Papers must begin with a brief and concise abstract.
All papers submitted to the EUROMECH 529
Cardiovascular Fluid Mechanics have to be formatted in
accordance with these instruction
version of the document serves as a template.
Submitted papers that do not follow this formatting style will
Proceedings of the EUROMECH 529
Mechanics will be available to
Papers submitted and published will only be accepted in
Adobe PDF format with embedded fonts. Aim to have a file
size no larger than
4 megabytes. Do not include page numbers
in the final manuscript. The
F file must be named
, where XXXX is the paper number
assigned to your paper.
All papers must adhere to the specified format.
4.1 Length of paper
Offered papers should not exceed four (4) pages. Papers that
exceed the four
ge limit will not be published.
4.2 Main text
The main text of the paper is in a Times Roman font with a
font size of 9 points. The main text is justified. There is a
blank line between paragraphs. The first word in a paragraph
is not indented.
All sections and subsections except the Abstract and
References are numbered. Section titles are in boldface
point Times Roman font. Sub
numbered in the style 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, etc. Subsection titles are in
point Times Roman font.
4.4 Title and list of authors
The title is in a 14
point boldface Arial or Helvetica font. It
should be in lower case. The first letter of a major word should
be in upper case.
The names of each author should be in a 10
Arial or Helvetica font. Numbered superscripts indicating
authors’ affiliations should be indicated above the respective
authors’ names. The authors’ affiliations are also in 10
Arial or Helvetica font, and include the institution, po
and country. Include the respective numbered superscript of
the authors’ institution at the front of the institution by
If all authors are from the same institution, superscripts are not
needed. Only the email address of the first author
5. FIGURES AND TABLES
Figures and tables are centred in the column of text. Neither
should fall outside the normal printed area of the page, which
is 170 mm wide by 248 mm high. Text in tables and figures
should be no smaller than font siz
e 8. Figures and tables are
sequentially numbered and labelled. Figure and table caption
tags (e.g. “
”) are in a 9
Helvetica font while captions are in a 9
point Arial or
Helvetica font. If the caption is a single line, t
hen it should be
centred (see Table 1). If the caption is more than one line
long, then it should be justified. Figure 1 and Table 1 are
provided as examples. Although colour can be used in tables
and figures, it is strongly encouraged, where possible,
ensure that details are clear in black and white copies.
. This figure is centred. The caption is justified,
not centred because it is more than one line long.
. The table and caption are centred.
All equations (mathematical and chemical) should be centred.
If an equation is numbered, the number should be flush against
the right margin. Some care should be
taken in ensuring that
long mathematical expressions are split correctly over lines, as
If necessary use “times” (
) at the end of a line to indicate
multiplication is to be carried over to the next line.
Use a hyphen (
) for compound words (three
dimensional), to link numbers, nouns or names (e.g.

marks correctly, as in “correct”
Abbreviations and acronyms should be defined when
used the first time, e.g. PIV (Particle Image
Try to avoid isolated lines of text where, for example, a
paragraph spills over a page. Often
a slight rewording
resolves the problem.
Avoid wasted white space around figures or a last page
that is almost empty.
Do not use footnotes.
8. FORMAT OF REFERENCES
References should be listed at the end of the paper in
alphabetical order (by first au
thor) and are formatted as shown
by the examples at the end of this document. They may be
cited by reference numbers or by author(s) with reference
numbers. For example, you can use “Wong
” or just
“”. Quinn and Militzer  is a journal arti
cle,  is a thesis,
 is a paper from a conference proceeding,  is a chapter
from a book and  is a book.
Journal titles, conference
names and book names should be italicised and should not be
The conclusions section
should contain a brief summary.
