Author Instructions for Camera-Ready Conference Papers
- Exhaustively consider reviewer comments. Make sure you have
done your best to address the comments in the reviews of your paper.
Make sure your paper:
- does not exceed the page limit specified in the acceptance-notification e-mail,
- is in PDF format,
- is in letter page size,
- has all fonts embedded in the PDF file,
- uses only scalable font types (like Type 1, TrueType) --- bit-mapped font types (like Type 3) are not acceptable,
- does not have page numbers, headers, and footers,
does not use footnotes and references in the abstract,
has all figures embedded in vector graphics
(if not possible, use a high-resolution bitmap format of at least 300 dpi;
do not use JPG, but a lossless format like PNG or GIF),
has all text in figures and tables large enough and readable when printed,
has a caption for every figure or table,
has the title and all headings properly capitalized (cf. Section Help),
provides the country of the affiliation on the title page,
has no orphans and widows (cf. Section Help), and
has balanced columns on the last page, if the page is not filled.
The use of color in regular body text (e.g., in order to emphasize words, URLs, or citations)
is discouraged due to reduced readability and greyscale printing.
The use of color is allowed in figures, tables, listings, and in non-body text,
such as source code, XML snippets, etc.
