All figures and tables should INSULATION. have adequate titles or captions, and must be integrally placed The objective of this document is to provide a template for the at their proper location(s) in the text. For the benefit of the preparation of a paper for publication in the Proceedings of the readers, the figures, tables, graphs and photos should be placed IEEE International Power Modulator and High Voltage near the corresponding text; that is, not accumulated at the Conference. The use of this template will ensure the professional end of the text or at the end of the manuscript.

Rate-Distortion curves comparing Reference and Proposed should not be selected. algorithms. There is a period after the figure number, followed by two spaces. Please include the caption and illustration within a text-box. It is good practice to explain the significance of the figure. 4 UNITS Use only SI units. In cases where none SI units are desired 5.2 REFERENCES these must be placed in parenthesis next to the SI units. Number citations/references consecutively in square brackets . The sentence punctuation follows the brackets . Multiple 5 HELPFUL HINTS references [2, 4-6] are numbered between same brackets. When citing a section in a book, please give the relevant page numbers 5.1 FIGURES AND TABLES . In sentences, refer simply to the reference number, as in . Do not use “Ref. ” or “reference ” except at the beginning Place figure captions below the figures; place table titles of a sentence: “Reference  shows ....” above the tables. If your figure has two parts, for example, Number footnotes separately in superscripts (Insert | include the labels “(a)” and “(b)” as part of the artwork. In the Footnote). Place the actual footnote at the bottom of the text use Figure 4a and not Fig. 4 (a). Figures 5a and 5b and not column in which it is cited; do not put footnotes in the Figs. 5 (a) and (b). Please verify that figures and tables that reference list. It is recommended that footnotes be avoided. you mention in the text actually exist. Use ‘Figure’ even in the Instead, try to integrate the footnote information into the text middle of sentence. Do not use the abbreviation “Fig.” wherever possible. Do not increase the column length with Figure axis labels are often a source of confusion. Use footnotes. No text is allowed outside the 7.26 inch x 9.25 inch words rather than symbols. As an example, write the quantity area. Do not use headers, footers, or insert page numbers. Do “Rate,” or “Rate, R,” not just “R.” Put units in parentheses. Do not modify the page margins, and do not extent the figures or not label axes only with units. As in Figure 1, for example, tables outside the margins. write “Rate (kb/s).” Multipliers can be especially confusing. Note that IEEE referencing style is quite different from that Write “Rate (kb/s)” or “Rate (103 b/s),” not “Rate (b/s) Table 1. Reset pulse parameters with unsaturated magnetic cores (example of a double column table). Reset voltage 300 V 400 V 450 V Peak reset current (t=-2.88 ms) 35 A 48 A 54 A Reset current (at t=0 ms) 3.7 A 5.1 A 5.6 A used by most physics journals. Give all authors’ names; do not “s,” not “sec.” Do not mix complete spellings and use “et al”. Use a space after authors’ initials. Papers that have abbreviations of units: use “Mb/s” or “megabits per second,” not been published should be cited as “unpublished” . not “megabits/s.” When expressing a range of values, write “7 Papers that have been submitted or accepted for publication to 9” or “7-9,” not “7~9.” should be cited as “submitted for publication” . Please give A parenthetical statement at the end of a sentence is affiliations and addresses for personal communications . punctuated outside of the closing parenthesis (like this). (A For papers published in translation journals, please give the parenthetical sentence is punctuated outside the parentheses). English citation first, followed by the original foreign- In American English, periods and commas are outside language citation . quotation marks, like “this period”. Other punctuation is Website addresses should not be used as references because “outside”! Avoid contractions; for example, write “do not” they are not permanent and therefore are not archival. Also instead of “don’t”. IEEE-Xplore® is developing linkages to all references but not Remember to check spelling. If you are not well versed in to website addresses. the English language, please request a colleague such as professor of English if you are in a university or a professional translator to proofread your paper. 5.3 ABBREVIATIONS Define abbreviations and acronyms the first time they are 6 SOME COMMON MISTAKES used in the text, even after they have already been defined in the abstract. Abbreviations such as IEEE, SI, ac, and dc do not The word “data” is plural, not singular. Use the word have to be defined. Abbreviations that incorporate periods “micrometer” instead of “micron.” A graph within a graph is should not have spaces: write “C.N.R.S.,” not “C. N. R. S.” Do an “inset,” not an “insert.” The word “alternatively” is not use abbreviations in the title unless they are unavoidable preferred to the word “alternately” (unless you really mean (for example, “IEEE” in the title of this article). For a more something that alternates). Use the word “whereas” instead of complete listing of common abbreviations and acronyms “while” (unless you are referring to simultaneous events). Do please refer to Appendix II of http://www.ieee.org/ not use the word “essentially” to mean “approximately” or organizations/pubs/transactions/auinfo00.pdf. “effectively.” Do not use the word “issue” as a euphemism for “problem.” 5.4 EQUATIONS Be aware of the different meanings of the homophones “affect” (usually a verb) and “effect” (usually a noun), Number equations consecutively with equation numbers in “complement” and “compliment”, “discreet” and “discrete,” parentheses flush with the right margin, as in (1). First use the “principal” (e.g., “principal investigator”) and “principle” equation editor to create the equation. Then select the (e.g., “principle of measurement”). Do not confuse “imply” “Equation” markup style. Press the tab key and write the and “infer”. equation number in parentheses. To make your equations more Prefixes such as “non,” “sub”, “micro”, and “ultra” are not compact, you may use the solidus ( / ), the exp function, or independent words; they should be joined to the words they appropriate exponents. Use parentheses to avoid ambiguities in modify, usually without a hyphen. There is no period after the denominators. Punctuate equations when they are part of a “et” in the Latin abbreviation “et al”. The abbreviation “i.e.” sentence, as in means “that is” and the abbreviation “e.g.” means “for example”. u( x, j ) A cosh(rx ) B sinh(rx ) (1) A general IEEE style guide, Information for Authors, is available at: Be sure that the symbols in your equation have been defined http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/authors_speakers.ht before the equation appears or immediately following. ml?WT.mc_id=pub_as Symbols should be as used in the equations either in Roman or italics. Refer to “equation (1)” not “Eq. (1)” or “(1),” except 7 CONCLUSION at the beginning of a sentence: “Equation (1) is ... .” A conclusion section is very useful. Although a conclusion 5.5 OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS may review the main points of the paper, do not replicate the abstract as the conclusion. A conclusion might elaborate on the Use one space after periods and colons. Hyphenate complex importance of the work or suggest applications and extensions. modifiers: “zero-field-cooled magnetization.” Avoid dangling participles, such as, “Using (1), the potential was calculated.” [It is not clear who or what used (1).] Write instead, “The APPENDIX potential was calculated by using equation (1) or “Using Appendices, if needed, appear before the acknowledgment. equation (1), we calculated the potential.” Use a zero before decimal points: “0.25,” not “.25.” Use ACKNOWLEDGMENT “cm3,” not “cc.” Indicate sample dimensions as “0.1 cm 0.2 The preferred spelling of the word “acknowledgment” in cm,” not “0.1 0.2 cm2.” The abbreviation for “seconds” is American English is without an “e” after the “g.” Use the singular heading even if you have many acknowledgments. Avoid expressions such as “One of us (S.B.A.) would like to thank ... .” Instead, write “S.B.A. thanks ... .” Put sponsor acknowledgments in the Acknowledgment section. This template is based in part on that used by IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics and thanks are extended to the creators of that template. REFERENCES  A. Vetro, H. Sun, P. DaGraca, and T.
