  2. Once your paper is accepted, please upload a final DOC or DOCX version with the authors' names in it.
  3. Introduction
    State the problem and objectives of the work and provide an adequate background. Prior work based on the same project and/or data must be referenced, and the unique contribution of the new submission must be stated explicitly.
  4. Results
    Results should be clear and concise.
  5. Discussion
    This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them.
  6. Conclusions

  7. Appendices
    If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on. Similarly for tables and figures: Table A.1; Fig. A.1, etc.
