How to prepare your manuscript

Your proceedings paper should be formatted by the LaTeX system in accordance with the ICRC2003 style guideline specified by a style file prepared by ICRC2003 LOC. For submission, we require to send a SINGLE archive file which contains following files:

  1. A LaTeX Source text file named with your family name (e.g. author.tex if your family name is author) created using the style file specialized for ICRC2003 proceedings: [Note that we accept only LaTeX files using this style as it is. If you need other format (MSword), please contact LOC to the e-mail address shown at the bottom of this page.]
  2. EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) or PS (PostScript) figure(s) if any (e.g. figure1.eps) [See the sample source to see how to include figures in your paper.]
  3. A PDF (Portable Document Format) file generated by the LaTeX source and figures (e.g. author.pdf) [We need a PDF file in order to ensure the final image of your proceedings paper looks like what you expect.]

These files must be archived to a single file for submission in gzipped tar, ZIP, LZH or SIT format (see "Tips" below).

Here is an example session of preparing an archive file on UNIX-based systems:

# vi author.tex [edit a LaTeX source file]
# convert figure.gif figure.eps [convert a GIF graphic file to EPS]
# latex author [compile the source to get a DVI file]
# dvipdfm author [convert the DVI file to PDF]
# ls
  author.tex author.pdf figure.eps tsukuba.sty
# tar cvfz author.tgz author.tex figure.eps author.pdf [make an archive]
Then author.tgz is the archive file to be e-mailed.

About the style file

The sample file shown above itself is an instruction of using the style file "tsukuba.sty" [icrc2003.pdf ]. Source in gzipped tar is here ("icrc2003.tar.gz").
