Paper Submission Instructions
Thanks for your interest in IMC 2006. To submit a paper, you will need to
complete the following 3 simple steps. Please follow the instructions
carefully to avoid any problems with the handling of your paper.
Step 1:Paper/Abstract Registration
Register your paper at the IMC 2006 Paper Submission Web Site. You must do this by 22:00 EDT, May 19, 2006.
Step 2: Paper Requirements
Please make sure that your paper satisfies ALL of the following
requirements before being submitted:
- The paper must be registered (see Step 1 above).
- The paper must be original material that has not been
previously published nor is currently under review by another conference or
journal. All material in the paper that overlaps reviously published or
simultaneously submitted papers from any of the authors must be
- The paper must have an abstract of under 250 words.
- The paper must conform with the page limits given in the Call for Papers: at most 6
pages for extended abstracts and at most 14 pages for full papers. The
paper must also conform with the following formating guidelines. Submissions
that do not conform with both formatting instructions and page limits will
not be reviewed.
- Paper format:
- Two-column, 10 point serif font (or higher) used for the main text body.
- Margins and layout must follow ACM guidelines: double
column, with each column 9.25" by 3.33", 0.33" space between columns.
Each column must contain no more than 55 lines of text. For the
submission, please do not use the SIG template - use the standard LaTeX
"article" format in 10 point, double column with page numbering.
- Formatted for black-and-white printers and not color
printers. This is especially true for plots and graphs in the paper.
- Please number the pages.
- Along with the names of the authors, the front page should indicate
both of the following:
- The paper ID number, which is the login password assigned
during the paper registration process (see step 1 above).
- The total number of pages in the submission.
- A footnote indicating that the paper can be considered for the
Best Paper Award. This is based on the authors making the datasets
used in their work openly available to the community by the camera
ready deadline on August 25, 006.
- Please make sure that the output has been formatted for printing on
LETTER size paper. If generating a Postscript file using "dvips", use
the option "-t letter".
- The paper must be submitted in Postscript or PDF format. We
cannot accept any other format, and we must be able to print the
document just as we receive it.
- It is possible that the program committee may decide that a full length
version of a paper does not meet the standard for acceptance, but that an
extended abstract version would be acceptable. Authors will have the
option on the IMC 2006 Paper Submission Web Site to specify whether or not
they would like their full length papers to be considered for this
alternative form of acceptance. There is no penalty for either choice, and
full length papers accepted as extended abstracts will be shepherded.
Step 3: Paper Submission

the IMC 2006 Paper Submission Web Site.You
must do this by 22:00 EDT, May 26, 2006.
