Abstract format

The accompanied Word file (see below) has been created to maintain an uniform style through the abstract book. Notice that Times New Roman must be the only font used through the text. If you need to include symbols please use the 'Symbol' command at the 'Insert' menu.
You can use either platform Mac or PC and the 97/98 Word version or newer. You only need to type the text directly on each window maintaining the style of the section. Overwritting the text of the example is the simplest way.
Please notice that the whole abstract should occupy only one A4-side. If you decide to include one figure or table please keep this space limit. Do not change the case size. The styles prefixed of the text are (see the example):

Use uppercase. 14 pt., bold. Justified.
Authors and filiation:
Authors in full name (Name, Initial, Surname); Please underline the presenting author. Put address in another line. 12 pt., Italic. Unjustified.
Body text:
Use no indentation. 12 pt., Normal style.
When needed. Use the space provided. Type references in short as in example. 10 pt., Normal style. Leave empty if there are no references.
When needed. Use the space provided. 10 pt., Normal style.

Please be sure that your abstract does not occupy more than one A4 side!
