B. Organization of Manuscript

The manuscript submitted for proceedings should contain the following items, in exactly the given order:

1. Title Page
The title page should include:

  • Authors name (initials or first names before surnames) grouped together, separated by commas and each followed by a superscript letter (a etc.), referring to the respective address.
  • The affiliation(s) and address(es) of the author(s)
  • Valid e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers of the corresponding author

2. Abstract (length suggested 250 words & should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references).


The abstract should contain the following elements:

  • Abstract should not exceed 250 words
  • Key words 4-6
  • A statement of the purpose of your study
  • The research methods/methodology used to arrive at your results and/or conclusions
  • The results observed
  • The conclusions drawn from your study

Consider the following while writing an abstract

  • Explain the purpose of your study/paper. Ideally in one sentence, state the primary objectives and scope of the study or the reasons why the document was written. Also state the rationale for your research. Why did you do the research? Is the topic you are researching an ignored or newly discovered one?
  • In terms of methodology (research methods), clearly state the techniques or approaches used in your study. For papers concerned with non-experimental work (such as those in the humanities, some social sciences, and the fine arts) describe your sources and your use/interpretation of the sources.
  • Describe your results (the findings of your experimentation), the data collected, and effects observed as informatively and concisely as possible. These results may be experimental or theoretical, just remember to make note of that in your abstract. Give special priority in your abstract to new and verified findings that contradict previous theories. Mention any limits to the accuracy or reliability of your findings.
  • Your conclusions should in essence describe the implications of the results: Why are the results of your study important to your field and how do they relate to the purpose of your investigation? Often conclusions are associated with recommendations, suggestions and both rejected and accepted hypotheses.

3. Keywords (4 to 6 keywords) which can be used for indexing purposes of the Proceedings

4. Body of the text:

  • For headings and sub headings of the text, decimal system should be used.
