Preparing a Paper for INET 2000. Sample & Instructions
This brief paper presents the details necessary to prepare a paper for INET 2000. The paper includes guidelines on style, acceptable formats and constructs. It also provides suggestions on how to prepare the paper. As in previous years, the Proceedings of INET 2000 will be published on CD-ROM and on the Internet. A listing of abstracts submitted to date is available at http://mc-net.jtbcom.co.jp/inet2000/submit/listtop.html.
The Program Committee would kindly like to remind everyone that the INET audience is a professional audience, and not one of beginners. It is better to err on the side of "too technical" than "too general." That way, your comments will challenge the audience and be less likely to present them with a level of information with which many are already familiar. We thank you in advance for taking this important point to heart.

There are a number of ways of producing HTML documents.
Alternatives to HTML
If it is really not possible to produce HTML we will accept the following alternative:
Using This Paper as a Template
To use this paper as a template, find the Save or Save As command and select Source as the option. That will save this document as HTML. It can then be read by your word processor editor.
Post Acceptance EditingThe Internet Society will pass all accepted papers and panel papers to professional editors for production of the proceedings. Thus, your paper may change slightly from submission to the final proceedings.
Writing the Paper - Acceptable Styles
This section is intended as a guideline to the use of the various HTML markup commands. It is intended to give papers a consistent style.
Feel free to use both <B>bold</B> and <I>italics</I> for emphasis as needed. Similarly <EM>emphasis</EM>, <STRONG>strong emphasis</STRONG> and other text markup styles.
Sections, sub-sections and sub-sub-sections should use the <H2>,<H3> and <H4> levels of HTML headings, respectively.
Use the <BLOCKQUOTE>
to set off a passage of text like this.
Table of Contents
Every paper should contain a Table of Contents. The entries in the Table of Contents should be links to the top level sections, but not sub- or sub-sub-sections.
You may use any of the lists common to HTML. Examples of each of the numbered list (<OL>), unnumbered list (<UL>), and descriptive list (<DL>) are found in this paper.
This section talks about various constructs you may wish to use in your paper.
The use of URLs presents possible problems with copyright restrictions. We have adopted the following policy with respect to the inclusion of URLs in INET 2000 papers. URLs may be used in four ways in your paper.
This implies that you must use a level of indirection to point to another's work from within your paper. At the point where the work is mentioned, you include a URL to an entry in the References section. The entry may then contain a URL to the work. See the examples included in this paper.
The Use of Tables
We would prefer that you did not use tables to achieve complex page layouts, however there are clearly times when tables are the appropriate way to present data. Here are a few things you always wanted to know about San Jose, California as an example of an acceptable use of tables in an INET 2000 paper.
ll references to images should be to files in the same directory as your paper, e.g. the image in the table above was specified using .
All images should be in GIF89a (without animation), or JPEG (JFIF).
Remember that you are submitting a paper, not a web page. No animated gifs, blinking words, movies etc. As stated above, you can include a URL reference to your own site which demonstrates these features if necessary.
Things Not To Use
Your finished paper should not require support for any of the following:
Blinking.If in doubt, keep it simple.
File Naming Conventions
Your paper should consist of a single HTML file, but may be supplemented by images in GIF or JPEG files. Thus your submission may well be several files. We ask that you use the following naming convention to facilitate web access and to allow for anyone who may still be using Windows 3.1:
How To Submit
All authors will be asked to make paper submissions through a web enabled form. This form will be available to accept submissions from mid-January to January 25 only - no extensions will be made. A separate email will be forthcoming in early January relating the URL of the submission form, the exact opening date for submissions and specifics on how to use the form.
