Page limits:

  • Full papers: up to 14 pages excluding references;
  • Short papers/Position papers/Demo papers: up to 7 pages excluding references.

Papers that exceed the page limits or formatting guidelines will be returned without review.

Submissions should be single blinded, i.e. authors names should be included in the submissions.

Papers must be formatted according to the new workflow for ACM publications. The templates and instructions are available here:

Authors should submit their papers as single-column. The templates are available here (we strongly recommend the usage of LaTeX for the camera-ready papers to minimize the extent of reformatting):

NB: Accepted papers will require a further revision in order to meet the requirements and page limits of the camera-ready format required by ACM. Instructions for the preparation of the camera-ready versions of the papers will be provided after acceptance. 

All papers should be submitted in PDF format via the online submission system by selecting the track "workshop PATCH":

An international panel of experts will review all submissions.

Work that has already been published should not be submitted unless it introduces a significant addition to the previously published work.

There will be a conference adjunct proceedings published by ACM where all the workshop papers will be published.
