We prepared a template which will help you in formatting.

Not following the template / the following rules might result in rejection of the manuscript.


Authors are responsible for proofreading their manuscripts before submitting, particularly with regard to general orthography, grammar, as well as author names/order and affiliations.


The entire manuscript (i.e. text, figures, tables, references and abstracts) cannot exceed eight (8) pages, or twelve (12) pages for plenary / keynote lectures. No manuscripts having excess pages will be published.


  • Font: “Arial”
  • Font size: 11 point
  • Font color: Black
  • Spacing / paragraphs: Single spacing between lines / Paragraphs are not to be indented.


All text of the manuscript must be located within a 17.0-cm by 25.2-cm rectangle of an A4 page, with margins as indicated in Table 1.

Table 1. Page margins for manuscripts presented at IIR conferences

Margin Position Top Bottom Left Right
Margin size (cm) 2.0 2.5 2.0 2.0


The title of the manuscript should be in font size 16, centered in lower case and boldface type; one blank line should be included above and below it.


The author’s first name should be indicated first in lowercase (except the first letter), followed by his/her last name in uppercase. The author’s second names could be added after the first name just in initials in uppercase follow by a dot. The lead author’s complete mailing address, the fax number and e-mail address should be given, including his/her company or organization. It is to this address that correspondence is to be sent. The address and affiliation of a second author may be mentioned, if judged necessary. Asterisks should be used to indicate which address corresponds to which author. The address(es) should be centered, and should be in lowercase. The different parts of the address(es) should be separated by commas and if more than one line is necessary, the various lines should be of roughly the same length.


Numbered (i.e. 1., 2., 3., etc.) with the exception of the abstracts
All titles of sections should be centered, in boldface capital letters and numbered (i.e. 1.1., 1.2., 1.3., etc.). A blank line should be placed above and below the titles.
Sub-section headings should be in title case, boldface letters and justified left. A blank line should be placed above, but not below, them.
Sub-sub-sections should be avoided. If they are used, the title should be justified left, title case, non-bold. A blank line should be placed above, but not below, them.


Authors are asked not to number the pages.


The SI system of units should be used.


Equations should be centered, numbered in order (i.e. (1), (2), (3), etc.) down the right-hand side of the page and cited in the text with its number, e.g. eq. (1). Equations should be separated from the text above and below by a blank line.


Each table should be numbered (Tables 1, 2, 3, etc.), with the caption being placed above the table. Each figure should be numbered (Figures 1, 2, 3, etc.), with the caption being placed below the figure.
Figures and tables should be incorporated in the text and should not run into the margins.
In the text, figures and tables should be named as follows: Figure 1, Figure 2, Figure 3, etc. and Table 1, Table 2, Table 3, etc.
Fonts used in figures should be large enough to be legible.


Except for rare cases where no symbols and abbreviations are used, a NOMENCLATURE should be placed before REFERENCES. It should contain all symbols and abbreviations used in the manuscript. Use the international system of units (SI). Avoid use of the solidus (/) but present quantities in the denominator always with negative exponents.


Within the text of a manuscript, bibliographical sources should be cited by giving the last name(s) of the author(s) and the year of publication. The year should always be in parentheses, whether or not the name of the author(s) is. Please ensure that the references are clearly separated.
The two possibilities are illustrated as follows:
Albert (1957) showed that the blend was azeotropic.
or: It was shown that the blend was azeotropic (Albert, 1957).

When there are two authors, the names of both should be cited, e.g.:
Albert and Klaus (1981) observed that the blend was azeotropic.
or: It was observed recently that the blend was azeotropic (Albert and Klaus, 1981).

When there are three or more authors, only the lead author of the source should be cited. The names of the other authors should be designated by et al. in italics, e.g.:
Lee et al. (1982) developed a new blend.
or: A new blend was developed (Lee et al., 1982).

When the same author and the same year of publication are cited from more than one source, the sources should be distinguished in the text by adding the lower-case letter “a” to the year of publication of the first source cited, “b” for the second source, and so on, as shown hereafter:
Klaus (1980a) discovered… and further on in the text:
Klaus also pointed out (1980b) that…

The sources cited in the text should be listed in order at the end of the manuscript.
Sources should be in alphabetical order of the author’s name or of the lead author if there are several authors. The sources should be presented as follows:

  1. Article from a periodical
    Name(s) of the author(s), first name initial(s)., year of publication. Title of article. Title of periodical and abbreviated according to international standards, Volume number, issue number (between brackets), first and last page.
    e.g. Herbe, L., Lundqvist, P., 1997. CFC and HCFC refrigerants retrofits. Int. J. Refrigeration 20(1), 49-54.
  2. Paper published in conference proceedings
    Name(s) of the author(s), first name initial(s)., year of publication. Title of article. Title of the conference, publisher of proceedings, first and last page.
    e.g. Pearson, S.F., 1996. Uses of Hydrocarbon Refrigerants. Proceedings of the IIR Conference on Applications for Natural Refrigerants, Aarhus, Denmark, IIF/IIR, 439-446.
  3. Book
    Name(s) of the author(s), first name initial(s)., year of publication. Title of the book. Name of publisher, place of publication, number of pages. Establishments can be considered authors when they assume main responsibility for the text and their publications reflect their collective reflections or activities.

  4. Book chapter
    Name(s) of the author(s), first name initial(s)., year of publication. Title of chapter. In: name(s) and initial(s) of the coordinator(s), title of the book, name of publisher, place of publication, first and last page.
