Manuscript Preparation Guidelines

Paper Format and Typing Style

All submitted manuscripts, whether for oral or poster papers, will be published in color in the conference proceedings book, Cryocoolers 2X, 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:

Manuscript Submittal Process

Camera-ready technical papers should be handed in to the Publications Room by the end of the first day of the conference.

To expedite the production of the Proceedings, the primary input should be an electronic version of your manuscript saved as an MS Word file (*.doc or *.docx).  If an Adobe Acrobat PDF file is submitted, make sure the file is saved with high resolution graphics and with all fonts embedded.

In addition, printed camera-ready copies are also required for peer review and resolution of any readability issues with the electronic manuscript.  

Last, each submitted paper must be accompanied with a completed and signed Copyright Release Form.

In Summary, please submit the following:

  • An electronic version (*.doc or *.docx) on a CD, DVD or flash drive
  • One camera-ready master hard copy for resolution of readability issues
  • Three additional repro copies for use in the peer review process
  • A completed and signed Copyright Release Form (.pdf)

All papers will be peer reviewed for format and technical content prior to selection for publication in the ICC conference proceedings. Strict adherence to the established format is required for consideration.
