MS Word font size points. Times New Romanis the preferred font.3) Paper Margins: Paper margins on the US letter sizepaper are set as follows: top = 0.75 inches, bottom = 1 inch,side = 0.625 inches. Each column measures 3.5 inches wide,with a 0.25-inch gap between the two columns.4) Paper Styles: Left- and right-justify the columns. Onthe last page of your paper, adjust the lengths of the columnsso that they are equal. Use automatic hyphenation and checkspelling and grammar. Use high resolution (300dpi or above)figures, plots, drawings and photos for best printing result.TABLE IType Size for PapersTypesize(pts.)AppearanceRegularBoldItalic6Table superscripts8Section titlesa, references, tables,table namesa, table captions,figure captions, footnotes, textsubscripts, and superscripts9Abstract, Index Terms10Authors' affiliations, main text,equations, first letter in sectiontitlesaSubheading11Authors' names22Paper titleaUppercaseB.Preparing Your PDF Paper for IEEE Xplore©Detailed instructions on how to prepare PDF files of yourpapers for IEEEXplore© can be found at job setting files for Acrobat versions 4, 5 and 6 can befound for downloading from the above webpage as well. Theinstructions for preparing PDF papers for IEEEXplore©must be strictly followed.II. HELPFULHINTSA.Figures and TablesTry to position figures and tables at the tops and bottomsof columns and avoid placing them in the middle of columns.Large figures and tables may span across both columns.Figure captions should be centered below the figures; tablecaptions should be centered above. Avoid placing figures andtables before their first mention in the text. Use theabbreviation “Fig. #,” even at the beginning of a sentence.Figure axis labels are often a source of confusion. Usewords rather than symbols. For example, as shown in Fig. 1,write “Magnetization,” or “Magnetization (M)” not just “M.”Put units in parentheses. Do not label axes only with units.In the example, write “Magnetization (A/m)” or“Magnetization (Am-1).” Do not label axes with a ratio ofquantities and units. For example, write “Temperature (K),”not “Temperature/K.”Multipliers can be very confusing. Write “Magnetization(kA/m)” or “Magnetization (103A/m).” Figure labels shouldbe legible, at 8-point type.0510150246Applied Field (103A/m)Fig. 1 Magnetization as a function of applied field.Note how the caption is centered in the column.B.References1This work is partially supported by NSF Grant #2003168 to H.
