Camera-ready papers for the AIMS’20 proceedings are due 20-Dec-2019!

  • Work with the shepherd to address all the reviewers’ comments. Even though your submission is accepted, it is highly advised that you work with your shepherd to improve the overall paper quality.

    • An excellent reference that provides detailed instructions on preparing a camera-ready paper for the ACM “acmart” class has been compiled by Rasit Eskicioglu, and is titled as the “Quick and Dirty Instructions for the New ACM Typesetting Format—acmart Class”. It is recommended to gather pointers from here.
  • Fill out the copyright form. A separate email will be sent to the authors to guide you through the process.
  • Use the most recent ACM template, include bibliographic and copyright strip.
  • Upload the camera-ready version to EasyChair, and email the complete docket of source files and PDFs of the paper draft to: sigmobile[DOT]india[AT]gmail.com with the subject line: “AIMS’20 Camera-ready Docket

Rights Management Form

  • Before submitting the camera-ready paper, you need to complete the rights management form. A notification email will be sent once these forms are available and ready to sign.
  • As rights management emails are sent from an automated system, there is a chance that emails sent will wind up in SPAM folders. Please make sure that you and your authors set email SPAM settings to allow emails from “rightsreview@acm.org”.

Camera-ready Paper Format

  • Camera-ready papers (including title, author list, abstract, all figures, tables, and references):
    • Must not be greater than 6 pages in length for Full papers (a minimum number of 3 pages are required).
    • Must not be greater than 3 pages in length for Notes papers.
  • Camera-ready papers should adhere to the ACM templates that can be found at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template.
    • Templates are provided for formatting papers in MS Word and LaTeX.
    • In LaTeX, you should use \documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}.
    • If your face any problems with the templates, please contact ACM’s TeX support team at Aptara (acmtexsupport@aptaracorp.com).
  • DO NOT number the pages of your camera-ready paper.
    • By default, page numbers are disabled in the ACM template.
  • Provide proper indexing information in the camera-ready papers version according to the ACM Computing Classification System (CCS). More information about the ACM CCS is available at: https://dl.acm.org/ccs/ccs.cfm
  • After completing their rights management form, you will be emailed the correct rights management text and bibliographic strip to place within your paper. It is essential that you add the text to your paper. Make use of the following TeX macros:
    • \acmYear{2020}
    • \copyrightyear{2020}
    • \setcopyright{acmcopyright}
    • \acmConference{AIMS’20{Jan 11, 2018}{Bangalore, India}

    • \acmISBN{978-1-4503-7666-2}
    • The above text is an example. Please update the DOI and type of copyright based on the information in the email you will receive after finishing the rights management form.
  • It is a requirement to include running headers. Please shorten the headers if title or list of authors is too long, such as:
    • \title[Short title]{Long title}
    • \renewcommand{\shortauthors}{First author et al.}
  • Avoid using any special characters or non-standard fonts.
    • It is important that we must be able to display and print your submission exactly as we receive it using only standard tools and printers; so we strongly suggest that you use only standard fonts embedded in the PDF file.
