Formatting Guidelines

Download template (includes both Word and LaTeX templates) that is based on the ACM Proceedings format. It is not permissible to change the template's font size, margins, intercolumn spacing, or line spacing. Notice that the copyright area in the bottom left of the first page is intentionally left blank.

The papers must be submitted as PDF documents, and must follow the style of the document templates. In particular, ensure that your paper:
  • contains the same author information as in the CMT. e.g., the order of the authors and the accented characters must be the same in the paper and CMT. Middle names of the authors, if any, must be the same as it is in CMT.
  • contains the same Abstract as the one submitted to CMT.
  • contains no citations in the Abstract.
  • contains no equations or symbols in the Abstract.
  • is not longer than 12 pages (or shorter if you are submitting a short paper or a demonstration paper, please see the call for papers for details).
  • does strictly follow the style template wrt. line spacing, font size or style of captions;
  • shows no page numbers, headers or footers;
  • is formatted using US letter paper format;
  • has no line overflows, no widows or orphans, etc.;
  • has balanced columns on the last page (LaTeX tip: \usepackage{balance});
  • all figures and tables are readable (without having to turn the PDF reader's magnification to 400%);
  • avoids abbreviations where not needed, e.g., when referencing the name of a journal or when referring to a Section, a Figure etc.; has no numbering issues, e.g., all floats (Figures, Tables etc) are numbered consecutively and also the references in the text use the correct numbers;
  • uses the abbrv bibliography style (LaTeX) including all references being alphabetically sorted. References should include author, title, proceedings, pages, and year; with proceedings or journal name in italics.
  • embeds all fonts, including Type 1 postscript fonts, within your PDF. You can check this with the 'Properties' menu of Acrobat Reader (should show 'embedded' for each font). ACM maintains a FAQ about embedding fonts in TeX.

You can use PDF Checker to check whether your paper conforms to some of the margin, page number, and font-embedding requirements listed above.

Before submitting the camera-ready-copy of your paper, please double-check with your co-authors to see if they would like to acknowledge any funding sources in the paper.
