Detailed Instructions and Checklist

Online Submission Form

General Information
1. Submissions will be administratively rejected without review if it is found that:

a. The submission violates the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism.

b. The submission is a dual submission; that is, if the submission is simultaneously under review for any other conference or publication. For more details see the Policy on Previous Publication and the Double Submissions section of the Frequently Asked Questions.

c. Electronic files have been submitted that have been designed to have side effects other than presenting the submitted work to reviewers and committee members (for example, a "phone home" script).

2. All fields on the submission form except for the final file upload must be completed by 23 January 2008. Completing the submission form will assign your submission a paper_ID. A paper_ID is required for each submission. NO PAPER_IDs WILL BE ISSUED after 23 January 2008, 22:00 UTC/GMT. See Important Dates.

3. See Publication Requirements and the Other Questions About Submissions section of Frequently Asked Questions for information on preparing documents and supplemental materials (including information on anonymity, length, etc.). See the Deadlines section of Frequently Asked Questions for more details about submission deadlines.

Information for Submission of Papers and Electronic Supplemental Materials
1. As stated above, all fields on the online submission form must be completed by 23 January 2008, 22:00 UTC/GMT. See Important Dates.

2. You must upload a PDF file of your paper and all supplemental files by 23 January 2008, 22:00 UTC/GMT. See Important Dates. If you find that uploading is slow and you are concerned about meeting the deadline, you may first upload an MD5 checksums for your files (by 23 January, 22:00 UTC/GMT) and then upload the files that match this checksum by 24 January 2008, 22:00 UTC/GMT. Uploads that are in progress at the moment of the 23 January or 24 January deadlines are considered to have not been uploaded on time. Papers or materials emailed to the Papers Chair or Papers Advisory committee are not considered to have been submitted; you must use the online submission system.

English Review Service
Non-native English speakers may use the English Review Service to help with the text of submissions. Please note that this takes time, so your submission should be sent to the English Review Service well before the final Papers deadline.

What is the deal with MD5 checksums?
If you upload all of your files by 23 January 2008, 22:00 UTC/GMT, you can ignore the MD5 checksum. The system will, however, compute and report the MD5 checksum for any file you upload, once the uploaded file has been completely received by the submissions server. You may find this useful if you want to check that your file has been uploaded without corruption. Just compare the MD5 checksum you compute for your file with the checksum computed by the submission system.

If you are uploading in the last couple of days of submissions, server response may be slow. To be sure of making the deadline, you may initially upload just the MD5 checksum for your files. If the MD5 checksum is received by 23 January 2008, 22:00 UTC/GMT, you will have 24 hours to complete the upload of files that have a matching MD5 checksum, i.e. you will have until24 January 2008, 22:00 UTC/GMT, to upload files for which MD5 checksums have been entered.

Information for Physical Submission of Supplemental Materials
1. As stated above, all fields on the online submission form must be completed by 23 January 2008, 22:00 UTC/GMT. See Important Dates.

2. Six copies of your physical supplemental materials, must ARRIVE by (not be postmarked or sent by) 23 January 2008, 22:00 UTC/GMT at this address:
