In this paper, we describe the formatting guidelines for ACM SIG Proceedings.
Keywords are your own designated keywords.
The proceedings are the records of the conference. ACM hopes to give these conference by-products a single, high-quality appearance. To do this, we ask that authors follow some simple guidelines. In essence, we ask you to make your paperlook exactly like this document. The easiest way to do this is simply to down-load a template from , and replace the content with your own material.
2. PAGE SIZE
All material on each page should fit within a rectangle of 18 x 23.5 cm (7" x 9.25"), centered on the page, beginning 2.54 cm (1") from the top of the page and ending with 2.54 cm (1") from the bottom. The right and left marginsshould be 1.9 cm (.75”).
The text should be in two 8.45 cm (3.33") columns with a .83 cm (.33") gutter.
3. TYPESET TEXT
3.1 Normal or Body Text
Please use a 9-point Times Roman font, or other Roman font with serifs, as close as possible in appearance to Times Roman in which these guidelines have been set. The goal is to have a 9-point text, as you see here. Please use sans-serif ornon-proportional fonts only for special purposes, such as distinguishing source code text. If Times Roman is not available, try the font named Computer Modern Roman. On a Macintosh, use the font named Times. Right margins should be justified, not ragged.
3.2 Title and Authors
The title (Helvetica 18-point bold), authors' names (Helvetica 12-point) and affiliations (Helvetica 10-point) run across the fullwidth of the page – one column wide. We also recommend phone number (Helvetica 10-point) and e-mail address (Helvetica 12-point). See the top of this page for three addresses. If only one address is needed, center all address text. For two addresses, use two centered tabs, and so on. For more than three authors, you may have to improvise.
3.3 First Page Copyright Notice
Please leave 3.81 cm(1.5") of blank text box at the bottom of the left column of the first page for the copyright notice.
3.4 Subsequent Pages
For pages other than the first page, start at the top of the page, and continue in double-column format. The two columns on the last page should be as close to equal length as possible.
Table 1. Table captions should be placed above the table
Graphics Top In-between BottomTables End Last First
Figures Good Similar Very well
3.5 References and Citations
Footnotes should be Times New Roman 9-point, and justified to the full width of the column.
Use the standard Communications of the ACM format for references – that is, a numbered list at the end of the article, ordered alphabetically by first author, and referenced by numbers in brackets . See the examplesof citations at the end of this document. Within this template file, use the style named references for the text of your citation.
The references are also in 9 pt., but that section (see Section 7) is ragged right. References should be published materials accessible to the public. Internal technical reports may be cited only if they are easily accessible (i.e. you can give the address to obtainthe report within your citation) and may be obtained by any reader. Proprietary information may not be cited. Private communications should be acknowledged, not referenced (e.g., “[Robertson, personal communication]”).
3.6 Page Numbering, Headers and Footers
Do not include headers, footers or page numbers in your submission. These will be added when the publications are assembled.
Place Tables/Figures/Images in text as close to the reference as possible (see Figure 1). It may extend across both columns to a maximum width of 17.78 cm (7”).
Captions should be Times New Roman 9-point bold. They should be numbered (e.g., “Table 1” or “Figure 2”), please note that the word for Table and Figure are spelled out. Figure’s captions should be centered beneath the image...
