Up to three figures (and up to two figure files per figure)
may be submitted with your proposal. The figure
files must be well-formed Encapsulated PostScript files. If you
are using the Web form for submission the
figure files must be "attached" files, a feature of
Netscape 2.0 or later compatible browsers. (It may not be practical to
"attach" figure files
that are larger than 1 Mb.) If you do not have
the "attach" option with your browser and your
proposal will contain figures, then please do not submit your proposal via
the Web form. We do not have any way to handle a "mixed"
(both email and Web) submission. However, you can prepare your proposal
using the Web-based form, have the LaTeX version emailed back to you when
it is done, edit the LaTeX form entering the appropriate figure information,
and then submit through the email submission process. Email submission
for both template file and figures are in the LaTeX template.
Some hints for figure submission using the Web form are noted below.
Do not embed the figures
as part of any of the text fields in your proposal. We will include any
figures and captions at the end of the "Scientific Justification" section of
your LaTeX proposal, calling them Figure 1, Figure 2 or Figure 3, as
appropriate. We will compute a new "BoundingBox" for each figure. If you
choose to have your figure rotated, we will do that and then recompute a
We will automatically scale your figure files but you may adjust this scaling
factor (single figures only) to improve the appearance and layout of
the printed copy which you can view/print as a PostScript or PDF file.
Each figure may include up to two PostScript files which we will place
side-by-side in the figure with a single caption. You will be able to
rotate these figure files but the "scale" option will be ignored.
It may not be practical to "attach" figure files that are larger than 1 Mb.
If all figures combined exceed 10Mb check to be certain your proposal was
indeed submitted (you should get an email message verifying your submission
along with a proposal number
within 10-15 minutes after submission). If you suspect problems contact
us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
