Paper Preparation

Papers must be prepared by using the Official 2017 ACM Master Article Template, which consolidates 8 individual ACM journal and ACM Proceedings. Template files for LaTeX (Version 1.48), Word (Windows version), Word (Mac 2011 - Toolbar support), and Word (Mac 2016 - Ribbon support) are provided at this website. Please make sure that your paper strictly adheres to the 2017 ACM Master Article Template formatting style by using one of the provided template files.

Paper must be written in English and should not exceed the page limit, i.e., 12 pages for full paper and 4 pages for short paper.


Paper Submission

Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere. Each submission must be accompanied by the following information:

  • a short abstract,
  • a complete list of authors and their affiliations,
  • a contact person for correspondence, and
  • postal and email addresses.

Papers must be submitted using the EasyChair submission system:

Paper Reviewing

All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process, i.e., the identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each other. To ensure blind reviewing, authors' names and affiliations should not appear in the paper, and bibliographic references should be suitably modified.


Paper Publication

All accepted regular and short papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library and DBLP. Extended versions of the best papers in the conference will be considered for publication in a TOMACS special issue.
