Information related to Template changes
Last update: 13 June 2019, 10:52 (BST)
ACM requires a template change of all accepted UbiComp / ISWC 2019 submissions to the new ACM SIGCHI Master Article template. This applies to all submissions including adjunct proceedings (i.e. for workshops, posters, & demos). This does not apply to articles submitted to or published by IMWUT for which you need to follow the IMWUT author guidelines.
My submission was already accepted, does this change affect me?
Yes, all accepted submissions have to use the new template for the Camera-Ready-Version.
The new template has impact on the page limit of my submission.
We are aware that in some cases, the new format may have an impact on the length of your submission. At this point, all page limits remain valid as advertised in the original CfP. In edge cases, track chairs may decide on a case by case basis after conversion to the new template.
I was advised to use the ACM Extended Abstract format in the CfP email/ website
The changes described here affect all UbiComp/ ISWC 2019 submissions and overrule information found elsewhere (unless you've been directly advised by the responsible chair). If you are uncertain or have any questions, please contact the responsible chairs.
