General Rules

  • Include all the modifications asked by the reviewers and shepherd (if any) in the camera-ready paper.
  • Upload the camera-ready paper by the deadline listed here.
  • Accompany each camera-ready paper with an author registration as detailed here.

Camera-Ready Paper Preparation

  • Use the official templates.
  • Include keywords, CCS concepts and ACM reference format on the first page.
  • Do not number the pages and make sure the headings are correct and do not overlap (see below).
  • Do not adjust the margins. Figures or tables cannot exceed the margins.
  • Fonts: Do not substitute the fonts used in the templates. Both 9pt and 10pt font sizes are acceptable. Fonts must be embedded in the PDF. The templates use a font set (libertine), which needs to be installed before using the templates. Use Type 1 and TrueType fonts (scalable) only, not Type 3 (bitmapped). Sometimes font problems come from figures, so make sure to check them (one can check the fonts using Adobe Acrobat: Open PDF->File->Properties->Fonts).
  • ACM rights text and bibliographic strip: Look out for an email from ACM shortly after the acceptance to fill the rights management form. Check your spam folder first and only then contact the proceedings chairs if you have not received the email from ACM. Before filling the rights management form, please check paper’s title and author name(s) in HotCRP. Update the information (if necessary) first in HotCRP, and only afterwards on the e-right form. The title on the form must match with the one in HotCRP.
  • Look out for another email from ACM after filling the form. The contact author will be emailed the rights text and bibliographic strip with instructions to place within the paper - on the left bottom of the first page. The same information should also be autopopulated in the HotCRP system.

HotCRP Submission

  • Finalize the camera-ready upload in the HotCRP system by uploading the:
