Instructions for Preparing Papers:

The proceedings of the MEDSI02 workshop will be published by Argonne National Laboratory. Each registered participant will receive a printed copy.

All papers must be submitted electronically before the workshop, and a paper copy turned in at the workshop. The deadline for submitting papers for inclusion in the proceedings is:

Wednesday, September 4, 2002

The papers will be formatted in a single column and published on 8.5" x 11" paper. Submissions will be accepted only in Microsoft Word format (version 97 or 2000).

Please submit the native Word (.doc) file, a PostScript (.ps or .prn) file of the Word document, and all graphics files (e.g., .eps or .gif files) used in figures. See instructions below on how to submit the electronic files.

Page limit: Should not exceed 8 pages.

Templates can be downloaded from the links below for U.S. Letter size paper (8.5" x 11") and A4 size paper (8.27" x 11.69").

U.S. Letter A4 Paper
MS Word 2000 MS Word 2000

Please use these templates to prepare your papers. The easiest way to use the templates is to type your paper into a new Word document and then open both the paper and the template documents. Copy text from the paper (highlight text and press <Ctrl-C>), then go into the template, highlight the text you want to replace (e.g., the title), click on Edit --> Paste Special, select "Unformatted Text" in the selection box, and click OK. Word will paste the text from your paper into the template and use the formatting of the template text you selected.

Poster Preparation:

Specific times when authors should be present by their posters will be posted on the MEDSI02 home page.
