The following list of questions about your documentation, whether a two-page abstract or a full-length technical paper, should be examined and, if you can’t answer “Yes” to all of them, you should work to revise your documentation prior to final submission.
These questions are directly related to the checks made on your documentation after submission; if your documentation fails any of these checks, it will be returned to you for revision.
- Did you use the ACM article template and the “sigconf” template style (or “acmtog” if you’re preparing an article for publication in an issue of TOG)?
- Are you using the correct typefaces? “Linux Biolinum” and “Linux Libertine” are two of them. “Times Roman” and “Helvetica” are not.
- Are all of the typefaces used in your document embedded?
- Did you include CCS concepts?
- Did you include a set of user-defined keywords?
- Is the “ACM Reference format” text present?
- Did you define each author separately?
- Did you include the rights information from the completed form?
- Did you use the “author year” citation and reference style, rather than numbered citations and references?
- Did you check the References section for non-printing characters?
- Did you use “…and others” in a reference? Please list ALL authors of all referenced works.
- Did you use appropriate sectioning commands – section, subsection, and subsubsection – rather than highlighting words at the start of a paragraph?
- Is the “Acknowledgements” section numbered? (It should not be.)
