Author Guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in English presenting original research. Submitted papers must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Submissions should be no more than 6 pages long in the standard ACM SIG proceedings format with two columns and a nine-point font on a ten-point baseline.

Each submission should begin with a succinct statement of the problem and a summary of the main results. If the authors believe more details are necessary to substantiate the main claims of the paper, they may include a clearly marked appendix to be read at the discretion of the committee. At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the symposium to present their work.

Papers must be submitted online at the following URL:



Accepted papers will appear in an informal proceedings, which will be distributed electronically from the symposium website. Appearance is not intended to preclude later publication at another conference.
