Please submit your paper electronically to our FTP site.

• The paper should be uploaded at:

• Please prepare your U.S. Letter-size (8.5" x 11") paper as plain ASCII PostScript only, with NO encoding, condensing, or encapsulation.

• Please use TrueType 1 fonts wherever possible.

• Fonts MUST be from Latin 1 Fontset. Our PostScript printers will not recognize any other fonts.

• Do not use bitmapped versions of fonts such as Computer Modern if you can avoid it.

• Do not use Ryumin fonts; we do not have this font, and errors will occur when we try to print the file. Please use Helvetica or Times-Roman, only.

• Guidelines for generating and submitting PostScript files are available on our Internet site at: http://computer.org/author/psguide.htm

• Some older FTP applications (RapidFTP included) may require the user to choose a remote operating system type. In these instances choose: "MS Windows NT - Unix".


• IMPORTANT NOTE: Please use your last name, first initial when naming and sending your file to the above FTP site, followed by a keyword from your paper title. For example, the filename for J. Smith submitting the paper titled: "On Urquhart's C Logic" would be <smithj_urquhart.ps>

• If you are submitting two or more files, please number them: smithj_urquhart1.ps, smithj_urquhart2.ps, etc.

• If there is a file with the same name already in the directory, please use a variation.

• Files are automatically moved off the FTP site. Please do not re-post your paper if you do not see it on the site.


When transferring files to the FTP site, if you have a choice between ASCII and binary modes, use binary. Although ASCII mode works well most of the time, binary mode incurs fewer problems.
