All conference presenters are encouraged to submit their manuscripts for possible inclusion in the proceedings volume. All registrants will receive a copy of the volume. Unlike our previous conferences, the volume for our fourth international conference will be a bit different than in the past because AUB Press has agreed to publish and distribute the volume. AUB press will require an external peer review and will likely publish fewer papers than in the past. This change will help us to more broadly distribute our proceedings volume and it will also raise the profile and quality of publication.
Please submit your manuscripts by 29 February 2012 to firstname.lastname@example.org as an email attachment in the form of a Microsoft Word document. The manuscripts are limited to fifteen pages (double-spaced, 12 point Times New Roman) inclusive of endnotes, bibliography and illustrations. For referencing procedures and other stylistic issues, please follow the Chicago Manual of Style, using endnotes. Please find below a sample of the manuscript format:
Title of Paper (Times New Roman, 12pt., Bold, Centered)
Author's Name (Times New Roman, 12pt, Regular, Centered)
Affiliation (Times New Roman, 12pt., Regular, Centered; If you are affiliated with a University, please type the name of the university only)
Body of Text (Times New Roman, 12pt, Regular, Double-spaced)
Endnotes (Times New Roman, 10pt., Regular, Single-spaced)
PS: Maximum number of pages including endnotes is 15 pages
For referencing procedures and other stylistic issues, please follow the Chicago Manual of Style using the endnotes method. Please refer to the examples below for citing articles, books and other material. The following examples are copied from the Chicago Manual of Style (p.596):
Citations of books, articles, and other materials in endnotes include the following elements: author (or editor or complier standing in place of author), title (and usually subtitle), and date of publication. For books, the place and publisher are also given; for articles, the journal name, volume number, year of publication, page number (s), and, often, the issue number. For other printed sources - electronic works or audiovisual material, for example - the medium is indicated. For online works, retrieval information and sometimes the date of access are included. Certain elements are omitted in shortened citations.
When referring to the same citation more than once, please include all elements when citing the first time (as in examples 1-3 below), and then use the basic short form afterwards. The most common short form consists of the last name of the author and the main title of the work cited, usually shortened if more than four words, as in examples 4-6 below.
For further details on citations, please refer to the Chicago Manual of Style.
