Orlando, FL | October 26-28, 2023

We strongly encourage all authors whose proposals are accepted to submit to the peer-reviewed Conference Proceedings. We review papers by academic standards, relevance, conceptual quality, innovation, and clarity.

Explore Proceedings from 2022, 2021, and 2020.

  • Results and experiences described in proceedings papers and extended and poster abstracts must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
  • After peer-review based notification of acceptance, full-length papers and extended abstracts are then reviewed and returned to authors for final edits and ACM formatting.
  • Authors then re-submit papers and abstracts as “camera-ready” submissions. Papers and extended abstracts are published in the Conference Proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.

By submitting your article to an ACM Publication, you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM’s new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects and updated Policy on Authorship, which addresses criteria for authorship and the use of generative AI in publications. Alleged violations of these policies or any ACM Publications Policy will be investigated by ACM and may result in a full retraction of your paper, in addition to other potential penalties, as per ACM Publications Policy.

Please ensure that you and each of your co-authors obtain an ORCID ID, so you can complete the publishing process for your accepted paper.  ACM has been involved in ORCID from the start and we have recently made a commitment to collect ORCID IDs from all of our published authors. The collection process has started and will roll out as a requirement throughout 2022. We are committed to improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution and contribute to ongoing community efforts around name normalization; your ORCID ID will help in these efforts.

Support and Workflow

Your Proceedings paper has a length requirement that depends on the type of presentation you are making. The ACM template puts about 700-750 words on each page (without images or tables).

  • Research Papers: 7-10 pages
  • Industry Insights: 2-3 pages
  • Experience Reports: 4-6 pages
  • Posters: 1-2 pages
  • Panel session: 1-2 pages

See the Types of Proposals page for more details. Please refer to SIGDOC’s Conference Proceedings page for information about the publishing workflow and templating.
