Formatting Checklist

Please pay attention to the following rules when formatting your camera-ready version of your paper.

  1. You must use the ACM SIG Proceedings Format. You can find the latest templates on the ACM's website.
  2. You must include as part of the bibstrip, a copyright statement at the bottom of the left column on the first page. The text must be the exact copyright statement that you received from, after submitting your copyright form to ACM, formatted in 8pt font. Please make sure that the DOI is included as the last line in the bibstrip.
  3. The page size must be US Letter.
  4. You must include categories and subject descriptors, keywords, and general terms in the first page of the paper (after abstract and before introduction). You may refer to the 2012 ACM Classification for the categories and subject descriptors. You may have a look at the indexing support tool.
  5. You must use Type-1 fonts for your submission. Do not use Type-3 fonts.
  6. If you use Adobe Distiller, you can use the ACM Digital Library optimal distiller settings file, ACM.joboptions.
  7. You must embed all fonts in the PDF. ACM has documentation on how to embed your fonts.
  8. You must avoid orphan lines: no single lines of body text at the bottom or top of a column, no headings without at least two lines of body text at the bottom of a column.
  9. You must ensure that figures are readable when printed on gray scale printers.
  10. You must avoid page numbering.
  11. You must create an optimized PDF file that is compatible with Acrobat 5.0 (PDF1.4).
  12. You must prevent down-sampling of images.
  13. Finally, please avoid hyperlinks in your paper. The post-processing that is required for ACM DL is known to produce bad visual quality with the tools that we have available.
