IMPORTANT: These instructions are specific for the DISIO Workshop 2012. If you are author of a paper accepted at DISIO Workshop 2012 you should follow these instructions.
All papers accepted at DISIO Workshop 2012 will be published on the Conference Proceedings, provided that the Camera Ready procedure (including registration) is completed and that the paper is presented at the DISIO Workshop 2012. The camera-ready deadline is February 19, 2012.
Authors are strongly encouraged to use the following LaTeX or Word templates:
All papers must strictly comply with ACM Conference Proceedings format, Option 2 (tighter 'Alternate' style).
The LaTeX and Word templates provided above adhere to the style and already contain the a permission block, conference location, and ISBN, which needs to be replaced by:
Please be sure to use the correct Category and Subject Descriptor in your paper. Failure to meet the formatting guidelines could result in your paper not being included in the proceedings
All the DISIO workshop papers are “full papers”: 8 pages. (Submission via Confy web site).
Papers are required to use 9-point Times-Roman font. Please make sure that all fonts and subset fonts are embedded using one of the following approaches:
Each paper should contain an abstract of 100 to 150 words that appears at the beginning of the document.
Do not put page numbers on your document. Page numbers will be added to the papers when the conference proceedings are assembled.
References should be numbered in alphabetical order by lead author last name. Within the text, citations to references should appear as the appropriate reference number in square brackets (see the template above for examples). The end of the document must include a list of appropriate references; please avoid unnecessary abbreviations in citations.
Figures must appear within the designated margins, but may span two columns. If possible, position figures at the top of columns, rather than in the middle or at the bottom. Each figure must be numbered and contain an appropriate caption. Any halftone figures must be clear in black and white. Do not link to any graphics — the manuscript must be fully self-contained.
Note about Word: Graphics should be inserted, rather than cutting and pasting. The manuscript's graphics should have resolutions of 600dpi for monochrome, 300 dpi for grayscale, and 300 dpi for color. We suggest that you use a text box to insert a graphic (which is ideally a 300 dpi TIFF or EPS file, with all fonts embedded) because, in a Word document, this method is somewhat more stable than directly inserting a picture. To have non-visible rules on your frame, use the MS Word “Format” pull-down menu, select Text Box > Colors and Lines to choose No Fill and No Line.
Prior to uploading, please ensure that your paper meets all of the necessary criteria (outlined above):
