The symposium topics include (but are not restricted to) the following:
All submissions must be original work, not previously published elsewhere, and not currently submitted to any other conference or journal. Electronic copies of accepted papers will be made available through the ACM Digital Library as part of the ICPS collection. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at: http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. Full papers have a maximum of length of 8 pages including all references, and short papers have a maximum length of 4 pages including references. All submissions will be fully refereed using a double blind refereeing process, at their full published length, and will comply with DEST criteria for fully-refereed conference papers (category E1). Papers will be submitted using Easychair. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will attend the symposium to present the work. Note also that it is insufficient for an author to register and pay for the symposium to be regarded as fulfilling this obligation. Authors of accepted papers will have to sign the ACM rights management form to comply with publication in the ACM digital library. For more information see the ACM authors page.
To encourage participation by industry and to provide a place for work of a more speculative nature, ADCS invites submissions for short papers, up to a maximum of four pages (around 2000 words). A typical proposal might describe a leading-edge solution to a practical problem in document management or search. Short papers follow the same format as for full papers.
Full and short papers are to be submitting using easychair using the URL: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=adcs2016.
Please use the Latex or Word template files which are available on the ACM templates page.
All long and short paper submissions must be original work, not previously published elsewhere, and not currently submitted to any other conference or journal.
All long and short paper submissions must be anonymised for the reviewing process. Failing to do that, will mean a rejection without a review. To make your submission anoynymised you should NOT include: author names or institutuin details, author contact details, acknowledgements, ethics approval statements that include your institutions name or details, and self-citations (e.g., in our previous work [citation]).
Submissions that differ markedly in length or style from these guidelines risk being rejected without further consideration.
Format of the abstracts is the same as long and short papers. However, these submissions should not be anonymised. If they are already published elsewhere, you need to acknowledge the orginial publication in your references.
Authors must follow ACM guidlines for preparation of their camera ready paper. The ISBN number assigned to ADCS '16 is 978-1-4503-4865-2. Authors MUST add the correct ACM rights management text to their paper. ACM provide the rights statement to authors after they complete their form.
In your final version, please include author names in full in the paper. Also, include authors affiliations and email addresses.
Full papers must be a maximum of 8 pages and short papers a maximum of 4 papges in ACM format.
Posters should be A0 (portrait orientation only) or A1 (portrait or landscape) size. Please note that there are no poster printing facilities at the conference venue.
