Below, you will find guidelines for file and graphic formats.

You can obtain help by e-mail at epe2003@carte-blanche.fr .
Don’t hesitate to use it before uploading your paper.

All operations need that the original file is compliant with the general guidelines.
A special care should be taken for countries that use special fonts: double byte fonts
(Asian countries), East European fonts,…
The help desk by e-mail will help you to solve these problems.

4.- Graphics

All graphics must be inserted in the PDF document. Graphics, pictures and other non-text elements could increase unnecessarily the file size.

The use of JPG or GIF format is the best solution to decrease the total file size of your document.
