ICC21 Manuscript Preparation Instructions

Paper Format and Typing Style

All submitted manuscripts for ICC21 will be published in color in the conference proceedings book, Cryocoolers 21, following peer review and final editing for consistency with the book's format requirements.  To provide a uniform look to the book and expedite its preparation, it is important that the ICC format requirements defined in the ICC Format Instructions be strictly followed.

The Typing Instructions, which are printed in the required style, provide detailed guidelines for type fonts, line spacing, margins, artwork quality, and treatment of references.

Because the Proceedings is printed in color, authors are encouraged to use color graphics in their manuscripts, but to also make sure the color is easily interpreted by those that may receive a paper copy in B&W.

To avoid having your paper rejected for major problems, strictly follow the format guidelines and pay particular attention to the "Figure Internal Font and Line-Weight Guidelines" on Pg. 3 and the "How to Avoid Paper Returns for Rework," attached as page 5 of the instructions.

Links to the detailed formatting instructions as well as templates for both Letter and A4 formats are provided below:
