Following the previously mentioned paper writing instruction, authors are requested to submit a full paper as a PDF file. The requirements of submitted PDF files are “Embedding all fonts” and “Bitmapped image over 300 dpi resolution”. Do not set a password to the submitted PDF file. Never use multi-byte characters at any place of your paper including figures and tables. For example, the Chinese, the Korean and the Japanese characters should not be used.
