Author's Kit

NB: These instructions apply to the main conference. For the related workshops, please refer to the respective workshop page and consider any guidelines there in priority to the ones reported here.

The correct procedure for camera-ready upload is:

  1. format your paper according to the guidelines below
  2. register for the conference here
  3. login to the Assyst system and upload the camera-ready and the copyright form

All papers must strictly comply with ACM Conference Proceedings format.

Types & Length

Page limits are those of the main conference. Shorter limits may apply for each workshop. Please refer to the relevant workshop page.

  • Regular and invited paper: up to 10 pages. Overlength pages (up to a maximum of two) are charged.
  • Abstracts for invited talks: up to two pages, still in the same format, including title, authors, text and references.

Graphics should be inserted, rather than cutting and pasting. Do not link to a graphic. The manuscript's graphics should have resolutions of 600dpi for monochrome, 300 dpi for grayscale, and 300 dpi for color. We suggest that you use a text box to insert a graphic (which is ideally a 300 dpi TIFF or EPS file, with all fonts embedded) because, in a Word document, this method is somewhat more stable than directly inserting a picture. To have non-visible rules on your frame, use the MS Word "Format" pull-down menu, select Text Box > Colors and Lines to choose No Fill and No Line.

To achieve the best viewing experience for the review process and conference proceedings, we strongly encourage authors to use Times-Roman fonts. If a font face is used that is not recognized by the submission system, your proposal will not be reproduced correctly.
If creating a PDF file, please make sure that you are using Type 1 fonts, which are embeddable. Please make sure that all fonts and subset fonts are embedded.

Each paper should contain an abstract of 100 to 150 words that appears at the beginning of the document.

List and number all references at the end of the document. The references can be numbered in alphabetical order or in order of appearance in the paper. When referring to them in the text, type the corresponding reference number in square brackets. The end of the document should include a list of references containing information.

Illustrations & Colors
Illustrations must appear within the designated margins. They may span the two columns. If possible, position illustrations at the top of columns, rather than in the middle or at the bottom. Caption and number every illustration. All halftone illustrations must be clear in black and white.

Page Numbers
Do not put page numbers on your document. We will add appropriate page numbers to accepted papers when the conference proceedings are assembled.


To avoid delays The email address to be used for registering and uploading the paper should be the same one the above message was directed to (i.e., the one of the corresponding author). If a different person wants to register, he/she should contact the publication chair, have its new name/email address be inserted into the Assyst system (so that he/she will receive another such message) and complete the registration and upload with the new credentials.
