2.1. Basic layout
Your page format should be US Letter, and your paper should be a maximum of 15 pages (25 pages for invited speakers), single-spaced. Set margins to 1 inch on all four sides. Please do not number your pages and leave the header and footer empty; they will be added later. The basic font for your paper should be Times or Times New Roman. If you are using special fonts for IPA symbols or trees, make sure you embed all the fonts when making the pdf file. Please justify your text on both sides.
2.2. Title, author(s), and affiliation(s)
The title of your paper should be in 14 point bold. Leave a blank line, and then type your name(s) in italic. On the next line, type your affiliation(s) in italic. The title, the author’s name(s) and affiliation(s) should be centered on the page. Leave two blank lines, and start the body of your paper.
Section headings (including sub-headings and sub-sub headings) are left justified in 12 point bold with the first letter capitalized and the rest of the heading in lower case. See examples in this file. No more than 3 levels of headings should be used.
2.4. Figures and tables
Figures and tables should be centered on the page. Captions should follow the figures and tables, centered, with a 0.5 inch indentation on both sides. Figure x or Table y should be in 12 point bold. The rest of the caption should be in regular 12 point.
Examples should be set out from the text with an empty line, with continuous numbering (1), (2), etc. Use roman letters followed by a dot for sub-examples, as shown below. Please make sure that your example numbers are consistent with your text references.
(1) a. This is an example.
(2) This is a free-standing example.
As shown in the examples below, “References” should be in 12 point bold, centered on the page, separated by two empty lines from the end of the last section and one line from the references. Each reference should be in regular 12 point font, with a hanging indent of 0.25 inch, justified on both sides. There should be no line separating individual references.
2.8. Authors’ contact information
