ACM is revising its Publication Workflow and Article Templates for the article submission and publication process. As part of this process, ACM is switching to a single-column manuscript and a camera-ready version format. The purpose of the updated process is to increase the accessibility of articles published in the ACM Digital Library. The following instructions will help you in formatting the camera-ready version of your IUI paper. Please, read all of them carefully before submitting it.
Your camera-ready submission must be formatted according to the new standard ACM SIG proceedings format. The new format is available here. Further, the authors are required to include a proper classification for the paper according to the ACM Classification System (CCS). Additional information on how to use it is available here.
You should submit a single ZIP file containing ALL your source files (e.g., *.tex, *.bib, *.sty, and all figures for Latex Users or the .docx file for Word users). In order to upload these files into TAPS, follow the instructions presented in the following tutorial.
The contact author will receive the 'Notification to upload your paper to the ACM TAPS' email from TAPS, in which the system will ask you to submit your source files and provide a unique link through which you can access TAPS (your specific author dashboard). In the top of your author dashboard TAPS provides the information about "Proceeding Acronym", "Paper ID" and "Title of Paper". You can upload a zip file in TAPS for further processing and the ZIP file naming should be like ProceedingAcronym–PaperId.zip. It is important to follow strictly all the instructions of file structure and naming of the zip file that should be uploaded on TAPS.
The publishing system produces automatically the traditional PDF output as well as ACM's new responsive HTML5 design. Within 24 hours after submitting the .zip file, the contact author will receive the 'PDF and HTML Proofs: available for review' email notifying that the proofs for the published versions of your paper (both PDF and HTML5 versions) are available for your review and approval. Note that TAPS will generate the output PDF using the double-column format, which follows the "sigconf" proceedings template. TAPS receives the information from ACM's system regarding which composition layout needs to be followed for the papers in your proceedings (i.e., "sigconf" in this case) and applies the required style internally.
If you are satisfied with the proofs for the published versions, please notify us of your approval within The ACM Publishing System (TAPS). If you find that the PDF and/or HTML file(s) did not convert correctly, follow the instructions presented in the author dashboard.
Should you have any questions or issues going through the instructions above, please contact support at firstname.lastname@example.org for both LaTeX and Microsoft Word inquiries.
While working on your final document, please keep the following in mind:
HTML proofs should support most accessibility features, but TAPS does not yet fully support automatic integration of accessibility features into your PDF proof.
When you receive your proofs for approval, you may update the PDF document with accessibility features and return it by attaching it in a reply to the original email.
For making your PDF accessible, please reference Making Your Submission Accessible.
If you have any questions or are in need of assistance regarding the accessibility guidelines, you may email the Accessibility Chairs at email@example.com
In order to include your paper in the proceedings of the 28th IUI conference and to schedule your presentation in the conference program, at least one of the authors MUST register for the conference. Further, at least one author MUST attend the conference to present the work. Make sure to use your institutional email address when registering (the same email address used in your paper). This will help us showcase speaker profiles alongside their paper in the conference platform.
