Policies & Responsibilities

  3. Send your completed accessible PDF paper back via email to W4A Program Chairs and in your email add a plain text version of your title, abstract, authors and their affiliations, and finally your W4A registration number;

  2. Make sure you adhere to the ACM templates. LaTeX users should adhere to the Alternate ACM style. Make sure your submission is formatted for Letter paper: documentclass[letterpaper]{sig-alternate} in your LaTeX file.
