All those authors that are submitting their papers not following the requirements of the publishers, must submit their electronic files ONLY in ASCII characters (*.txt) following this instructions. Here we give you an example. You just write everything in the same way, keeping the commands e.g.

\documentstyle[11pt,paspconf]{article} or \title{.....}, etc.

Obviously you must complete with your corresponding text the paper's title, authors names, affiliations and address inside the keys {....}. then you must write the text of your abstract, and the rest of the sections according to the example. You must keep the line separations between each paragraph as in the example in the same way, as well as the commands like \section{Introduction}, of course you are able to change the titles between the keys {...}.

Some other guidelines for formatting are below:

Please try to follow these very basic rules of submission. Remember to send also a paper copy in order to check all the possible mistakes and initiate the peer review process.

If you have figures, please send us in a separate file, including in your SUBJECT line of your e-mail the same rules for the title, but indicating following that title the number of figure between brackets. For example if your oral presentation was made on Thursday at 13:15, and you want to submit you figure 1, the subject line of the e-mail would read: TH1315(figure 1)

REMEMBER that all the electronic submissions should be mailed to

EXAMPLE (please write your ASCII file as follows)



\title{The Minimalist Approach}
\author{M. Headroom}
\affil{Industrial Metaphysics, Inc., 0 Some St., Alluvia, HG 67555}

This example illustrates how to use the WGAS \LaTeX\ macros in a way that is as unobtrusive as possible while still identifying all the important structural parts of the paper.



Reader, this is my paper. Paper, this is our reader (be polite).


The observations upon which this paper is based were taken on Wednesday while I was grocery shopping. I needed a half-gallon of milk, chips and salsa, and a bag of kitty litter. Calibration data were taken on Friday when I went back for a six-pack of beer.


Grocery stores seem to be inordinately crowded on Wednesdays and Fridays (Headroom 1988). The increase in Friday-shopper density can be understood by assuming that many people get paid on Fridays, and by recognizing that such people often do not work on Saturdays and Sundays and can be assumed to be ``stocking up'' for the weekend.

The Wednesday peak is harder to explain, but may be related to the delivery of fresh produce on Tuesday nights. This interpretation depends on the assumption that many people eat sensibly and therefore find fresh produce attractive.

My cats, Hal and Yoda, provided motivation for the initiation of this study.
