Congratulations! Your paper has been accepted for oral presentation in ICIEM-2018. You are requested to follow the following guidelines while submitting your final draft to the ICIEM-2018. These guidelines include complete descriptions of the fonts, spacing, and related information for producing your pre-publication form of the manuscript.


The paper must not exceed 8 pages in length, including figures, tables and references. Papers should be typed on A4 size paper, formatted with single columns as shown here. The body text style for all paragraphs should be normal Times new Roman font 10. One single space may separate the section header from the body text and one single space separates the paragraphs. Margins Left = 1”, Right = 0.5”, Top = 0.5” and Bottom = 0.5”


The main title (on the first page) should begin 1 3/16 inches from the top edge of the page, centered, and in Times New Roman 14-point, boldface type, uppercase only. Leave two blank lines after the title.


Author names and affiliations are to be centered beneath the title and printed in Times New Roman 10-point, non-boldface type. Include corresponding author e-mail address. Follow the author information by one blank line before main text.


Figure and table captions should be 10-point Times New Roman, boldface and callouts should be in 10-point scale, non-boldface preferably. Initially capitalize only the first word of each figure caption and table title. Figures and tables must be numbered separately. For example: “Figure 1. ICIEM Muscat”, “Table 1. Waljat College”. Figure captions are to be below the figures. Table titles are to be centered above the tables.


For example, “1. INTRODUCTION”, should be Times New Roman 12-point boldface, uppercase, flush left, with one blank line before, and one blank line after. Use a period (“.”) after the heading number, not a colon.

6.1. Second-Order Headings

As in this heading, they should be Times New Roman 12-point boldface, capitalized each word, flush left, with one blank line before, and one after.

6.1.1. Third-order headings: Third-order headings, as in this paragraph, are discouraged. However, if you must use them, use 11-point Times New Roman, boldface, initially capitalized, flush left, preceded by one blank line, followed by a colon and your text on the same line.


Use footnotes sparingly (or not at all!) and place them at the bottom of the column in the page on which they are referenced. Use Times New Roman 9-point type, single-spaced with 10-point interlining spacing. To help your readers, avoid using footnotes altogether and include necessary peripheral observations in the text (within parentheses, if you prefer, as in this sentence).


These should be brief and placed at the end of the text before the references.


List and number all bibliographical references (Alphabetical order) in 10-point Times New Roman, single-spaced with 10-point interlining spacing, at the end of your paper. When referenced in the text, enclose the citation number in square brackets, for example [1]. Where appropriate, include the name(s) of editors of referenced books.
