Note: Always use the standard abbreviation of a journal’s name according to the ISSN List of Title Word Abbreviations, see


The tables (numbered and with a heading) and figure legends should be typed on separate sheets of paper and should be self-explanatory without reference to text. Each table must have a title and should be numbered with Arabic numerical (1, 2). Explanatory matter should be given as footnotes. Units, dimensions, terms, symbols, abbreviation etc., recommended by the Systéme International d’ Unités (SI) should be used.

Line drawings may be produced using computer graphics with laser printing, or should be drawn with black India Ink on white paper. Figure caption should be typed in single space and should extend across the width of the figure. The quantity measured should be given alongside the ordinate and abscissa followed by appropriate dimensions in SI units in brackets. Locally used units and measures are not acceptable.


All photographs should be saved as JPEG image with a range of tone and good contrast. If necessary photographs should be supplied as clear black and white prints on glossy paper. A descriptive legend must accompany each illustration and must define all abbreviations used therein.

Numbers, symbols and abbreviations

The metric system (SI) should be used. Only well known abbreviations should be used (e.g, Fig., mm, avg, wt, meq). Symbols should be used to designate elements and compounds and to indicate percent (%). Arabic numerals should be used for numbers except when the number is the first word in the sentence or the use of a numerical would create confusion.

Page numbers

Number all pages, except the first, in the upper right hand corner.

The words: ‘Factory Operational Paper’ must appear above the title.

4. Short communications

 Short communications are intended to encourage the publication of exciting preliminary findings in any area related to sugar crop production, processing and value addition.  Short communications will be subject to the same peer evaluation process as described for Full Papers.

 A short communication may be no longer than1200 words with one table, one figure, and two photos. An Abstract must accompany the Short Communication on submission.  This abstract will be included in the Conference Proceedings.

 Each figure, photograph or table should have a clear caption.  Avoid overloading figures and tables with information and use colour to make them clearer.

 Authors must set up their own posters during 2nd day of the conference.  Poster authors may wish to attach to the board a plastic sleeve containing A4-size handouts of their poster. If they cannot be present at the congress they may designate someone to act on their behalf.

 The programme will include a time slot for a poster session.  During this time authors or their representatives must be in attendance at their poster.  If possible, a brief presentation (5 min maximum) by authors to conference delegates will be included in the session.
