Technical Paper Style Guide

Annual Meeting Paper Guidelines
The purpose of this document is to provide guidelines for the submission of technical papers for publication in the AACE International Annual Meeting Transactions and presentation at the AACE International Annual Meeting. This document establishes the legal issues, style issues, and overall evaluation criteria that must be met for publication acceptance.
Technical Paper Evaluation Criteria (TPEC)
AACE International has developed a Technical Paper Evaluation Criteria (TPEC) spreadsheet tool to drive consistency in the review process, and to report results to the paper authors. A passing score in all of the review areas is required for the paper to be accepted for publication in the AACE International Annual Meeting Transactions.
Annual Meeting Paper Template [REQUIRED]
Papers submitted for the AACE International Annual Meeting must adhere to the AACE International Technical Paper Style Guide. The document must be submitted in Microsoft Word utilizing the AACE International Annual Meeting Paper Template.
Technical Presentation Template [REQUIRED]
This is the official slide template that must be used for the presentation that will accompany your paper. Please remember that NO images/charts/graphics etc. may be used in your presentation unless you have a copyright release from the owner that covers use for commercial purposes. No exceptions.
Slide Presentation Evaluation Criteria (SPEC)
Similar to the TPEC, AACE International has developed a Slide Presentation Evaluation Criteria (SPEC) spreadsheet tool to drive consistency in the presentation slide review process, and to report results to the presenters. A passing score in all of the review areas is required for the slides to be accepted for use in a presentation at an AACE International Annual Meeting.
