Author Guidelines

If you have questions regarding the preparation of your camera-ready paper, send an email to the proceedings chairs:

Stefano Petrangeli (petrange AT adobe.com)

Igor Curcio (igor.curcio AT nokia.com)

Common Rules

  • Include all the modifications asked by the reviewers and shepherd (if any) in the camera-ready paper.
  • Upload the camera-ready paper by the deadline listed here.
  • Accompany each camera-ready paper with an author registration as detailed here.
  • Look out for an email from ACM shortly after the acceptance to fill the rights management form. Check your spam folder and then contact the proceeding chairs if you have not received the email from ACM.
  • Use the official templates.
  • Do not substitute the fonts used in the template (both 9pt and 10pt font sizes are acceptable). Do not adjust the margins. Fonts must be embedded in the PDF (Non-type-1 fonts are acceptable as long as they are embedded). The templates use a new font set (libertine), which needs to be installed before using the templates.
  • Include keywords, CCS Concepts and ACM Reference format on the first page.
  • Do not number the pages.
  • Look out for another email from ACM after completing the rights form (at the link sent by ACM). The contact author will be emailed the rights text and bibliographic strip with instructions to place within the paper (on the left bottom of the first page). The same information should also be populated in the HotCRP system automatically.
  • Use the correct page headers (see below) and make sure they do not overlap.
  • Finalize the camera-ready upload in the HotCRP system by uploading the:
    • final pdf
    • source files (all files including images used to create the final pdf - LaTeX or Word)
    • ACM keywords and CCS concepts
    • references

Presenter Guidelines

Read First

  • Please note that submitting the presentation slides and videos by the deadline, and attending the live Q&A session is mandatory as it is considered as a replacement for the physical attendance requirement at the conference.
  • The submission deadline for all the materials is May 25th.
  • The presentation slides and videos will be accessible by only the conference attendees during the conference. Unless the speaker explicitly opts out during the submission, the slides and videos will be publicly available after the conference.
  • These guidelines apply to the research track, demo and industry track, open dataset and software track, challenges, NOSSDAV, PV and MMVE presentations.

What to Submit

  1. A maximum three-minute head-shot video explaining the key contributions and findings of the work (video without slides).
  2. A maximum 15-minute video providing an in-depth description of the work (slides with narration and optionally head-shot video).
  3. The bare slides without narration (pdf).

Submission Format

  • The three-minute video must be in mp4 format.
  • The 15-minute video must be in mp4 format. If using PowerPoint (example template), also submit the pptx (with narration) in addition to the mp4 file.
  • Video resolutions must be 720p or higher. Aspect ratio should be 16:9.
  • Subtitles are good to have, but optional (if they are available, they must be accurate and included as a separate track in the mp4 file, not burned-in).

Discussion Forums and Live Q&A Sessions

Participants will be able to post questions/comments for any paper in that session during the entire conference week and authors are required to answer them. Each session will also have a live Q&A session, where at least one author for each paper will be available. Details/links for discussion forums and live Q&A sessions are to be provided to the conference attendees.
