Submission

The submission system will be open later in 2019. When preparing your submission, please adhere strictly to the indications below. These requirements serve to ensure the appropriateness of the reviewing process and inclusion in the ACM Digital Library proceedings.


Format and length of the Paper

All papers must be formatted according to the ACM proceedings style. Click on the link to access Latex and Word templates for this format. Please ensure the appropriate length of your submission, namely:

  • Long papers and Brave New Ideas papers: 8 pages + references. These type of papers will have oral and poster presentations at the conference.
  • Short papers, Demonstration papers and Doctoral Symposium papers: 4 pages + references. These type of papers will have poster presentations at the conference.
  • Special session papers: 6 page limit + references. These type of papers will have oral and poster presentations at the conference.

For any over-length submission, we reserve the right to reject it outright on administrative basis.


Complying with double-blind review ( Long/short papers)

In a “Double-blind Review” process, authors should not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers should not know the names of the authors. Please prepare your paper in a way that preserves anonymity of the authors, namely:

  • Do not put your names under the title.
  • Avoid using phrases such as “our previous work” when referring to earlier publications by the authors.
  • Remove information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs).
  • Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.

If authors fail to comply with the Double-blind restrictions, we reserve the right to reject outright the paper on administrative basis. Note that the other types of the papers (technical demonstrations, doctoral symposium and special session papers) than regular papers are reviewed in “Single-blind Review” where the authors are requested to put their name under the title in the paper.


List of Authors

Please ensure that you submit your paper with the full list of authors. It is not possible to add or remove authors from your paper during the review process or after acceptance.


English presentation

The language of the conference is English. Any paper whose language usage is not up to the academic standards, i.e., is not appropriate for the final ACM Digital Library proceedings, will be rejected outright. Please be kind to proofread your paper carefully before submission.
