This guide has been prepared for authors of abstracts of poster papers to be presented at the ICHMT International Symposium on Radiative Transfer to be held in Istanbul, Turkey, on 20-25 June 2004. It provides rules for the preparation of the extended abstracts that will be distributed to participants at registration, and has been written in accordance with these requirements (except for its length). Authors are requested to follow these guidelines to achieve uniformity in the presentation of the Book of Poster Abstracts.
Use only one side of A4 size (210 ´ 297 mm) or quarto (8 ½ ´ 11 inch) good quality white bond paper. The text should be single-spaced. If superscripts or subscripts make this a problem, wider spacing may be necessary. Leave double spaces between paragraphs. Begin paragraphs flush at the left margin without indentation. The typing area of all pages should not exceed 170 x 247 mm, whichever size of paper is used, with equal margins on left and right. Each page should be completely filled with typing and/or diagrams (except perhaps the last page). The total length of an abstract, including all figures, tables and references if any, should be at least two pages and not more than three pages.
References should be numbered consecutively in the order
they are mentioned1, using superscripted2-3 Arabic numerals4.
Do not type page numbers. Lightly write the page number
and the first author's name at the bottom of each page,
using a light blue pencil.
Special instructions if using a computer or word processor
Authors should use Times or Times New Roman, 12-point
character size for the text. A laser printer must be used
for preparation of the manuscript. A dot matrix printer
is not acceptable. The printer should have
a typeface that features descenders below the baseline.
The text should be left and right justified.
Layout of the abstract
The layout of the abstract should follow the style of
this document, starting with a title, name(s) of author(s)
and affiliation(s). The title should appear 32 mm below
the top edge of the page. It should be brief, clear and
descriptive. Use all bold capital letters (except if formulae
or symbols appear in the title), centered on the width
of the typing area. Leave one blank line after the title
and another after the affiliation(s).
If your abstract is divided into sections and subsections,
please use the format adopted here, in which first-level
headings are in bold capitals, centered on the line, and
second level headings are in bold lower case (initial
capital), left aligned.
Non-English speaking authors
Authors from non-English speaking countries are requested
to find persons who are competent in English and familiar
with the scientific language who can edit their abstracts
and manuscripts before submission. As there is no copy
editing stage for camera-ready manuscripts, it is the
responsibility of authors to ensure that the presentation
of their papers reaches the same high level as that of
the work they describe.
All authors of recent-work poster presentations are expected to send their abstracts, one original and three copies, for peer-review, to the Co-Chairman, M.P. Mengüç, to arrive before March 31, 2004.

The final abstracts are to be sent, to ICHMT Secretariat, in camera-ready form and preferably in pdf format (or as MS-Word document), in a diskette, or as attachment to an email message, to arrive before May 1, 2004
