Workshop Organizer Information

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are a workshop organizer below is some frequently asked questions.

  1. About camera-ready copies:
    • You are responsible for collecting camera-ready papers from your authors. These can be through whatever means you use to get the initial submissions. Make sure final papers do not have page numbers on them.
    • ACM will ask for authors to sign (electronically, I believe) copyright forms when the time comes. You will need to provide ACM with a list of accepted papers, including the author names and email for the main author. We will provide more information on this later.
    • The format of camera ready papers should follow the same as the main technical conference. Information on that format is available here.
    • You are responsible for generating front-matter to the workshop proceedings (title page, description, PC, etc.). This should contain at least a title page and a description of the workshop, but you can include PC and table of content as well should you so desire--however, ACM DL will generate a TOC automatically. It should be in PDF.
    • You will need to provide final proceedings to ACM. Instructions will come later as we get more information from ACM.
  2. About copyright: the rights retained by authors who transfer copyright to ACM can be found here.

FAQ for Workshop Organizers

    • The paper MUST follow the ACM format.
  3. Can we have demos and posters?
    • No special equipment will be provided by the conference to support posters (e.g. boards). If you plan to use the walls then you must ensure that you do not damage them.
  4. Who will provide lunch?
    • It is up to each individual workshop to handle the lunch issue.
  5. Will registration be handled through the KDD Web page?

Providing ACM with Copyright Forms:

ACM has an automated copyright form collection system for ACM published proceedings. Accepted authors are sent the ACM form and complete instructions. A weekly reminder is sent to authors with outstanding forms. Reminders are sent every week until four weeks before the conference/workshop.

You will have access to the system and can monitor the form submissions. All of the copyright forms must be submitted/approved four weeks prior to your conference/workshop, and viable paper/front matter files submitted to ensure DL inclusion of the proceedings on the first day of the conference/workshop.

The publication should not be distributed in any format until the copyright forms have been approved.

To initiate the automated copyright form system, ACM will need the following information in a .csv file:
"Paper Type", "Title", "Lead Author;Author2;Author3;etc.", "Lead Author e-mail"
Please note that papers of 5 pages in length or longer are considered Full Papers.

Sample record: "Full Paper", "This is a Sample Title", "Adrienne Griscti;Donna Cappo;John Smith", ""

"Paper Type" : Please include one of the following paper types (only) for each of the submissions:

  • Abstract
  • Course
  • Notes
  • Demo
  • Doctorial
  • Consortium
  • Extended Abstract
  • Full Paper
  • Invited Talk
  • Panel
  • Poster
  • Short Paper (4-5 pages)
  • Tutorial

"Title": Please include the paper title as it will appear in the proceedings.

"Author": Please list the lead author first, and include all contributing authors, separated by semi colons

"Lead Author email": Please provide the e-mail address for the lead author. The lead author will be sent the copyright form and be asked to endorse the form on behalf of all contributing authors.
