Paper Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must be unpublished and must not be currently under review for any other publication. Submissions must be either full or work-in-progress (WiP) papers, with at most 6 and 3 single-spaced 8.5” x 11” pages (excluding references), respectively, and with 9-pt font size in two-column format, including figures and tables. All submissions must use the LaTeX (preferred) or Word styles found here. LaTeX submissions should use the acmart.cls template (sigconf option), with the default 9-pt font. This format will be used also for the camera-ready version of the accepted papers. Papers that do not meet the size and formatting requirements will not be reviewed. We require each paper to be in the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and submitted through the workshop submission system.

At least one of the authors of every accepted (full or WiP) paper must register and present the paper at the workshop. The program committee will elect papers for the Best Paper and Best Work-in-Progress Paper Awards.
