DESCRIPTION OF PAPERS CONSIDERED FOR PUBLICATION: Technical Papers should specifically describe emerging techniques, such as the development or design of a new process, product or device, the definition of industrial standards or a collection of measurement data for round-robin and test cases comparing numerical simulations. Generally the submission should be limited to 30 double spaced pages, including all figures, tables and references.
Short Letters should specifically describe breakthroughs - particularly relevant new results. They should accelerate the dissemination and the priority of a particular discovery. Submissions should be limited to eight double-spaced pages, including figures, tables, and references. Short Letters will be processed through the editorial system more quickly than standard manuscripts.

    Author Information: Senior authors full name, affiliation, and e-mail address. Corresponding authors complete mailing address and e-mail address. Co-authors' affiliation and email address.

    Abstract: All articles must have an abstract not to exceed 250 words. Avoid abbreviations, diagrams, and reference to the text.

    Key Words: All articles should have a list of key (indexing) terms. Three to ten key words or terms not in the title will assist indexers in cross-indexing your article.

    Body: Group all tables, figures, and figure captions at the end of the article, following the references. Equations should be numbered sequentially. Use no more than two levels of headings. Number headings sequentially using numerals, as follows: level 1 headings 1., 2., 3., etc.; level 2 headings 1.1., 2.1., etc. For articles containing more than a few symbols, include a nomenclature list in alphabetical order, with Greek symbols (also in alphabetical order and with a separate heading) following the alphabetical listing in English. The Nomenclature section should be placed after key words and before introduction. All articles must use SI units throughout; English units may be included parenthetically. Equations should not be provided as pictures, use programs such as MathType, Microsoft Equation, etc.

    Figures: Prepare figures so that they do not exceed the size of the journal pages (size requirements can be obtained by emailing journals). Use only Arial and Symbol fonts for text within figures. Acceptable formats for figures are TIFF, JPEG, EPS or similar programmfiles saved from the original application at 300-600 dpi. Because of the loss of resolution, embedding figure files in MS Word is not recommended. The preferred format is TIFF; however, maintaining a clear quality of the figures is most important. Do not use gray rules, only black. If the text is printed over gray backgrounds for any reason, the gray must be at least 50% lighter than the text. If possible, avoid grayscales entirely. In general, for best results, figures must be submitted at the highest possible quality. Figure captions should be typed, on a separate sheet. The author can submit color figures that appear in color online, but will print in black and white. Color reproduction of figures is possible at the author's expense, rates will be provided upon request. Please be sure to call out all figures in the text.

    Tables: Tables should not be embedded in the text or provided as a picture, provide tables at the end of the article and be sure to call out the table in the text. A short descriptive title should appear above each table with a clear legend and any foot-notes suitably identified below. All units must be included.

    Reference Format: Cite references in the text using the last name of the author(s) and the year of publication, either as "(Doe and Johnson, 1992)" or "Doe and Johnson (1992)." For more than two authors, use "Doe et al. (1992)" or "Doe et al. (1992)". ).” If any references contain identical authors and year of publication, cite in the form Doe et al. (1992a), Doe et al. (1992b). Order the reference list alphabetically and format according to the following samples. Incorrectly formatted reference callouts or lists will be returned to the author to correct before processing for publication.
