Submission Details for the Research Track

Submissions should contain original research and sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. This year, we invite research papers submissions under two categories: Regular papers and Short papers.

  • Regular papers should not exceed 11 pages, 10 pages for the main text (including figures, appendix etc.) and 1 page for references in standard ACM format.
  • Short papers should not exceed 5 pages, including references in standard ACM format.

Regular paper submissions are expected to contain in-depth descriptions of the new ideas along with detailed evaluation. Short papers may contain, for example, new interesting ideas which may not be evaluated extensively, tool descriptions or case studies. Please note that the papers will be accepted or rejected in the category in which they were submitted; there will be no "demotions" from a Regular to a Short paper.
