 FURTHER INFORMATION:
 
All ACM sponsored proceedings will be included in the ACM Digital Library as well as prepared for printed and/or e-proceedings publication. All papers for the conference must be submitted in an electronic format which conforms to ACM specifications. Your page limit is set by the category your submission has been selected for:
  • Technical Papers: 10 Page Limit
  • Posters: 2 Page Limit

A. Mandatory Sections:

The following list are MANDATORY SECTIONS and should be filled in properly and accurately by the authors on the FINAL VERSION papers.
  • Title of Your Submission Should be Initial Cap: Meaning First Letter of the Main Words Should be Made Capital Letters.
  • Authors Complete Names: For each and all authors their first name, middle initial (if any), and last name need to be included after the title of the paper on the first page, and on the electronic submission page (please recheck what you enter)
  • Affiliation: EACH author's affiliation, department (if any) affiliation location, State, Country, and email address should be included and MUST entered on the submission page.
  • Abstract: Please include an abstract (short overview) of your paper or poster on the first page top of the left hand column. The abstract on the first page of your paper or abstract needs to be entered into the abstract field on the submission page word for word.
  • ACM Classification Sections:

    (a) ACM Categories & Subject Descriptors: Your choices of the ACM classifiers need to be included on the first page of your paper after the abstract and Choosen Properly on the Submission Page.  The setup of This Section as well as the General Terms are available on both templates. The ACM Computing Classification Scheme is available at: http://www.acm.org/class/1998/.

    (b) General Terms: This section is limited to the following 16 terms and MUST be chosen properly on the submission page and appear on the first page of your paper: Algorithms, Design, Documentation, Economics, Experimentation, Human Factors,  Languages, Legal Aspects, Management, Measurement, Performance, Reliability, Security, Standardization, Theory, Verification.

    (c) Keywords: This section is your choice of terms you would like to be indexed by and are mandatory on the submission page, but are NOT mandatory to be included on the first page. If you do include Keywords on your first page, the section should appear after the General Terms and before the body of the paper or talk.

B. Files to Submit (PS (postscript) or PDF):

C. Page Size & Page Breaks:

Submissions that do not conform to the ACM SIG standards, templates, and formats will be returned to the author for corrections and/or alterations. The page size for this ACM publication is US Letter (8-1/2x11 inches). Be sure that there are no bad page or column breaks — Meaning no widows (last line of a paragraph at the top of a column). If this happens either tighten the previous column or force a line over. Section and Sub-section heads should remain with at least 2 lines of body text when near the end of a page or column.


D. Figures or Images:

  • Color figures: Authors please be aware your figures are printing in black and white (grayscale) in the body pages of print version proceedings. We suggest you print your paper to a black/white printer (or black-white version) to be sure that the tones, screening, images reproduce well in black and white (also for ACM DL users accessing your paper online). Your images will and may appear in color on your electronic submissions for inclusion on CD or DVD proceedings, and will appear in color in the ACM Portal (digital library).
  • Resolution: We recommend images to be at least 300 or 600 dpi for quality reproduction and saved as .tif images. 
  • TIF (EPS) vs JPG (JPEG) images: TIFs were (and should be created) created for pre-press applications where quality takes priority over file size. While TIFs can be compressed (LZW compression option when saving out of Photoshop, for example), no image data is lost, thus ensuring maximum quality. JPEG was designed as a compressed image format designed to keep the file size small which makes it idea for use in web graphics. To do this, the JPEG format actually deletes image data from the image. The higher the level of compression, the more data is removed. This is referred to as a lossy compression system. On a printout, the removed data tends to show up as blocky areas of a solid color. At higher resolutions (a minimum of 200 dpi ), there's usually enough data in the JPEG file for the compression artifacts to be very noticeable.
  • Rules/Lines: We recommend for quality reproduction of rules in your graphs, tables or charts, that the rules are at least a 0.5 pt. and black. Finer lines and points than this will not reproduce well, even if you can see them on your laser printed hardcopy when checked -- bear in mind that your laser printers have a far lower resolution than the imagesetters that will be used.
  • Fonts: If your figure uses custom or any non-standard font, the characters may appear differently when printed in the proceedings. Remember to check your figure creation that all fonts are embedded or included in the figure correctly.
  • Transparencies: If a figure or image is assembled from multiple images, the images must be embedded, layers flattened or grouped together properly in the file, not lined. Transparencies should also be flattened.



E.Page Numbers, Headers and Footers:

Your final submission SHOULD NOT contain any footer or copyright string information in the footer area, headers or page numbers (but the correct ACM copyright notice should appear on the first page in the lower-left, see templates below). The papers will be paginated in a determined order by the chairs and added to the bottom upon finalization.

2. Be sure to format your document for American Letter (8-1/2x11). Please check that your submission adheres to the set page limit for your type of submission (see above).

3. Insert the ACM copyright statement (icac-blurb.txt, right click and download to cut and paste into your paper). This statement should appear in 8 pt. Times New Roman, justified text, with ICAC-09 italicized.

Insert the following three lines in your .tex document after  \begin{document} to produce the correct copyright statement and info:

\conferenceinfo{ICAC-09,} {June 15-19, 2009, Barcelona, Spain.} 
\CopyrightYear{2009}
\crdata{978-1-59593-998-2/09/06}
