Abstract Requirements

Abstracts may be no longer than 1 page, including all text, figures, and references. Please note that after the submission deadline the list and the order of the authors cannot be modified, and must remain unchanged in the final version of the manuscript.

Each accepted abstract be presented by one of the authors’ in-person at the conference site according to the schedule published. Presentation by anyone else than one of the co-authors (proxies, video or remote cast) is not planned. One of the authors must register for the conference and must register before the author registration deadline. Failure to do so will result in automatic withdrawal of the paper from the conference program.

For posters, one author must be present at the poster during the scheduled session.

File Size Limit

Authors will be permitted to submit files weighing up to 5 MB.

Writing Language

English is the official language of the conference. As a result, all abstracts must be entirely submitted (and presented) in English.


Documents should be formatted for standard US Letter. Copy/paste your abstract in the template for the standard required format or use the below guidelines:

  • All text and figures must be contained in a 178 mm x 229 mm (7” x 9”) area ;
  • Left/Right margins must be set at 1,57 cm (0.62”) ;
  • Top margin must be set at 1,9 cm (0.75”) ;
  • The top 50 mm (2") of the page is reserved for the title, author(s), and affiliation(s). These items should be centred across both columns, starting at 35 mm (1.375”) from the top of the page ;


To achieve the best viewing experience for the review process and conference proceedings, we strongly encourage authors to use Times-Roman or Computer Modern fonts. If a font face is used that is not recognized by the submission system, your document will not be reproduced correctly.

Font Size

Use a font size that is no smaller than 9 points throughout the abstract, including figure captions. In a 9-point type font, capital letters are 2 mm high. For 9-point type font, there should be no more than 3.2 lines/cm (8 lines/inch) vertically. This is a minimum spacing; 2.75 lines/cm (7 lines/inch) will make the proposal much more readable. Larger type sizes require correspondingly larger vertical spacing.


The paper title must appear in boldface letters. Do not use LaTeX math notation ($x_y$) in the title.
The title must be representable in the Unicode character set. Lastly, try to avoid uncommon acronyms in the title.

Authors List

The authors' name(s) and affiliation(s) appear below the title in capital and lower case letters. AVW11 does not perform blind reviews, so be sure to include the author list in your submitted paper. Papers with multiple authors and affiliations may require two or more lines for this information. The order of the authors on the document should exactly match in number and order the authors typed into the online submission form.
