SIGCHI Conference Proceedings Format Leave Authors Anonymous for Submission City, Country e-mail address Leave Authors Anonymous for Submission City, Country e-mail address ABSTRACT UPDATED—January 16, 2019. This sample paper describes the formatting requirements for SIGCHI conference proceedings, and offers recommendations on writing for the worldwide SIGCHI readership. Please review this document even if you have submitted to SIGCHI conferences before, as some format details have changed relative to previous years. Abstracts should be about 150 words and are required. ACM Classification Keywords H.5.m. Information Interfaces and Presentation (e.g. HCI): Miscellaneous; See http://acm.org/about/class/1998/ for the full list of ACM classifiers. This section is required. Author Keywords Authors’ choice; of terms; separated; by semicolons; include commas, within terms only; required. INTRODUCTION This format is to be used for submissions that are published in the conference proceedings. We wish to give this volume a consistent, high-quality appearance. We therefore ask that authors follow some simple guidelines. You should format your paper exactly like this document. The easiest way to do this is to replace the content with your own material. This document describes how to prepare your submissions using LATEX. PAGE SIZE AND COLUMNS On each page your material should fit within a rectangle of 7 × 9.15 inches (18 × 23.2 cm), centered on a US Letter page (8.5 × 11 inches), beginning 0.85 inches (1.9 cm) from the top of the page, with a 0.3 inches (0.85 cm) space between two 3.35 inches (8.4 cm) columns. Right margins should be justified, not ragged. Please be sure your document and PDF are US letter and not A4.

CHI’16, May 07–12, 2016, San Jose, CA, USA © 2016 Copyright held by the owner/author(s). Publication rights licensed to ACM. ISBN 123-4567-24-567/08/06. . . $15.00 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.475/123_4 Leave Authors Anonymous for Submission City, Country e-mail address For example, content paragraphs like this one are formatted using the Normal style. LATEX sometimes will create overfull lines that extend into columns. To attempt to combat this, the .cls file has a command, \sloppy, that essentially asks LATEX to prefer underfull lines with extra whitespace. For more details on this, and info on how to control it more finely, check out http: //www.economics.utoronto.ca/osborne/latex/PMAKEUP.HTM. Title and Authors Your paper’s title, authors and affiliations should run across the full width of the page in a single column 17.8 cm (7 in.) wide. The title should be in Helvetica or Arial 18-point bold. Authors’ names should be in Times New Roman or Times Roman 12-point bold, and affiliations in 12-point regular. See \author section of this template for instructions on how to format the authors. For more than three authors, you may have to place some address information in a footnote, or in a named section at the end of your paper. Names may optionally be placed in a single centered row instead of at the top of each column. Leave one 10-point line of white space below the last line of affiliations. Abstract and Keywords Every submission should begin with an abstract of about 150 words, followed by a set of Author Keywords and ACM Classification Keywords. The abstract and keywords should be placed in the left column of the first page under the left half of the title. The abstract should be a concise statement of the problem, approach, and conclusions of the work described. It should clearly state the paper’s contribution to the field of HCI. Normal or Body Text Please use a 10-point Times New Roman or Times Roman font or, if this is unavailable, another proportional font with serifs, as close as possible in appearance to Times Roman 10-point. Other than Helvetica or Arial headings, please use sans-serif or non-proportional fonts only for special purposes, such as source code text. First Page Copyright Notice This template include a sample ACM copyright notice at the bottom of page 1, column 1. Upon acceptance, you will be provided with the appropriate copyright statement and unique DOI string for publication. Accepted papers will be distributed in the conference publications. They will also be placed in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain \subsection, and \subsubsection commands will work fine in this template. FIGURES/CAPTIONS Figure 1. Insert a caption below each figure. Do not alter the Caption style. One-line captions should be centered; multi-line should be justified. Test Conditions Name Marsden Nass Borriello Karat First Second Final 223.0 22.2 22.9 34.9 44 16 11 2200 432,321 234,333 93,123 103,322 Table 1. Table captions should be placed below the table. We recommend table lines be 1 point, 25% black. Minimize use of table grid lines. accessible to thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide. See http://acm.org/publications/policies/copyright_ policy for the ACM’s copyright and permissions policy. Place figures and tables at the top or bottom of the appropriate column or columns, on the same page as the relevant text (see Figure 1). A figure or table may extend across both columns to a maximum width of 17.78 cm (7 in.). Captions should be Times New Roman or Times Roman 9point bold. They should be numbered (e.g., “Table 1” or “Figure 1”), centered and placed beneath the figure or table. Please note that the words “Figure” and “Table” should be spelled out (e.g., “Figure” rather than “Fig.”) wherever they occur. Figures, like Figure 2, may span columns and all figures should also include alt text for improved accessibility. Papers and notes may use color figures, which are included in the page limit; the figures must be usable when printed in blackand-white in the proceedings. The paper may be accompanied by a short video figure up to five minutes in length. However, the paper should stand on its own without the video figure, as the video may not be available to everyone who reads the paper. Subsequent Pages Inserting Images On pages beyond the first, start at the top of the page and continue in double-column format. The two columns on the last page should be of equal length. When possible, include a vector formatted graphic (i.e. PDF or EPS). When including bitmaps, use an image editing tool to resize the image at the appropriate printing resolution (usually 300 dpi). References and Citations Use a numbered list of references at the end of the article, ordered alphabetically by last name of first author, and referenced by numbers in brackets [1, 2, 7]. Your references should be published materials accessible to the public. Internal technical reports may be cited only if they are easily accessible (i.e., you provide the address for obtaining the report within your citation) and may be obtained by any reader for a nominal fee. Proprietary information may not be cited. Private communications should be acknowledged in the main text, not referenced (e.g., “[Borriello, personal communication]”). References should be in ACM citation format: http://acm.org/ publications/submissions/latex_style. This includes citations to internet resources [1, 3, 4, 9] according to ACM format, although it is often appropriate to include URLs directly in the text, as above. QUOTATIONS Quotations may be italicized when “placed inline” (Anab, 23F). Longer quotes, when placed in their own paragraph, need not be italicized or in quotation marks when indented (Ramon, 39M). LANGUAGE, STYLE, AND CONTENT The written and spoken language of SIGCHI is English. Spelling and punctuation may use any dialect of English (e.g., British, Canadian, US, etc.) provided this is done consistently. Hyphenation is optional. To ensure suitability for an international audience, please pay attention to the following: • Write in a straightforward style. • Try to avoid long or complex sentence structures. SECTIONS The heading of a section should be in Helvetica or Arial 9point bold, all in capitals. Sections should not be numbered. • Briefly define or explain all technical terms that may be unfamiliar to readers. Subsections • Explain all acronyms the first time they are used in your text—e.g., “Digital Signal Processing (DSP)”. Headings of subsections should be in Helvetica or Arial 9point bold with initial letters capitalized. For sub-sections and sub-subsections, a word like the or of is not capitalized unless it is the first word of the heading. Sub-subsections Headings for sub-subsections should be in Helvetica or Arial 9point italic with initial letters capitalized. Standard \section, • Explain local references (e.g., not everyone knows all city names in a particular country). • Explain “insider” comments. Ensure that your whole audience understands any reference whose meaning you do not describe (e.g., do not assume that everyone has used a Macintosh or a particular application). Figure 2. In this image, the map maximizes use of space. You can make figures as wide as you need, up to a maximum of the full width of both columns. Note that LATEX tends to render large figures on a dedicated page. Image: c b d ayman on Flickr. • Explain colloquial language and puns. Understanding phrases like “red herring” may require a local knowledge of English. Humor and irony are difficult to translate. 3. Add tags to the PDF • Use unambiguous forms for culturally localized concepts, such as times, dates, currencies, and numbers (e.g., “1–5– 97” or “5/1/97” may mean 5 January or 1 May, and “seven o’clock” may mean 7:00 am or 19:00). For currencies, indicate equivalences: “Participants were paid ₩ 25,000, or roughly US $22.” 5. Set the tab order to “Use Document Structure” 4. Verify the default language For more information and links to instructions and resources, please see: http://chi2016.acm.org/accessibility. The \hyperref package allows you to create well tagged PDF files, please see the preamble of this template for an example. • Be careful with the use of gender-specific pronouns (he, she) and other gendered words (chairman, manpower, manmonths). Use inclusive language that is gender-neutral (e.g., she or he, they, s/he, chair, staff, staff-hours, personyears). See the Guidelines for Bias-Free Writing for further advice and examples regarding gender and other personal attributes . Be particularly aware of considerations around writing about people with disabilities. Your final submission should not contain footer or header information at the top or bottom of each page. Specifically, your final submission should not include page numbers. Initial submissions may include page numbers, but these must be removed for camera-ready. Page numbers will be added to the PDF when the proceedings are assembled. • If possible, use the full (extended) alphabetic character set for names of persons, institutions, and places (e.g., Grønbæk, Lafreniére, Sánchez, Nguyễn, Universität, Weißenbach, Züllighoven, Århus, etc.). These characters are already included in most versions and variants of Times, Helvetica, and Arial fonts. We recommend that you produce a PDF version of your submission well before the final deadline. Your PDF file must be ACM DL Compliant. The requirements for an ACM Compliant PDF are available at: http://www.sheridanprinting.com/ typedept/ACM-distilling-settings.htm. ACCESSIBILITY The Executive Council of SIGCHI has committed to making SIGCHI conferences more inclusive for researchers, practitioners, and educators with disabilities. As a part of this goal, the all authors are asked to work on improving the accessibility of their submissions. Specifically, we encourage authors to carry out the following five steps: 1. Add alternative text to all figures 2. Mark table headings PAGE NUMBERING, HEADERS AND FOOTERS PRODUCING AND TESTING PDF FILES Test your PDF file by viewing or printing it with the same software we will use when we receive it, Adobe Acrobat Reader Version 10. This is widely available at no cost. Note that most reviewers will use a North American/European version of Acrobat reader, so please check your PDF accordingly. When creating your PDF from Word, ensure that you generate a tagged PDF from improved accessibility. This can be done by using the Adobe PDF add-in, also called PDFMaker. Select Acrobat | Preferences from the ribbon and ensure that “Enable Accessibility and Reflow with tagged Adobe PDF” is selected. You can then generate a tagged PDF by selecting “Create PDF” from the Acrobat ribbon. CONCLUSION It is important that you write for the SIGCHI audience. Please read previous years’ proceedings to understand the writing style and conventions that successful authors have used. It is particularly important that you state clearly what you have done, not merely what you plan to do, and explain how your work is different from previously published work, i.e., the unique contribution that your work makes to the field. Please consider what the reader will learn from your submission, and how they will find your work useful. If you write with these questions in mind, your work is more likely to be successful, both in being accepted into the conference, and in influencing the work of our field. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Sample text: We thank all the volunteers, and all publications support and staff, who wrote and provided helpful comments on previous versions of this document. Authors 1, 2, and 3 gratefully acknowledge the grant from NSF (#1234–2012– ABC). This whole paragraph is just an example. REFERENCES FORMAT Your references should be published materials accessible to the public. Internal technical reports may be cited only if they are easily accessible and may be obtained by any reader for a nominal fee. Proprietary information may not be cited. Private communications should be acknowledged in the main text, not referenced (e.g., [Golovchinsky, personal communication]). References must be the same font size as other body text. References should be in alphabetical order by last name of first author. Use a numbered list of references at the end of the article, ordered alphabetically by last name of first author, and referenced by numbers in brackets. For papers from conference proceedings, include the title of the paper and the name of the conference. Do not include the location of the conference or the exact date; do include the page numbers if available. References should be in ACM citation format: http://www.acm. org/publications/submissions/latex_style. This includes citations to Internet resources [4, 3, 9] according to ACM format, although it is often appropriate to include URLs directly in the text, as above. Example reference formatting for individual journal articles , articles in conference proceedings , books , theses , book chapters , an entire journal issue , websites [1, 3], tweets , patents , games , and online videos  is given here. See the examples of citations at the end of this document and in the accompanying BibTeX document. This formatting is a edited version of the format automatically generated by the ACM Digital Library (http://dl.acm.org) as “ACM Ref.” DOI and/or URL links are optional but encouraged as are full first names. Note that the Hyperlink style used throughout this document uses blue links; however, URLs in the references section may optionally appear in black. REFERENCES 1. ACM. 1998.
