    Paper Format (for PPC and RPC)

    - Please refer to the menu For Participants -- Paper Format: "Click here to download template format for the Research Paper"

      This template was created and saved as a Microsoft Word file. The template is used to format your paper and style the text. All margins, column widths, line spaces, and text fonts are prescribed; please do not alter them. You may note peculiarities. For example, the head margin in this template measures proportionately more than is customary. This measurement and others are deliberate, using specifications that anticipate your paper as one part of the entire proceedings, and not as an independent document. Please do not revise any of the current designations or format.
