Instructions for the camera-ready version

If your paper is accepted for publication…

Congratulations!

Once accepted for publication, four steps remain before the paper actually appears in print.

First, the authors submit, using the online system, a PDF copy of their paper revised according to the recommendations made by the reviewers. Authors must explain how they have addressed the reviewers’ comments. The revised paper is sent to the appropriate Area Edtor, who will confirm that the revised paper adequately addresses the reviewer’s comments. When this approval is granted, the paper is ready for publication.

Second, the authors prepare a camera-ready version of the paper. This version of the paper must comply with the SIG Alternate ACM Proceedings template available at http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. A smaple Latex document prepared by Stefan Schmid could help you to prepare the final version correctly. You can find it at https://github.com/schmiste/ccr-template

Note that in this format:

 

  1. You must add a footer that indicates the name of the newsletter on the left (ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communication Review) and the volume and issue numbers on the right. With the later template, this can be achieved by placing the following Latex commands :
    		\documentclass{sig-alternate-05-2015}
    \usepackage{fancyhdr}
    \fancypagestyle{plain}{%
       \fancyhf{} %
       \renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt}%
       \fancyfoot[L]{ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communication Review }%
       \fancyfoot[R]{Volume 46 Issue 3, July 2016}%
    }
    \pagestyle{plain}
    \def\refname{}
    \begin{document}

    No other header or footer information (page numbers, names, ) should appear on the pages.

  2. The title of the paper, name(s) of author(s), affiliation(s) and e-mail address(es) should appear at the top of the first page.
  3. A short abstract of approximately 100 words should follow the title, names, and affiliations.
  4. The paper should be formatted for US Letter format.
  5. If your paper is an editorial note (i.e., has not been peer-reviewed), you must add a note stating: “This article is an editorial note submitted to CCR. It has NOT been peer reviewed. The author takes full responsibility for this article’s technical content.” immediately below the author affiliation. If you are using Latex, you can use the following incantation:
     \documentclass{sig-alternate-05-2015}
		\begin{document}
\title{Deep Thoughts}
\numberofauthors{1}
\author{\alignauthor I.M. Great\\
\affaddr{Top Notch Inc.}\\
\email{great@topnotch.com}\\
\vspace{11pt} {\normalsize This article is an editorial note submitted to CCR. It has NOT been peer reviewed. The author takes full responsibility for this article's technical content. Comments can be posted through CCR Online.\\
}}

 

For more than one author, use the following:

     \documentclass{sig-alternate-05-2015}
		\begin{document}
\title{Deep Thoughts}
\numberofauthors{1}
\author{
\begin{tabular*}{0.6\textwidth}%
{@{\extracolsep{\fill}}cc}
Kentaro Toyama & Muneeb Ali\\
\affaddr{Microsoft Research India} & \affaddr{Princeton University}\\
\email{kentoy@microsoft.com} & \email{muneeb@princeton.edu}
\end{tabular*}\\
\begin{tabular}{c}
\end{tabular}\\
\begin{tabular}{c}
{\normalsize This article is an editorial note submitted to CCR. It has NOT been peer reviewed.}\\
{\normalsize The authors take full responsibility for this article's
technical content. Comments can be posted through CCR Online.}
\end{tabular}
}

}}

 

Since the papers are published online and not anymore in print, authors are strongly encouraged to provide  clickable URLs in the papers. For the URLs that are referenced in the paper, this can be achieved with the latex url package. For the bibliography, authors are strongly encouraged to provide clickable Digital Object Identifiers for all the references that are identified by a DOI. Please refrain from providing links to personnal home pages and other non stable URLs in the bibliography.

Third, the author uploads the camera-ready version of the paper to on https://sigcomm-ccr.hotcrp.com.

Please send any suggestions for improving these instructions to the Editor.
