Page and formatting guidelines:

The page limit is 18 pages. This is a slightly lower limit than in prior proceedings volumes, which normally allowed 20 pages per paper. However, we have more papers for this volume than is typical for FASL, so it is very important that everyone adhere to the 18-page limit. Please stay at or below this limit.

The formatting guidelines are the same as in previous FASLs: please see this Word template, based on that from prior FASL proceedings volumes.

If you choose not to use the template, please make sure that your document adheres to the following guidelines:

–  US letter page format

–  Margins: left and right=2 inches, top=2 inches, bottom= 2.25 inches, header at 1.5 inches

–  Header: different odd and even, different first page

–  Body text font size (including section headings) = 11 pts, footnotes = 9.5 points, paper title=13 points bold-faced.

–  Set tabs at 1/8 inch distance for the entire document; this will help you when aligning the first and second line in numbered (block) examples.

–  Use the ‘keep lines together’ function for examples and for section titles, to avoid a split over two pages

–  Make sure that any tables and graphs do not spread over two pages; remember that all graphs will be printed in black-and-white, so either avoid using color, or else make sure that the colors will still be distinctive when converted into black-and-white.

–  Please be consistent with formatting the references (see examples in the template).
