Author's Kit

Please, prepare an electronic version of your Paper according to the following Style and Format.

Paper Style

The Paper should be prepared in final Proceedings form (not exceeding six pages) according to the IFAC LaTeX file guidelines. The package for IFAC papers (ifacconf_latex.zip) consists of the following files:

  • The class file ifacmtg.cls
  • The BibTeX style file ifac.bst
  • The sample file ifacsam.tex
  • The BibTeX database for the sample file ifacsam.bib

Other than the sample file, there is no specific instruction on how to use the ifacmtg.cls document class. Moreover, several requirements on the pdf files and the style of the manuscript are imposed. Briefly,

  • All fonts must be embedded in the file
  • Fonts that require non-English language support are not allowed
  • The paper size for final submission must be A4 and not US Letter
  • The document margins must satisfy the printer's requirements
  • The number of pages and the file size must satisfy the conference requirements
  • The document should not have any password protection

For Authors using Microsoft Word the compressed file ifacconf_office.zip is available containing the template and a sample PDF file.

CAUTION: The word file ifacsam.doc is from Elsevier's archives. It inevitable adds a blank page at the end. You will need to eliminate that page from your submission to meet the 6 page conference limit.

Paper format

You have to submit your Paper in PDF (Adobe Portable Document Format) or PS (Postscript) format. Compressed files obtained with "gzip", "bzip2" or "compress" utilities are also acceptable. The maximum size for your file is 2 MB.
