Introduction
 
The introduction is the text that helps the reader to understand the main subject of the article. It is recommended that the authors include quotes from other works that support the proposal that is presented in the article. Quotes from other references should be referenced with square brackets [1]. The references should be numbered according to the order of appearance throughout the document. The body of the manuscript should be written in a double column, divided into sections. Each section should include a header numbered with Arabic numbers, according to the examples. Simple line spacing should be used throughout the article.
 
When a new paragraph is required, a 1cm indentation should be used only in the first line. A blank line will be left to separate paragraphs.
 
Usually, the introduction ends with some information related to the article or some reflections about the outcome of the work that has been presented. At the end of a section, two blank lines should be left before placing the title of the next section [2].
 
Methodology
 
The author is free to name the sections so that they fit with the information shown, but it is suggested to contemplate the sections included in this template. All section headers should use a 12-point font size.
 
Subsection title
 
If the structure of the article requires subsections, these should be listed according to their order of appearance. Whenever subsections are used, the separation between the title of the subsection and the upper and lower paragraphs shall be one line. The subsections shall be numbered using Arabic numerals. The font size used for subsection titles is the same as for the body of the manuscript (10 points).
 
When an equation is shown in the article, this equation must be numbered. Numbering must be done according to the order of appearance of the equation in the article. The numbering will be done with Arabic numerals enclosed in parentheses. The following is an example of an equation:
 
                                                                           A + B = C                             (1)
                                                                                                                                                                                          Equations must be centered in the text column. The variables of each equation must be defined when used for the first time.

Figures 

The figures must be separated from the paragraph by two lines on the upper side, and two lines on the lower side. The figures should be centered in addition to being numbered according to their order of appearance. The font size for the title of the figures is 9 points. 

Each figure must be placed in proximity to the paragraph in which the description is made. For example, in Figure 1. it can be observed the TGA and DSC curves of a gelatin sample.
 
The figures will be incorporated in the text and sent in a separate .jpg file, with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.
 
Results and Discussions
 
When the article requires highlighting some information, authors are requested to write that part of the text in bold font. In the case of this document, it is important that the author considers that the maximum number of pages is six. Items that do not meet the formatting guidelines described in this template will not be accepted [3].
 
Tables
 
Tables must use Times New Roman font size 9 normal. The first line of the table must be in bold, indicating the title of each column. The title of the table should be placed on top of two simple lines of the previous paragraph, and the next paragraph should be separated by two lines.

Conclusions
 
This section describes the progress of the presented work. Usually, reflections can be shown towards future work or contributions made. In addition, the status of the presented work can be mentioned, as well as the short-term objectives.
 
The last section, the references, shall not be numbered. This section shows the bibliographic information of the main references used by the author. The references should be listed according to the order of appearance in the article. Notice the difference between the references of an article in a magazine, a book, or an article in the memories of a congress. The separation between one reference and another is one line. Use 1 cm indentation on the lines following the first line. The font size in the references section is 10 points. The title of the work should be written only with italic.

General recommendations from references:

  1. The format of the references will be in the IEEE style and it is recommended to use the Endnote or Mendeley reference manager. References must be cited in the text in order of appearance with ascending numbers enclosed in a square bracket [1], [2], [3] .... Use the symbol "in dash (-)" to delimit intervals. For Example: 150–200 ° C, 450–4000 cm − 1, 12−17, etc. Also, it is recommended to use the minus sign "minus sign (-)" instead of the hyphen as the superscript.
  2. It is essential that in the references publications of the last 5 years predominate (at least 60%).
  3.  In the document. - Making two or more references in the same sentence does not allow identifying the contributions of the different works. Therefore, it is necessary to carefully define the contributions of each of the cited works.
  4.  Carefully check that all references are in IEEE format, ensuring that all reference data (authors, title, journal, year, volume and pages) are incorporated.
  5.  Once a number has been assigned to a given reference, the same number must be used every time that document is cited in the text.
  6.  Each reference number must be enclosed in square brackets [], for example, "... end of investigation [12] ..."
  7.  It is not necessary to mention the author in the reference unless it is relevant in the text itself.
  8.  The body of the document will not mention the date of publication.
  9.  It is not necessary to include the word "reference", for example, "... in reference [27] ...": simply indicate "... in [27] ..."

To cite more than one source at the same time, it is preferable to enter each one with its own brackets, for example, "as indicated by several studies [1], [3], [5] ..." instead of "as indicated various studies [1, 3, 5] ... "
