Instructions for Author

Submissions must be original, unpublished work, and not have been submitted to another conference or journal for publication. Papers should be no more than 8 pages (2-column, 10pt ACM format) plus unlimited pages for references. All the submissions should be double-blind (more instructions below) and will be peer-reviewed. Per the anonymity guidelines, you must remove any author names. AINTEC 2021 proceedings will be included in the ACM Digital Library.

Word and Latex templates for the submission can be found here (search for "2. The Workflow and Templates"): https://www.acm.org/publications/authors/submissions. ACM has partnered with Overleaf, a free cloud-based, collaborative authoring tool, to provide an ACM LaTeX authoring template. When using Latex, the following declaration sets the font size to 10pt, removes the author names, and removes the copyright box: \documentclass[10pt,sigconf,letterpaper,anonymous,nonacm]{acmart}

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted for publication in the conference proceedings, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the conference. Authors of accepted papers must pay for their registration on or before the camera ready version deadline.

Presentations and Participation

We hope to hold a hybrid event consisting of both in-presence attendance, as well as remote virtual participation for those authors or attendees who are unable to travel. Depending on the final event format, we may request authors to submit a video presentation for the talk.

Double-blind requirements

All submitted papers will be assessed through a double-blind review process. This means that the authors do not see who are the reviewers and the reviewers do not see who are the authors. As an author, you should do your best to ensure that your paper submission does not directly or indirectly reveal the authors’ identities. The following steps are minimal requirements for a double-blind submission:

  • Remove all personal information about the authors from the paper (e.g., names, affiliations)
  • Remove acknowledgements to organizations and/or people
  • Any when referring in the paper to your previous work, this should be done similarly to any other work, as if you are not an author of that work.
  • Do not add references to external repositories or technical reports that can be used to identify any of the authors or institutions/organizations. You are encouraged to mention that your code will be made available during your submission.
  • Uploading a version of the paper to a non-peer-reviewer location is acceptable. The authors should however avoid advertising the paper on popular mailing lists and social media.
At the same time, PC members should not actively try to de-anonymize the authors’ identities. Any violation of the double-blind reviewing process should be reported to the PC chairs.

Guidelines for Submission of Camera Ready Version and Author Registration

Updated: November 10, 2021

The conference proceedings will be published by the ACM Digital Library. The deadline for completing the submission in The ACM Production System (TAPS) is November 19, 2021 (This is equivalent to the traditional Camera ready submission) . Please try to complete it earlier if possible.

Completed Copyright forms:

  • ACM has an automated copyright form collection system for ACM published proceedings. Accepted authors will be sent the ACM form and complete instructions. A weekly reminder will be sent to authors with outstanding forms. Reminders will be sent every week until four weeks before the conference/workshop. All of the copyright forms must be submitted/approved four weeks prior to AINTEC 2021. As rights management emails are sent from an automated system, these may wind up in SPAM folders. Please make sure that you set SPAM settings to allow emails from rightsreview@acm.org.
  • Before completing the copyright form please allow emails from tapsadmin@aptaracorp.awsapps.com to arrive in your inbox in case it will go to SPAM folder, an instruction of using TAPS will be sent to you.

The copyright form has been sent to the main authors - November 10, 2021

The ACM Publishing System (TAPS)

ACM encouraged the use of TAPS which generates both accessibility-friendly PDF and responsive HTML5 versions to ensure the widest possible readership.

  • You should have receive an email from tapsadmin@aptaracorp.awsapps.com after submitting your copyright form on instructions how to use TAPS. If you have not receive any instruction please check your SPAM folder and or let us know(aintec-sec@interlab.ait.ac.th).
  • How to use TAPS
  • ACM Primary Article Templates AND Publication Workflow
  • Maximum of 8 pages for text and figures plus unlimited pages for references (PDF) - Generated from TAPS

    Note: Authors will submit their source files in single-column format for production processing. TAPS will produce a 2-column formatted PDF and a responsive, single-column HTML5 file.

Please follow the the instructions from TAPS instead of the old instructions below (Traditional Camera Ready Submission)
  • A text file of meta data used for the Digital Library
  • Your paper should use the default ACM template. In TeX, you should use \documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}
  • Note that the submission instructions required you to use 10pt font; the default size for the most recent ACM template is 9pt, which means you will have more space to address the comments by the reviewers. Please do not forget to remove the “10pt” clause from the \documentclass command.
