Text maximum 4 pages, font calibri 11, margins 2.5 cm throughout, spacing between lines 1.15, no indentation, no additional spacing between paragraphs. Figures and tables must be correlated and appropriately cited in the text. Figures must be of good quality and embedded in the text.

This abstract should include a brief introduction followed by a summary of methods, results and conclusions.

Equations and symbols (mathematical and Greek etc) must be typed. The Greek word may be used instead of the symbol (for example, δ18O or delta18O. Please use metric measurements and symbols.

Remember, the text is of utmost importance, for it is read by 10 to 500 times more people than hear or read the entire article. It should not be a mere recital of the subjects covered, replete with such expressions as “is discussed” and “is described.” It should be a condensation and concentration of the essential qualities of the paper.


Keep figures as simple as possible. Avoid excessive notes.

Please ensure that all figures are of the highest quality. Photographs must be scanned at 300 dpi. You are advised to check how colour illustrations show in black/white for reproduction.

Line drawings should be clear and uncluttered. Please note that text must still be readable after a reduction to 75% of the original size.

  1. Number figures consecutively in the order in which reference is made to them in the text, making no distinction between diagrams and photographs. The most convenient place for placing figures is at the top or bottom of a page. They must not be all together at the end of the paper.
  2. Printouts of PowerPoint presentations will not be accepted for printing in the proceedings.
  3. Insert Figures without frame (except Tables).
  4. Place Figures centered (it is allowed to place 2 figures side by side).
  5. Leave one line between figures and text (before and after).

To avoid problems with the font and mathematical equations, you have to embed the font.  Do not forget to embed the fonts also in the figures and tables.


Keep tables as simple as possible. You can find an example in Table 1.

Table 1. Montly average temperature in ºC (T) precipitation in mm (P) evapotranspiration in mm (ETP) and precipitation during the monitoring period in mm.

References are not allowed to be in footnotes. References to other work in the text should refer to the author or authors and the year of publishing. References should be listed in the reference list, which should be in alphabetical order.  For example: (Patten, 1973) or (Patten and Cuffe, 2006). By three or more authors: first author and et al.  For example: (Patten et al., 2006)

When there are several references to be cited at one place, order them from earliest to latest. For example, …(Walker, 2005; Smith, 2007). If several works by the same author are cited, entries should be chronological and if there is more than one reference of the same year you should add a, b, etc. in the reference and corresponding reference list.  For example: (Patten, 1973b).



The conclusions are a vital part of the paper and should state concisely the most important outcomes of the paper as well as the author’s views of the practical implications of the results.
