The Abstract should describe original scientific work. Note that the word “Abstract” here means an “Extended Summary” or a “Mini-Paper” rather than, say, 50 lines of plain text only. In the 1-2 page Abstract (the produced final pdf file), there should also be some formulae/figures/tables and references. The Abstract should include some (preliminary) results, e.g., formulae derived or measurement/simulation results obtained.
It is understandable and acceptable that the authors of accepted Abstracts continue/extend/improve the related research work before submitting the 8-page Full Paper some months later.
Typesetting the Abstract
The Abstract must be typset with LaTeX using the conference class file scee2018.cls. Do not use Microsoft Word or any other word processor to typeset your Abstract, as it will not be accepted.
You may use any program to draw figures, but save your figures as Encapsulated Postscript (EPS) files. Then, include these EPS figures into your Abstract. To generate your bibliography, you may either use LaTeX directly or use BibTeX.
You can download an archive abstract-template-scee2018.zip with an example template and other necessary files required to generate an example Abstract. Details on the content follow:
- scee2018.cls the conference LaTeX class file
- author.tex the text body template
- authorfig1.eps a figure (EPS file)
- authorref.tex a bibliography template for direct use in LaTeX
or authorref.bib a bibliography database for BibTeX users
- author.pdf a ready, printable Abstract (which is not required to generate the Abstract)
Your Abstract pdf file should be named so that they begin with your last name followed by the .pdf extension.
