A French version of your summary is also required. For title formatting, three empty lines (11pt) should be inserted between the title and the author’s name, then again between the affiliation and the summary title, and again between the last line of the English summary and the résumé title. Six empty lines (also 11pt) should then be added between the end of the French summary and the first section heading.
