    This electronic document is a template for preparing a paper submission to the Water 2010 conference. The
various components of your paper [title, text, heads, etc.] are already defined under styles and formatting, as
illustrated by the portions given in this document. Write a brief 150-word abstract here. Below, please list keywords
for your paper. The keywords are separated by commas and an em-dash is placed between „Keywords‟ and the first
keyword. The type style for keywords is named „Keywords‟ and it is center-aligned, bold, Times New Roman, 10
point.

                                 Keywords—template, formatting, style, styling, insert

                                         1.    Introduction to the Paper
     This is a template for full paper submissions to the Water 2010 conference. It has been created in MS Word and
provides authors with formatting specifications needed for preparing electronic versions of their papers. Authors
must submit an MS Word 2003 version of their paper. That is, papers should have the .doc extension, rather than
.docx (MS Word 2007). This is to make it easier for reviewers to view the paper and mark up the paper with
constructive comments.
     Margins, line spacing, and type styles are built-in and explicitly detailed in this document. On the first page, the
bottom margin is 3.81 cm. On all subsequent pages, the bottom margin is 2.54 cm. The top margin on all pages is
1.9 cm. The right and left margins on all pages are both 2.54 cm. Line spacing for all type styles is single, however,
titles and headings have additional spacing before and after. All type styles and their formatting requirements are
detailed below.

                                          2.    Template Specifications
   Here you will find examples of paper components, such as title, text, headings, figures, tables, lists, equations
and citations.
2.1    Paper Title
   The type style named „Paper Title‟ is used for the title of the paper. The font type is bold, Times New Roman.
The font size is 14 point. It is aligned with the center. The spacing before is 0 point and after is 6 point. If your paper
has a subtitle, please use a semi-colon between the main title and the subtitle.
2.2    Authors and Affiliations
   After the title of the paper is the list of authors. All authors of the paper should be listed here. If there are two
authors, then use „and‟ between the names. If there are more than two authors, separate full names with a comma
and place an „and‟ between the last and second last author. Each author‟s name is also marked with a superscript
number. The superscript references the following lines, which provide each author‟s department, name of
organization, city, state/province, country and email address.
   The type style of the author‟s section is named „Author‟. The font is Times New Roman, 10 point. The spacing
before is 12 point and after is 2 point. It is center-aligned.
2.3     Text
    All paragraphs are formatted according to the style named „Text‟. The font is Times New Roman, 10 point. The
line spacing is single and there is no extra spacing before or after. The alignment is justified. The first line is

                      Fifth International Conference on Water Resources and Environment Research
                                       5th - 7th of July 2010 at Quebec City, Canada
indented by 0.5 cm.


2.4     Headings
     Headings, or heads, are used to organize paper in a coherent manner. They are organizational devices that guide
the reader through your paper. Be sure to capitalize all major words in titles, headings, figure captions and table
titles.
Heading 1
   The type style for level 1 headings is „Heading 1‟. The font type is bold, Times New Roman, 12 point. It is
center-aligned. The numbering style is 1, 2, 3 … and there is a period after the number. The tab after the number,
indent and hanging is 0.76 cm. The spacing before is 12 point and after is 3 point.
Heading 2
    The type style for level 2 headings is „Heading 2‟. The font type is bold, Times New Roman, 10 point. It is left-
aligned. The numbering style is 1, 2, 3 … and there is no period after the number. The tab after the number, indent
and hanging is 1.02 cm. The spacing before is 6 point and after is 3 point.
Heading 3
    The type style for level 3 headings is „Heading 3‟. The font type is bold, Times New Roman, 10 point. It is left-
aligned. There is no numbering. The spacing before is 6 point and after is 3 point.
Heading 5
   The type style for component headings, for example „Abstract‟, „Acknowledgements‟ and „References‟, is
„Heading 5‟. The font type is bold, Times New Roman, 12 point. It is center-aligned. There is no numbering. The
spacing before is 12 point and after is 3 point.

2.5    Figures and Tables
Position of Figures and Tables
    Place figures and tables at the top and bottom of pages. Avoid placing them in the middle of a page. Figure
captions should be below the figures; table titles should appear above the tables. Insert figures and tables after they
are cited in the text. Refer to figures and tables as Figure 1 and Table 1 in the text; please do not abbreviate.
Figure Caption and Labels
   The style for figure captions is named „Figure Caption‟. The font style is bold, Times New Roman, 10 point. It is
center-aligned and the number is 1, 2, 3. Put a period at the end of the figure caption. The spacing before is 4 point
and after is 10 point.
   Use, at least, 10 point font for figure labels. Use words rather than symbols or abbreviations when writing figure
axis labels to avoid confusing the reader.

Table Fonts
    The title of the table is formatted according to „Table Title‟, which uses 1, 2, 3 … for numbering. The font style
is bold, Times New Roman, 10 point. The spacing before is 12 point and after is 6 point. Put a period at the end of
the table title.
    The font style for the column headings is „Table Head‟, which is 10 point, bold, Times New Roman as well and
center-aligned. For the text in the table, the style is called „Table Text‟ and is 8 point, Times New Roman and
center-aligned. Moreover, the spacing for the table text is 2 point before and 2 point after.

2.6       Lists and Equations
Units
    Use either the International System of Units (SI) Meter Kilogram Second (MKS) or Centimeter Gram Second
      (CGS) as primary units. (SI units are encouraged.) English units may be used as secondary units (in
      parentheses).
         Avoid combining SI and CGS units, such as force in dynes and pressure in pascals. This often leads to
          confusion because equations do not balance dimensionally. If you must use mixed units, clearly state the units
          for each quantity that you use in an equation.
         Do not mix complete spellings and abbreviations of units: “m3/s” or “cubic meter per second”, not
          “m3/second”. Spell out units when they appear in text: “. . . a few liters”, not “. . . a few L”.
         Use a zero before decimal points: “0.25”, not “.25”. Use “cm3”, not “cc”. (bullet list)
Inserting Equations
    The equations are an exception to the prescribed specifications of this template. You will need to determine
whether or not your equation should be typed using either the Times New Roman or the Symbol font (please no
other font). To create multileveled equations, it may be necessary to treat the equation as a graphic and insert it into
the text after your paper is styled.
    Number equations consecutively. Equation numbers, within parentheses, are to position right, as in (1), using a
right tab stop. To make your equations more compact, you may use the solidus ( / ), the exp function, or appropriate
exponents. Italicize Roman symbols for quantities and variables, but not Greek symbols. Use a long dash rather than
a hyphen for a minus sign. Punctuate equations with commas or periods when they are part of a sentence, as in

                                                                               

    Note that the equation is centered using a center tab stop. Be sure that the symbols in your equation have been
defined before or immediately following the equation. Use “Equation 1”, not “Eq. (1)” or “(1)” to refer to an
equation in the text.
2.7    Citations and References
   To cite a reference in the text, list author last names and the year in curved brackets, for example, (Cleveland,
1972). In citing a reference which has three or more authors, please use "et al." (Keeling et al., 1955). The sentence
punctuation follows the bracket. Separate multiple references with a semi-colon (Box and Jenkins, 1976; Young,
1989; Environment Canada, 1977). At the beginning of a sentence only put the year in brackets: “Box et al. (1982)
was the first . . .”
   Please do not use footnotes.
   In the reference section, kindly provide all authors' names; do not use „et al‟. Papers that have not been


                                                                                                         WATER 2010
published, even if they have been submitted for publication, should be cited with the year in which it was written
(Elissa, 1980), but indicated as unpublished in the reference section. Papers that have been accepted for publication
should be cited with the year that the article is expected to be published in and indicated as “in press” in the
reference section (Nicole, 2010).
    References should be listed alphabetically in the reference section. For references with the same first author, list
single-authored references first, then two authors, then three authors, etc., in alphabetical order according to the
second (or third, if necessary) author's last name. For references with the exact same authors, list them in
chronological order. If there are multiple references with the same authors and year, append to the year
alphanumerics to distinguish them, for example, (Fang et al., 2003a; Fang et al., 2003b).
    Capitalize all major words in a paper title, book title, journal title.


                                             3.    Paper submission
