SIGCSE 2009 Format Instructions
and includes all required sections (i.e., Abstract,
Categories & Subject Descriptors, General Terms,
and Keywords). These are the same guidelines published
when you submitted your paper/panel/special session,

modifications. We encourage authors to use the
templates available on ACM's website.
LaTeX users should use
for papers and
for panels and special sessions.
Sheridan Publishing Guidelines -
Your final submission must also conform to items

Electronic Submissions Only!
THREE SUBMISSIONS ARE NECESSARY BY THE DEADLINE
-- one to the online database maintained by SIGCSE
and two to the publisher. You must also submit a signed
copyright release form or permission form depending
on the submission type.
The instructions below will guide you in submitting
the final copies to the online database and the publisher.
- Complete final editing and create a PDF file
of your submission. Name your files correctly.
Complete final preparation of your submission
according to the instructions listed
and then convert your paper into Adobe PDF format.
Be sure to retain a copy of the source document, as well.
Refer to our
hints on creating PDF documents.
Name all of your files using your SIGCSE submission number
and the lead author's last name (e.g.,
fp309-turing.pdf, fp309-turing.doc, etc.).
- Submit the
PDF file of your submission
to the SIGCSE online database.
Using the ID number and password assigned to your
submission for review, submit the PDF file
of the final copy to the SIGCSE online database
by accessing the
Form for Submitting Materials and Updating Proposer Information.
This step is necessary because we make the submissions
available on-line (via links from the on-line program)
prior to the start of the conference and well before
they will be available from the ACM Digital Library.
- Submit the
PDF and original source file(s)
of your submission
to the publisher of the proceedings.
The publisher is to receive (1) the PDF file
and (2) a copy of the actual source file(s).
The source file is needed to allow the publisher
to extract text and data to produce the metadata for the
ACM Digital Library.
Submit two files (.doc and .pdf)
if using Microsoft Word, or three files
(.tex, .ps, and .pdf)
if using LaTeX to the publisher using the
instructions on the publisher's website.
Note that the publisher's website will be activated
for uploading final submission files by November 12.
You should have received one or more
"Submission Reminder" emails from the publisher
(from Lisa Tolles) that include a customized link
for easy submission of your paper.
Your paper identification number is in the subject
of this email. Use this number if requested when
you enter the publisher's site, and also
as the first part of your filename.
After confirmation from the publisher, submit the signed ACM Copyright Form or Permission Form.
After submitting your document on the publisher's website, the publisher will send the contact author a confirmation message. After your paper has been processed, you will be emailed a link to an electronic ACM Copyright Form. Fill out and submit this form. Note that no links to the copyright forms have gone out yet; the electronic copyright form is still being set up.
For panels and special sessions:
After submitting your document on the publisher's website,
the publisher will send the contact author a confirmation
message with a link to an ACM Permission Form.
Print the form, fill it out, and fax the form
to the publisher. Fax instructions for panels
and special sessions are available at the
publisher's web page for panels and special sessions.
- Send email to the publications chair to indicate
that you have completed all of the steps above.
