Papers must be written in English.
Only electronic submissions will be accepted.
Papers not meeting the guidelines will be
returned to the authors.
Format and Length
- Submissions must be no longer than twelve (12) pages
in double column format with standard margins and at least a 10
point font --- larger if possible. This length includes everything:
figures, tables, references, appendices and so forth. Longer submissions
will not be reviewed.
- Provide an abstract of fewer than 200 words.
- Number the pages.
- The paper must be submitted in PDF or Postscript
format. We must be able to display and print your submission exactly
as we receive it and using only standard tools and postscript printers, so
we strongly suggest that you use only standard fonts.
- Make sure that the paper prints well on black-and-white printers, not
color printers. This is especially true for plots and graphs in the paper.
- Make sure that the output has been formatted for printing on LETTER
(8.5" by 11")

submitted to ICNP.
If some of the material in a submission has appeared in a

acceptable if the paper submitted to ICNP provides
substantial additional results compared to the earlier or
