inter-spacing between the two columns is 1 cm, total                         New Roman and legible (approximately 8 pt).
width of two columns including inter-spacing is 17 cm
and a maximum length of column is 25.7 cm. Eextended
abstract should be 2 or 4 pages length, including figures
and tables without attachments.
2.1. Spacing
    You must use single line spacing. However, when
typing complicated mathematical text it is important to
increase the space between the text lines in order to
prevent sub- and superscript fonts overlapping one
another and making your printed matter illegible.
2.2. Fonts
    All text should be Times New Roman (or Times
Roman) with font sizes as follow: Title 14 pt, Authors
10pt with CAPITAL LETTERS for family name,                                              Fig. 1. Good quality with clear lettering (300 dpi).
