Your contribution may be prepared in LaTeX or Microsoft Word (prefered). You can download Microsoft Word and LaTeX  templates using the links provided below.

The suggested page limit is 6 pages. The main reason to reduce the page limit to 6 page is that most authors want to submit their extended and improved version to special issues or other journals after conference.  Please note the instructions for the special issues which strictly requires that at least 50% of the results presented in the journal paper should be new, the text cannot be the same even for the first 50% with reused results. The same requirements applies to figures and tables.
