Technical papers

Technical papers and communications should be in full paper format: 8-10 pages for technical papers, 4 pages for communication papers. This includes all figures, tables, and references; over-length or incorrectly formatted submissions may be rejected without reviews. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings which are accessible to the general public via the ACM Digital Library website. The official language of the Conference is English and accepted papers require at least one author to attend to present the work. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the members of the programme committee. Submissions MUST contain substantial original, unpublished material. Please refer to the ACM policy on plagiarism for guidance.

Papers will not be blinded – In this way we encourage a degree of self-policing: submissions are not blinded, therefore submitting immature work, to be read by a programme committee populated by the field’s top researchers, will tarnish your reputation.

Technical papers (including communications) qualify for the TPG Challenge Delegates Award

If your paper is about a working system or application you have the opportunity to demo it at the TPG Challenge. You will automatically qualify for the delegates award of the TPG Challenge. To do so, email the PC chairs and the TPG challenge chairs and let them know your willingness to enter in the TPG Challenge.

If your paper is accepted you don’t need to submit an extra paper to show a demo; if it gets rejected you will have to shape your original paper in a 2-pages challenge paper. If you prefer, you are free to submit papers to both venues, as usual.
