Final Paper
and Extended Abstract
Template

Explanation of Specifications



Introductory Remarks

You need first to submit an abstract via the website of up to 250 words for consideration for acceptance by
the Technical Committee. If accepted
, you are then requested to prepare a paper of up to ten pages and a
two
-
page extended abstract for presentation at the conference. Your paper and extended abstract will be
published on a CD
-
ROM as part of the conference proceedings, and extended abstracts

only will also be
included in an A4 book to be published and distributed to all conference delegates. The extended
abstract should provide an overview of the full paper, including introduction, key findings and conclusions,
and, where appropriate, figure
s and tables should be included. The two
-
page extended abstract is an
opportunity to promote your paper and encourage conference attendees and subsequent readers to look
up your full paper on the CD
-
ROM.


To ensure uniformity of appearance, all Concrete

20
11

final papers
and extended abstracts
should
conform to the following specifications, as shown on th
is
Concrete

2011

Paper
Template

(see pages 4
and 5)
. If your paper
or your abstract
deviates significantly from these specifications, the p
ublisher

may
not

be able to include
them. The following specifications apply to both the full paper and the two
-
page
extended abstract.


A4 paper Margins



The text shall be justified w
ith a

2.5 cm margin on the left and right hand side of each page.



Top and bottom page mar
gins shall be 2.0 cm



The rest of the text (apart from the title, author’s details and abstract section) shall be justified on
the page with a left and right margin of 2.5 cm.



Leave 2 spaces after a full stop before commencing the next sentence.


Required P
oint Sizes

The required font size for the body of the text is 10 point in Arial.


Line Spacing

Single line spacing is required.


Title

The title should be in bold and centred across the top of the first page in 14 point Arial. Capitalise only the
first l
etter of each main
word. The title of should be exactly the same
.



Authors' Names and Addresses

The authors' names, job title and company/affiliation should be centred below the title. These lines should
be in 10 point type. If you cannot fit all authors’

names across the page, please continue listing the
remaining authors’ names on a second row, underneath the first.

Underline

the name of the author who
intends to present the paper at the conference (should it be accepted after peer review).


Synopsis

The

Synopsis should commence with the word 'Synopsis' followed by a colon and two blank spaces (not
blank lines). The text of the Synopsis of 100
-
200 words single
-
spaced should then follow. It should contain
a summary of the purpose of the paper and the concl
usions.


Keywords

Allow one blank line between the Synopsis and the Keywords. The word “Keywords” should be at the left
margin in bold followed by a colon and two blank spaces (not blank lines). Print up to 10 keywords that
best suit the topic of the paper
.




Note:


The Title, Authors’ Names and Affiliations, Synopsis and Keywords should be exactly
the same on both the full paper and the two
-
page extended abstract.


Text

Allow one blank line between Keywords and the text of the
full
paper

(and the text of
the two
-
page
extended abstract)
. Regarding "text", fill each page before proceeding to the next.


Headings

Major headings are to be left justified in a bold font without an underline. They may be numbered, if so
desired. Font size: 11 point.


Subheadings

Subheadings should be in a bold font and in italics. They should start at the left
-
hand margin on a
separate line. Font size: 11 point recommended.


Sub
-
subheadings

Sub
-
subheadings are to be in a bold font and in 10 point font size. The heading and tex
t should be
indented
.


References

References should be indicated in the text by consecutive numbers as they occur in the text and in
parenthesis eg. Smith (1). The numeral should be printed on the same line as the text and not raised
above it. Each refer
ence should be listed in full at the end of the text (in sequence) as follows:


1.

Smith, A, "Mechanics of Conferences", Proceedings of the International Conference on Concrete,
1
-
4 August 1998, Sydney, Australia, pp 21
-
29. (
Journal titles may be underlined)
.


List the references at the end of the paper in the order that they first occur in the main text of the paper.


Acknowledgments

If required, you may recognise the contribution of research colleagues, employees and the like, who have
contributed to the int
ellectual effort in the paper and/or its associated research.


Illustrations

For best reproduction and handling of any illustrations, they should be included in your word processor
file. Make sure that you number and include a caption for each figure used
. Photographs should only be
used if essential to the clarity of the paper. If used they should be black and white with clear contrast and
highly glossed. Colour photos will be reproduced in black and white.


Tables


Tables should be placed within the pa
per as close as possible to the location where they are first
mentioned in the text. All tables should have headings and be numbered. The table number and heading
should be typed in bold.
T
he first letter of
the
main word
s

in the heading should be in
ca
pitals and the
heading
should be
centred above the table
. Include a

blank line between the heading and the table.
Ensure that all tables are complete on one page. Large tables may be appended to the paper (see below)
or may be typed in the long direction
of the page to take up the entire page. In the latter case the top of
the table and heading should be against the left hand side, i.e. as viewed from the normal bottom of the
page. The font size used in the table should be large enough to be clear and re
adable in the final
Proceedings.


SI Units

Only SI units are to be used in the text eg, MPa not N/mm
2
.


Use of Proprietary or Brand Names

Proprietary or brand names are
not to be used

in the text (or visual aids). Authors are advised to use non
-
commerciall
y identifying or generic names eg. Brand A or B, reinforcement from Company X, admixture of
melamine base.


Page Numbers, Headers and Footers

Please do not include page numbers, headers, footers or any Concrete 20
11

Conference identifications.
These will
be inserted by the Concrete 20
11

Proceedings Publisher.


Page Limit

There is a maximum page limit of ten (10) pages

for the full paper and two (2) pages for the extended
abstract
. Th
ese

page limit
s

include any appendices.


Appendices

Appendices are supple
mentary or support material which is important to strengthen the technical
argument of the paper, but not necessary within the text. They are useful to keep the paper free of
lengthy mathematical derivations, calculations, worked examples and large charts

or diagrams. If more
than one, appendices should be lettered A, B etc, eg. Appendix A.


Conclusions

These guidelines must be adhered to as the overall quality of the Con
crete

2011

Proceedings publication
depends on you. Thank you for your cooperation an
d contribution. We look forward to welcoming you at
Concrete

2011
. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Concrete

2011

Conference Secretariat.
