11ACWE Presentation Information and Paper Format Fullname1, Fullname2,etc. 1 Professor of Civil Engineering, XYZ University, San Juan, Puerto Rico, USA, email@XYZ.edu 2 President, XYZ Engineering, Ponce, Puerto Rico, USA, email@example.com ABSTRACT This document is saved as a template so you must use the Style and Formatting Task Pane to change your text to the appropriate format. The Task Pane should appear in the styles toolbar where you will see all the styles designed specifically for 11ACWE. If you do not know how to set up your text using templates, please email Rolando Vega at RoVega@absconsulting.com and he will be happy to arrange a phone meeting to tell you how to do it. Do NOT change the page margins, headers or footers - it will be used by the editorial board to input the conference event and venue. Notice that no empty spaces are left between paragraphs; instead use an indent of 0.5 inches starting from the second paragraph of each section. All other spacing requirements are taken care with the template formatting. Do NOT change spacing given by the template. Any questions should be sent to the email given above. INTRODUCTION There will be three types of presentations at the conference: 1) Normal oral presentations with full written papers; 2) poster presentations (no required paper but abstracts no exceeding 500 words will be included in the proceedings); and 3) oral presentations-professional track (with an optional written paper and a required abstract that does not exceed 500 words). Full papers are expected to have between 8-12 pages but cannot exceed 16 pages. Specific template Styles and Formatting has been created for Titles, Authors, Body abstract, Heading 1, Heading 2, and Heading 3, Figure caption, Table caption, bullet items, and references. Please use these formatting tools to facilitate editorial processing later. Only use those styles that have an 11ACWE in front of the name. If you don’t see the Styles and Formatting feature go to Format>Styles and Formatting in Word 2003 or Press Alt+Crtl+Shift+S in Word 2007. Oral presentation with full paper: This is the traditional type of presentation that has been used in the past in this conference series. Written papers will be due April 30, 2009. Presentations cannot exceed 15 minutes. Poster presentation: In addition to providing an alternate means of content delivery that some participants may wish to use, poster presentations are particularly encouraged for works in progress that wouldn’t yet warrant a full paper. This mechanism will provide an opportunity for students and investigators who are not yet finished a project to present their work and potentially get valuable feedback from their colleagues. Oral presentation-professional track: This type of presentation is intended primarily for engineers, architects and other interested practitioners for presentation of case studies of challenging wind design issues, unique wind- resistant design solutions, wind-related forensic investigations, and other wind problems and solutions. The purpose of the professional track is to actively engage a broader audience than the traditional research community. This track will help make the conference more attractive to professionals interested in wind engineering issues, and thus foster more interaction between the research and professional communities. The final proceedings of the conference will be published in CD-ROM and will include the full papers and abstracts for posters and professional track presentations. SUBMISSION OF PAPERS Papers should be submitted electronically in Word format (.doc) with the filename specified in the notification of acceptance email. The filename should be 11ACWE- firstauthorslastname.doc. If a person submits more than one paper on which he or she is first author, a numeral should be added to the end of the filename (e.g., if for example author Mr. Vega submits two first author papers, the filenames would be 11ACWE-Vega1.doc and 11ACWE-Vega2.doc). If your paper will have a different title than the one submitted for the abstract the author must send a SEPARATE email to 11ACWE@gmail with the subject TITLE CHANGE. The submission method is via email to the firstname.lastname@example.org. You should receive an email confirmation within 24 hours. TABLES AND FIGURES All tables and figures should be numbered. Table titles should be placed above the table. Figure titles should be placed below the figure. Tables and figures may use different fonts and sizes as appropriate, except that tables should contain no more lines and borders than show in the Table 1. Do NOT use colors in your tables, only figures can use colors but make sure that lines or dots in the figures pointing specific features referenced in the text are clear (i.e. so that is not confused with other lines/dots in cases when printed in black and white). A figure caption example is show in Figure 1. Provide only neat images and tables that are easy to interpret (not too crowded tables - columns should not be too close to one another). Do not provide figures or tables that are not referenced in the text or that do not add anything to the content or that repeat information provided in a figure.

Long equations should be continued in a second line using appropriate syntax for mathematical continuation. Equations should be referenced in the text as Equation 1 for example, that is referenced in the text using no abbreviations. The caption of equations should be in parenthesis and next to the right margin. The caption can use the same style as the 11ACWE-Body Text. z P log z (1) 0 ACKNOWLEDGEMENT Acknowledgement should be given when appropriate. REFERENCES References should be numbered sequentially in order of appearance, using the Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics referencing format.
