Figures and Tables
Place figures and tables as close to the place
of their mention as
possible. Lettering in figures and tables should be large enough to
reproduce clearly, using only the approved fonts. Use of non-approved
fonts in figures often leads to problems when the files are processed
and may even cause loss of information.
All figures and tables must be given sequential
numbers (1, 2,
3, etc.) and have a caption placed below the figure or above the table
If a displayed equation needs a number, place it
flush with the right margin of the column.
All bibliographical references should be
numbered and listed at the end
of the paper in a section called "REFERENCES". When referring to a
reference in the text, place the corresponding reference number in
square brackets. See the template for a typical example.
Acronyms should be defined the first time they
DO NOT have page numbers.
Authors are strongly advised to use the template
corresponding to the
correct version of WORD and not to transport the document across
different platforms e.g. MAC <-> PC or across different versions
of WORD on the same platform.

- Use only Times or Times New Roman (roman,
bold or italic) and Symbol fonts (in the text and in the figures), 10
- Check that the postscript file prints
- Check that there are no page numbers.
- Check that there are no section or
- Check that the margins are correct on the
printed version (left
20mm (0.79in), bottom 19mm (0.75in), overall height of text 241mm
(9.5in)). There may be differences of ±1 mm on the margins from
printer to another.
- Check the size of the file - an average size
<3 MBytes. PostScript files which are larger than 5 MBytes
cause problems and will almost certainly require modification. If the
PostScript file for the paper falls into this category, please consult
the JACoW recommendations for diagnosis and remedies for large files.
