The general instructions to prepare the chapters for the Book of the 12th Congress of the AIEC from the distinct types of contributions are similar, although the maximum length varies depending on the contributions: Plenaries and State of the Art (6 pages), Oral communications (4 pages) and Posters (3 pages), following the corresponding model attached.



The manuscript will be published in black and white.

  1. Use the document EXAMPLE in format of Microsoft Word in PC. We recommend doing first a copy of the document, renaming the file with the Surname and Initials of the first author (ej. López J.doc), and on the same document rewriting header, title, authors, address and text.
  2. Maintain the margins of this document and the type and size of the letter (arial 9). All the text has to be written using simple space.
  3. Write the headers as in the document: in odd pages the authors and in even pages an abbreviated title, all this in arial 9. In the first page there will not be header.
  4. TITLE in capital letters, bold and centered. Authors: Initial of the name followed by the surname and centered. Address in italics, adjusted to the left.
  5. TEXT: it is suggested the following order: Abstract, Introduction, Material and methods, Results, Discussion, Acknowledgements and Bibliography. Use numerical bibliographic references to save space and the format shown in the example.
  6. FIGURES and TABLES. The Figures and the Tables have to be numbered. The figures need figure captions and the tables a title. Insert the illustrations in the text in the suitable place.

1) the complete word file, built according to the instructions above ,which will be used to compile the book but may suffer some formatting losses when opening in another PC
