How to Get Organized
How to Create your Proceedings Paper
Proceedings Paper Template is a Microsoft Word template using a one-column format for your Proceedings paper. You may use this template for your content. Some important features include:
Page number centered in the footer
Paper Number in the header (your paper number was provided with your paper acceptance email)
the author's by line,
code that is embedded in a paragraph or sentence,
code that is in it's own separate paragraph, and
A sample layout
NOTE: You are not required to use this template. If your paper was prepared for SAS Global Forum 2009, the format is just fine
. except you need to change the paper number
Please use the proceedings paper template (described above - this way is easiest), or use a single-spaced,
one column per page format and include page numbers. Remember to include
Proper trademark references and the trademark citation
Acknowledgements and references
