All submissions that will appear in the proceedings must be formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings Template. Note: This template is different from the ACM SIGCHI template.

An important aspect of preparing your paper is to provide the proper indexing and retrieval information from the ACM Computing Classification System. Please choose your category and descriptor terms carefully. These will be used to classify your submission in the ACM Digital Library. For help on choosing appropriate terms, visit

Note that Papers, Notes, and Interactive Posters use a blind review process: the submitted copy should have all authors' names and affiliations blanked out, and should avoid any obvious identifying features. While authors should leave citations to their own relevant work unanonymized, they should reference it in a way that doesn't readily identify them as the authors. For example use "Prior work by [ref]" instead of "In our prior work." Demos, Panels, Tutorials,Videos, Workshops, and the Doctoral Colloquium are not blind reviewed.

Submissions received after 5pm Pacific Time on the due date will not be considered. (See for conversion to your local time zone.)
