Preparing your submission:
1) Follow the right template when preparing your contribution.
During review phase – in ALL paper submissions – we are using a simplified variant of the ACM template (due to the many problems with the template used for PDC2018).
Download PDC simplified template for Microsoft WORD: [PDC2020-submission template V1]
NOTE: Full Papers, Exploratory Papers, Interactive Workshops, Tutorials, and Exhibitions / Situated Actions submissions (Vol 1 and 2) will use the official ACM International Conference Series template for the camera ready versions (those templates are more complex and require some familiarity and work). All other submissions (Vol 3) will continue to use the simplified template.
If you want to use Latex templates, download them from the ACM site (use the sigconf template, this does not match exactly the simplified version but will suffice for now).
Beyond Academy is using an online form.
Submissions for all double blind peer review categories (Full Papers, Plurilingual track papers and Exploratory papers) should be anonymised. This means:
Authors are expected to remove author and institutional identity from the title and header of the paper, as well as any information embedded within the meta-data of the submission file.
Leave the acknowledgements section blank
Leave citations to your own previous work unanonymised, if they are important to ensure reviewers understand that all previous research has been taken into account. However, refer to them in the third person (e.g., avoid “… as described in our previous work , … ” and use instead “as described by , …”)
Further suppression of identity in the body of the paper (references to specific projects, regions, names) is left to the authors’ discretion.
