The empty space at the top of the page is 33mm, and at the bottom at least 27mm, to reserve room for headers and footers. Each abstract should have a title centered at the top of the text. Each author’s name and affiliation, including postal and email address of the corresponding author, goes below the title, also centered. Single line spacing should be used throughout, initial lines of paragraphs should not be indented, paragraphs should be separated with a blank line. Abstracts may contain various sections and/or subsections. Section headings should be centered and typeset in bold font. When citing, a list of references must be included at the end of the abstract.
