Manuscript submissions should be in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) only. The page limit is 9 pages. Font size should be no smaller than 10 points.

The three most important elements of manuscript layouts are:


1. Margins: these must be strictly followed. Manuscripts cannot be accepted for review until proper margins are used.

When you upload your PDF, EDAS should report the margins are no less than 0.625x0.625x1x0.75 with a text region no more than 7.25 inches x 9.25 inches on a standard US Letter document (8.5 inches x 11 inches). The minimum line spacing should be 10pt. Of course, your margins and line spacing can be larger than this. If you have problems setting the individual margins, please set 1 inch margins all around.
