SEATTLE, WA, USA - JUNE 15-19, 2009

Paper Submission Instructions

Papers should not exceed 12 pages double column including figures and tables in standard ACM format. In addition, a 2-page appendix is permitted, where the appendix does not count towards the original 12 pages. Papers must be submitted electronically in printable pdf form; Templates for the standard ACM format can be found at this link. No changes to margins, spacing, or font sizes are allowed from those specified by the style file. Papers violating the formatting guidelines will be returned without review.

All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process. The identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each other. To ensure blind reviewing, authors names and affiliations should not appear in the paper; bibliographic references should be made in such a way as to preserve author anonymity.

Warning: It is ACM policy not to allow double submissions, where the same paper is submitted to more than one conference/journal concurrently.  Any double submissions detected will be immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.

We will be using the EDAS system for submissions -- you will be required to sign up for a new EDAS account, if you already do not have one.

Once you have registered the paper, you will receive an email with an acknowledgment. You can login to the EDAS system at any later time to upload the manuscript of the paper. The deadline for the final version of submissions is November 17, 2008, 23:59 EST.
