Checklist before you submit your GI paper

Before you submit your final version of your paper, please go through this checklist. The violation of these points have delayed and increased the amount of work involved in production of the proceedings last year. Hence we ask for your cooperation to make sure that these hints are followed.

  • Fonts and Margins
    Please check carefully that your fonts and margins conform to the formatting guidelines. Your paper will be returned if it does not conform to these guidelines or includes unreadable font.
  • Keywords
    A list of relevant keywords should be included at the conclusion of the paper's abstract. Additionally, descriptors from the ACM Computing Classification System should be used.
  • Copyright Space
    A 0.5 inch (1.27 cm) space must be left at the bottom of the left column on the first page of the paper for the copyright information added during the printing process.
  • Please use 8.5 X 11 paper size (letter).
    Unless absolutely necessary, please use 8.5 X 11 paper size. If you must use A4 page size for your documents, please use the top/left/right margins guidelines and make sure your columns are no longer than 9.25 inches (23.49 cm).
  • Length of the document
    Please make sure that the length of the document does not exceed the maximum pages allowed by the conference. The instructions for these additional features can be found on the GI formatting page.
  • Page Numbers
    Your pages should NOT include any page numbers.
  • Quality PDF documents
    Instructions for preparing quality PDF documents can be found here. Please take special care that:
    • all fonts are embedded
    • no type 3 fonts are used
  • 8.3 format for supplemental material
    If you are submitting supplemental material, please make sure that all your files have 8.3 characters as file names. Full instructions for preparing and submitting supplemental material can be found here.
  • Release forms
    Copyright for GI papers rests with the original authors. However, no paper can be published before we have received the appropriate release form for CHCCS. See the GI formatting page for details.
