Abstract. This meta-paper describes the style to be used in the paper. For papers in English, you should add just an abstract and for the papers in Portuguese, we also ask for an abstract in Portuguese (“resumo”). In both cases, abstracts should not have more than 10 lines and must be in the first page of the paper.

Resumo. Este meta-artigo descreve o estilo a ser usado na confecção de artigos e resumos de artigos para publicação nos anais do II SMCT. É solicitada a escrita de resumo e abstract apenas para os artigos escritos em português. Artigos em inglês, deverão possuir apenas abstract. Nos dois casos, o autor deve tomar cuidado para que o resumo (e o abstract) não ultrapassem 10 linhas cada, sendo que ambos devem estar na primeira página do artigo.

1. General Information

            All full papers and posters (short papers) submitted to the II SMCT, including any supporting documents, should be written in English or in Portuguese. The format paper should be A4 with single column, 3.5 cm for upper margin, 2.5 cm for bottom margin and 3.0 cm for lateral margins, without headers or footers. The main font must be Times, 12 point nominal size, with 6 points of space before each paragraph. Page numbers must be suppressed in the final version.

The papers shall not exceed 4 pages.

2. First Page

            The first page must display the paper title, the name and address of the authors, the abstract in English and “resumo” in Portuguese (for papers written in Portuguese). The title must be centered over the whole page, in 16 point boldface font. Author names must be centered in 12 point font, bold, all of them disposed in the same line, separated by commas. Addresses must be centered in 12 point font. The abstract must be in 12 point font, indented 0.8cm on both sides.

3. Sections and Paragraphs

            Section titles must be in boldface, 13pt, flush left. There should be an extra 12 pt of space before each title. Section numbering is optional. The first paragraph of each section should not be indented; the first lines of subsequent paragraphs should be indented by 1.27 cm.

3.1. Subsections

The subsection titles must be in boldface, 12pt, flush left.

4. Figures and Captions

            Figure and table captions should be centered if less than one line (Figure 1), otherwise justified and indented by 0.8cm on both margins, as shown in Figure 2. The font must be Helvetica, 10 point, boldface, with 6 points of space before and after each caption.

In tables, do not use colored or shaded backgrounds, and avoid thick, doubled, or unnecessary framing lines. When reporting empirical data, do not use more decimal digits than warranted by their precision and reproducibility. Table caption must be placed before the table (see Table 1) and the font used must also be Helvetica, 10 point, boldface, with 6 points of space before and after each caption.

Figure 1. A typical figure

Figure 2. This figure is an example of a figure caption taking more than one line and justified considering margins mentioned in Section 4.

5. Images

            All images and illustrations should be in black-and-white, or gray tones. The image resolution on paper should be about 600 dpi for black-and-white images, and 150-200 dpi for grayscale images.  Do not include images with excessive resolution, as they may take hours to print, without any visible difference in the result.
