Instructions and Sample for Camera-Ready Copies (A4)
Eldon Y. Li, National Chengchi University, Taiwan, eli@calpoly.edu
Waiman Cheung, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, China, wcheung@cuhk.edu.hk

The instructions on this template only apply to papers that have been accepted for presentations in the conference and have paid for the registration fee. It should be noted that your paper for the Proceedings will be reproduced directly from the pages that you are submitting. Please follow these format instructions carefully. Papers should be sized as this page in single-column format.

Pleasse standard A4 paper size for your format. Please set the font to 10 point type and the Times New Roman font. The paragraph must be single-spaced. Save and submit your paper in MS-Word’s DOC format, not in PDF format, because we need to number your pages.

Keywords: Format instruction, ICEB, e-business, electronic commerce, headers and footers.

Header and Footer

Each page should include a header and a footer. Top margin for the header, and the bottom margin for the footer should be one centimeter. The header is right-justified containing the last name(s) of the author(s). The footer should be centered with the conference name, e.g., The 2015 International Conference on Electronic Business, Taipei, December 6-10, 2015. Both the header and the footer should be in Italic font.

The top and bottom margins for the text should be 2 centimeters. Those for left and right are 1.5 centimeters.

The title of your paper should be in bold face, all caps, single-spaced, and centered across the top of the first page.

The name of author(s), affiliation(s), address(es), telephone number(s), fax(es), and e-mail address(es) should be centered with initial caps. Do not use titles such as Dr., Professor, etc.

First-level headings
All headings should be in bold face. First-level headings should be centered and set in caps. Subheadings
Second-level subheadings should be set flush left with initial caps of all words. Third-level subheadings should be set flush left with initial cap and italic font. Please do not use headings other than these three types. A one-line space should separate these sub-headings from the preceding text.

Introduce the paper with an abstract of approximately 100 words. Begin with centered heading "ABSTRACT" set above the single-spaced abstract text. The abstract should properly describe the findings or arguments presented in the paper.

Keywords should be set flush left one line below Abstract with no more than 20 words.

Follow the abstract with a first-level heading that introduces the body of the paper. All paragraphs should begin flush left (no paragraph indent) and right justified. Single-space the body of the paper. A one-line space should be placed between two paragraphs.

Figures and Tables
Figures and tables should be placed as close as possible to where they are cited. First-level captions state the table or figure number and may be followed on the same line by second-level captions. Figure captions should be place below the figure while table captions above the table.

Calling References
Bracketed numbers, i.e. [1] or [2, p.10] should be used in the body of the text to call references. If more than one reference is to be called at once, the following format should be used: [4] [6] [11, p.5].

Footnotes Free
The use of footnotes is not allowed.

All equations should be placed on separate lines and numbered consecutively, with the equation numbers placed within parentheses and aligned against the right margin.

Ri = f(Xi)          (1)


References should be listed at the end of the paper and include only those documents cited in the text of the paper. The format styles should follow those listed in http://iceb.johogo.com/styles/. However, different from journal format, entries in the proceedings should appear in alphabetical order and should be numbered with the numbers placed in brackets (see example below).
