Instructions for author: writing an abstract to be submitted to CMIS2020
First A. Author, Presenting Author and Third B.C. Author
Write affiliation here. If you need more than one affiliation use numbering.
This document will help you prepare your abstract (maximum 1 page, including figure an references) for CMIS2020. We encourage you to use this template to write your abstract as it contains all the necessary styles and page set-up and is ready to use.
Avoid individual formatting of headings and text as much as possible. Use the paragraph styles as defined in this document to format the layout of your abstract. The abstract may contain no more than one figure (a single figure spans the entire width, see for example Figure 1, composed of two sub-figures). You may include equations and references.
Figure 1: Soft-EHL problem: (a) mesh in undeformed configuration, (b) σzz component of the Cauchy stress tensor in the deformed configuration.
Set-up: Font is Times New Roman. Use A4 paper with top and bottom margins of 2.54 cm (1 inch) and left and right margins of 3.17 cm (1.25 inches). Do not include page numbers nor page header/footer. Footnotes are not allowed.
