Submission Formats - SAICSIT Main Conference and Postgraduate Symposium

Please Note: All submissions in all categories of the SAICSIT 2010 Main Conference and the Postgraduate Symposium will must follow the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series prescribed format.

 

The Proceedings of the SAICSIT 2010 Main Conference will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings series and be available on the ACM digital library. Papers therefore have to strictly adhere to criteria for this series. We have already customized the paper formats for the SAICSIT 2010 Conference and you should use these customised formats for your submission.

Papers that do not follow the template may be excluded from the conference proceedings. The maximum paper length as stipulated in the various submission categories will also be strictly enforced.

For all the tracks, the versions submitted for review must be uploaded in .PDF format. Any questions regarding the formatting and uploading of submissions should be directed to: saicsit2010@gmail.com.

 

Details about the submission system and where to submit a paper, see the SAICSIT 2010 Submission Page.

Acceptable Formats

 Two formats are acceptable:

  • MS Word (this is the preferred format).
  • LaTeX2e format (no additional libraries or special fonts may be used). 

 

Papers that do not follow the template may be excluded from the conference proceedings. The maximum paper length as stipulated in the various submission categories will also be strictly enforced.

 For all the tracks, the versions submitted for review must be uploaded in .PDF format. Both the original document (and source files for LaTeX) and PDF versions will be required for accepted papers.

 

The relevant templates that should be used for SAICSIT 2010 can be downloaded via the following links:

  • MS Word Guidelines and Template. For those authors using EndNote, we have also uploaded an EndNote style that you can use.
  • LaTex Guidelines and Template. A word to the LaTeX expert: If you have routinely used LaTEX or TEX for a long time, you may be tempted to write your own improvements to the structural definitions in the sig-alternate.cls file, add additional libraries, fonts or to use other commands to streamline typesetting. Please refrain from doing this!  Remember your final submission file will be recompiled at ACM (to insert page numbers etc.) using known .tex, .sty and .cls files. ACM's reference files will, therefore, not contain any author tweaks or local enhancements. Problems will arise if your source file expects them to. Also, please be very careful when using \def in your source file as you may, inadvertantly, redefine a reserved LaTEX or TEX keyword.

 

Please use only these templates and not those provided on the ACM website - the templates above have already  been customised for the SAICSIT 2010 conference.
