Camera ready papers should be up to 10 pages in length - between two and
six pages of text and up to four pages of figures per paper.
The deadline for receipt of camera-ready copy is
April 25. We have been asked by
the conference organiser to inform you that it is a strict deadline. Please
send finished papers by e-mail as an attached document format in Word
or PDF or Postscript to email@example.com.
Instructions for the final version of the paper are below.
Acquiring and submitting screen shots and screen movies for the ERs in
As mentioned in the 'call for papers', participants are encouraged to make
screen capture movies (or some static images if screen capture is too difficult)
of any environments/representations they are presenting. They should be
one or two minutes in length (3 mins at most), and should emphasise the
way that ERs are used in the system. We will distribute these demos via
the web as jpeg or gif images or as movie clips in AVI or Quicktime format.
for details about acquisition and submission.
SUBMISSION OF THE FINAL VERSION OF THE PAPER
To avoid technical problems that arise mainly with figures, all figures
must be sent as separate files in a proper graphical format - GIF, JPG,
EPS, etc. This is in addition to the figures appearing in the paper
as normal.We would prefer the paper to be submitted as a Microsoft Word
document. A zipped style file can be downloaded here: AIED_ER.zip
Layout of the Paper
Papers will not be professionally proof-read and re-formatted. It is therefore
essential that authors follow these guidelines for the final version of
the paper. The paper will be printed pretty much as it is submitted.
Page Set-up: Use US Letter for paper size (8.5'' width and 11''
height) and the following margins: 1" top and bottom and 1.25" left and
right (Apologies to those using the superior metric system!) -- this would
correspond to a printing area of 6" wide by 9" high. The 1.25" margin is
intended to allow for binding.
Fonts and Sizes: The recommended typefont is Times New Roman. As
a second choice, use Times. Only for tables and figures (illustrations)
may you use Helvetica, Univers or other sans-serif fonts. Keep italics
and/or bold for special text parts.
Recommended typefont sizes:
For the title: 16 pts.
For the main text (including headings and captions): 11 pts.
For footnotes, references, figures and tables: 10 pts.
Title: Type the title approx. 2 cm below the first line of the page.
Centre the title (horizontally) on the page. Leave approx. 1 cm between
the title and the name(s) of the author(s) typed left-justified in capitals.
On the next (and following) line(s) type the address(es) for correspondence
left-justified in italics. Please include email addresses and URLs when
possible in the address.
Abstract: Type the abstract approx. 1 cm below the address(es),
no more than 200 words.
Use single line spacing.
The main text (including the abstract) should be fully justified. Start
a new paragraph by indenting it 0.75 cm from the left margin (and not by
inserting a blank line), except under a heading and subheading. Only
use italics if you want to emphasise specific parts of the main text.
Headings: Headings, subheadings and subsubheadings should be
left-justified. Do not include references to the literature, illustrations
or tables in headings and subheadings. A HEADING should be in bold and
capitals, with two blank lines before and one blank line after it. A Subheading
should be in bold and lowercase, with one blank line before and after it.
A Subsubheading should be in bold and italics, with one blank line before
and after it.
Illustrations and Tables: All illustrations must be numbered
consecutively (i.e., not section-wise), using Arabic numbers. All illustrations
should be centred, except for very small figures (no wider than 7 cm),
which may be placed side by side. Centre figure captions beneath the figure.
Do not assemble figures at the back of your article, but place them as
close as possible to where they are mentioned in the main text. To avoid
technical problems that arise mainly with figures, all figures must also
be sent as separate files in a proper graphical format - GIF, JPG, EPS,
etc. All tables must be numbered consecutively (in Arabic numbers). Table
headings should be placed above the table.
References: References should be listed in alphabetical order
at the end of your paper (under the heading 'References') but before any
