Abstract Submission
Best Poster Award









International Nano-Optoelectronics Workshop

Luga and St. Petersburg, Russia
August 10 - August 22, 2014


Abstract submission

Submission of Abstracts

The length of the abstract (together with figures), prepared in accordance with the Workshop LaTeX style, must be 2 pages for both invited and students abstracts.

The important deadline is:

By June 06, 2014,

Authors are required to submit on-line:

  • compressed electronic file of the abstract prepared in the Workshop style that should comprise a LaTeX file for text and graphic files for figures

  • final PDF-file of the abstract with figures

  • short biography of the main author in Word (500 characters) and a photo (jpeg)

Note: the LaTeX style is strongly recommended to be used. If you have never worked with the LaTeX, you may also send your abstract in Word, but you are still asked to follow the general guidelines below.

During the Proceedings compilation we will use electronic versions of your final PDF-files based on LaTeX source in order to avoid any misunderstandings.

The name of the principal author — the person who has registered as a participant and will present the abstract at the Workshop — should be marked against the other authors.

For the abstracts to appear in the Proceedings it is necessary to follow this tight schedule. The Workshop Organizers and Editorial Group appreciate your understanding.

Workshop LaTeX Style

The Workshop LaTeX style (nano2cmr.sty), LaTeX template (template.tex and template.pdf), samples of the abstract (sample.tex and sample.pdf) and two figures are included in the template.zip

The template contains some useful examples and comments which will help an author to prepare the LaTeX source code of an abstract.

If anyone does not have necessary LaTeX environment for abstract preparation, he(she) can display the LaTeX formatting of template.tex and sample.tex, opening corresponding PDF-files in Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Putting together the control sequences (commands) from template.tex and appropriate places of the template printout, anyone can create a LaTeX source code for his or her own abstract. Possible program errors, which may occur at LaTeX translation of an abstract, will be corrected during Proceedings composition.

Graphic Files

In preparing a graphic file, please, keep in mind that a printed illustration cannot exceed 86 mm in width and 160 mm in height. Lettering, line thickness and other details should be adequate to maintain the acceptable size of the final output: 8–10 points font size and 0.4–1.2 points line thickness are recommended. Bold fonts for lettering should be used only in special symbol formatting (as vectors etc.). Color images are unacceptable (yellow or lightblue line in diagrams will be unreadable in grayscale output). In order to get the best results, graphic files have to meet the following requirements:

  • text included in an illustration should be saved as fonts, not as curves

  • figure captions and numbers should not be included in graphic files

  • if a figure consists of several parts (e.g. (a), (b), etc), the part designations should be included at an appropriate place of the figure

  • gray-scale images included in EPS-file should be with 100–150 dpi resolution

  • gray-scale images should not be in RGB mode

  • files should not include a TIFF or bitmap preview and should have a bounding box which encloses just a figure and not the whole page.

Along with the EPS-files, if it is possible, please send the native graphic files in the following formats:

  • Adobe Illustrator

  • AutoCAD (*.dxf)

  • CorelDraw

  • Grapher

  • Microcal Origin

  • SlideWriter

  • Mathcad

  • Micrografx Draw

  • Microsoft Graph

  • WordPerfect Graphic

Note: Please attach your photo along with other graphic files.

File naming

To avoid any losses or confusions during on-line submission of abstracts and proceedings compilation, please, strictly follow the rules for file naming according to the following examples:

Principal author

* Files may be compressed by "zip", or "rar".

Please do not use any text-extension to file names (as Abstract, iNOW2014 etc.) Only surname of the Principal Author + number for figures. If you submit more than one abstract, please see the last line of the table.

File sending

After completing the registration, please, follow the on-line instructions on a corresponding page.
