Checklist for Authors

  1. Complete the ACM e-Rights agreement as soon as possible.
  2. Register for the conference
  3. Prepare your camera-ready manuscript
  4. Upload your camera-ready manuscript

Note: if any of the above steps are skipped, the paper will not be included in the conference proceedings.

1. Complete the ACM e-Rights agreement

Click the “Edit” tab on the upper left-hand portion of the HotCRP page of your paper, then you can access the ACM e-Rights form. Please complete the form as soon as possible.

Note that ACM will use its automated system upon completion of the form to email you additional instructions for your camera-ready manuscript preparation. Please set your email spam settings to allow messages from rightsreview@acm.org.

2. Register for the conference

To ensure the inclusion of the paper in the final proceedings, at least one author per paper must complete a full conference registration before uploading the camera-ready version.

The registration site will open soon.

Once the registration is completed, please send an email to the Registration Chair, Laura Galluccio (laura.galluccio@unict.it), to confirm the registration, with the subject [ACM Mobihoc 2023 Registration] and then report in the body the paper number, paper title, and the registered author. We need to verify the name of the author who is registered for each paper.

3. Prepare your camera-ready manuscript

  • Use the ACM templates from: http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. Modifications to the ACM templates are not allowed. The final PDF will be checked for consistency with these templates. Non-compliance may result in your publication being rejected.
  • If you are using LaTeX, please refer to the sample file “sample-sigconf.tex” after you download the .zip templates file and unzip it.
  • Note that the document class “\documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}” should be used
  • The rights and permissions information, conference information, and bibliographic strip (your paper’s DOI and ACM MobiHoc’s ISBN) must appear on the lower left-hand portion of the first page, following the instructions you have received from ACM after filling out the e-Rights form via the ACM rights-management tool on the HotCRP page of the paper.
  • Choose the appropriate ACM CCS concepts or categories from this website: https://dl.acm.org/ccs/ccs.cfm. Specifically, you need to assign the CCS concepts, click “Generate CCS Codes” and copy the TeX code to your LaTeX for your camera-ready paper.
  • CCS Concepts, user-defined keywords, and ACM Reference Format text are mandatory for all papers and should be included in the camera-ready PDF as well as on HotCRP.
  • Page numbers should not appear in the camera-ready PDF.
  • The page limit for publications in the main conference is 10 pages. Workshop papers are limited to 6 pages (or 3 if extended abstracts/poster papers). Demo and poster papers in the main conference are limited to 2 pages.
  • The demo title should begin with “Demo: “, and the poster title should begin with “Poster: “.
  • Your PDF submission should have all fonts embedded. If you are unsure about how to check for this, see: http://www.acm.org/binaries/content/assets/publications/word-to-pdf-instructions-.txt.
  • Your PDF should not include Type 3 fonts. Embedded matplotlib figures are a common source of Type3 fonts. If your submission uses matplotlib, try rebuilding your figures with these parameter settings:
    • import matplotlib
    • matplotlib.rcParams[‘pdf.fonttype’] = 42
    • matplotlib.rcParams[‘ps.fonttype’] = 42
    • Another common sources of Type3 fonts are LaTeX packages (e.g., bbm).
  • Submit through HotCRP all of the following:
    • source files
    • ACM keywords
    • ACM CCS concepts (the CCS XML codes that were generated, not the CCS TeX code)
    • references
    • camera-ready PDF.
