Thank you for submitting an abstract for a Theme Session or Poster Session presentation at The Coastal Society Conference this May in Newport. For the conference proceedings, our standard word processing software will be MS Word 2000 (which can also read WordPerfect 8.0, MS Word '98 for the Mac, and MS Word '97). You may use earlier versions of any of these programs listed above. Save and submit the manuscript as a .doc or as .rtf (rich text format) if .doc is not available. If you are using MS WordXP, please save your file as a MS Word 2000. Your MS Word 2000 files should then be directly uploaded to the TCS-19 submission site.
To ensure consistency in the collection of
papers for the conference proceedings, we will only change documents
using the page setup codes during final formatting for paper
size, font, margins, page numbering, etc. Do not insert any
codes in the text other than for the bold lettering in the paper
title and subtitles. Please use the following:
Times or Times Roman size
All caps in the paper title and title case
for any subheadings.
One line between title and author, two lines
between author and subheading or text, and one line between
subheading and text (see sample)
Use a hard return at the
end of each author line and subheading, and soft returns
within the text except for the end of each paragraph. Our
final reformatting for the cdrom proceedings volume will
change your layout. We will search for widow/orphan lines
or headings and other layout problems.

Your paper, including all text, graphics, appendices,
addresses, and other materials, must be no more than
five (5) pages , single-spaced on standard 8.5"
by 11.0" paper with 1.75" margins on the top/bottom,

Do not use italics, underline, or bold to highlight portions of the text (other than bold for title and subtitles).
If you wish to insert a table in the text, we recommend that you use WordPerfect or MS Word's Table Editor. If you are unfamiliar with MS Word or WordPerfect table features or wish to create a small table, please use tabs to position the rows and columns. Do not use spaces!
Graphics: All graphs, figures, tables, maps, or other non-text material must be in electronic form and included in the MS Word 2000 document as they would appear in the final paper. The MS Word 2000 documents, including all graphics mentioned above will be converted to an Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) file for final compilation. For this reason, we request that you do not insert page numbers or a header or footer.
