The abstract should present in a brief way the purpose of the paper and the most important conclusions achieved; references are not to be included and the maximum length is 400 words.
Equations and notation
The equations presented in the text should be sequentially numbered (number quoted on the right). Units of the International System are to be preferentially used. The meaning of abbreviations should be explained in the text or captions, except when their large number suggests that the inclusion of an appendix is more appropriated.
Tables and figures
The originals should be submitted accordingly to the formats referred above. Captions of figures and tables should be concise and adequate; vertical and horizontal lines on tables are to be used judiciously.
Only the papers referred in the text are to be part of the reference list. Citations in the text should include the name of the author and year of publication; examples are Silva (2000) or (Silva 2000), the latter form to be used when the name of the author is not a part of the text. When more than one paper of the same author and year are referred, a suffix a, b, c should be used, accordingly to the following example: Silva (2000a, 2000b). For papers with more than one author, an abbreviated form of citation is to be used in the text (Silva et al. 2000), and the full citation given in the reference list.
