Submission and formatting guidelines

The submissions in all categories are subject to double-blind peer review. For previous PDC conferences, the acceptance rate for research papers has been about 25% and for the other submission categories approximately 50%.

All submissions should follow the ACM ICPS format (Link).

The PDC 2016 proceedings will be published as part of the International Conference Proceedings Series published by the ACM and available online from the ACM Digital Library. Accepted full papers will comprise Volume I of the proceedings. Volume II of the proceedings will comprise the accepted papers in the other submission categories (short papers, workshops & tutorials, and interactive exhibitions). Authors of accepted papers will need to complete the ACM copyright form and adhere to the given deadlines of the review process as a condition of inclusion in the proceedings. At least one author must attend the conference in order for the paper to be published. Only PDF files (.pdf) may be submitted and submissions are only accepted through the PDC conference management system.
