should be in English and typed with double(or single)
column and single line spacing on single side of A4 paper. The submitted
papers will be published in the category of regular technical papers
only. The first page of a paper should contain: (1) a title of paper
which well reflects the contents of the paper (Arial, 15pt), (2) all
the name(s) and affiliations(s) of authors(s) (Arial, 11pt), (3) an
abstract of 100~250 words (Times New Roman, 9.5pt), (4) 5-10 keywords
following the abstract, and (5) footnote (personal title and e-mail
address of the corresponding author (required) and other authors' (not
mandatory)). The paper should be concluded by proper conclusions which
reflect the findings in the paper. The length of paper is NOT within
the range of 12-24 journal pages for single column (based on A-4 sheet
with single line spacing) and 8-16 journal pages for double column. Please

Tables and figures: Tables and figures
should be consecutively numbered and have short titles. They should be
referred to in the text as following examples (e.g., Fig. 1(a), Figs. 1
and 2, Figs. 1(a)-(d) / Table 1, Tables 1-2, etc).
Tables should have borders (1/2pt plane line) with the captions right
before the table. Figures should be properly located in the text as an

expressions: It is desirable that units of measurements and abbreviations
should follow The International System of Units (SI) except where the
other unit system is more suitable. The numbers identifying the
displayed mathematical expression should be placed in the parentheses
and referred to in the text as following examples (e.g., Eq. (1), Eqs. (1)-(2)).
Mathematical expressions must be inserted as an object (set as
Microsoft Equations 3.0) for Microsoft Word 2007 and later versions.
Image-copied text or equations are not acceptable unless they are
editable. The raised and lowered fonts cannot be used for
superscription and subscription.
