Accepted manuscripts for all submission categories will be published in the ACM digital library. All submissions must follow the ACM SIG Proceedings template on this page: http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html
Among the various ACM paper templates, make sure that you use the “SigConf” version, i.e., use “sample-sigconf.tex” if you use LaTeX, and “ACM_SigConf.docx” if you use MS Word for preparing your manuscript. In addition, make sure that you use the 2012 ACM Computing Classification System (CCS) at https://dl.acm.org/ccs/ccs.cfm to choose CCS Concepts for your paper. For detailed instructions, refer to the CCS 2012 page: https://dl.acm.org/ccs/ccs.cfm?id=0&lid=0&nav=w
Demo submissions will need to provide installation information at the conference venue, such as spatial dimensions and floor plans, lighting conditions (e.g., dim lighting, IR interference, etc.), sound conditions, number of participants that can be accommodated at the same time, time to install and uninstall, etc.
The poster session is a good venue to get feedback on early-stage works that are not yet published. The submission must be in the form of a two-page abstract. Supplementary materials, such as video clips are encouraged but not mandatory. The authors must bring an A0-sized poster to be displayed during the poster sessions of the conference.
We encourage authors to submit supporting video material in addition to the PDF submission. Authors of all accepted papers will also be invited and encouraged to submit to the demo sessions.
