Please use the ACM SIGCHI Conferences Submission System (PCS) to submit your work:
All accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library in the VRST collection.
Paper submissions (applied for Full papers and Short Papers) should be anonymous for a double-blind review process. By contrast, Poster and Demo submissions do NOT have to be anonymous, and these submissions will be juried by committee members and receive light feedback (up to a few paragraphs in length). All submissions should be prepared in **a single column format**, using the Word or LaTeX templates from the official ACM Master article template packages and TAPS (see https://authors.acm.org/proceedings/production-information/taps-production-workflow). Authors should prepare their materials using numbered citations and references. See the TAPS webpage for guidance on how content length corresponds to the page limits for the final version.
- Full paper: Up to a maximum of 9 pages double column excluding references.
- Short paper: Up to a maximum of 4 pages excluding references.
- Poster / Demo: Up to a maximum of 2 pages double column including references.
