How To Assign CCS Concepts:

  • Browse the CCS ( by clicking through the desired nodes (subject areas) or scroll through theFlat View
  • After choosing all nodes (Subject Areas) Click on "Assign This CCS Concept"" from the left menu, or on the subject itself in the Flat View, when you have reached the appropriate level of subject granularity
  • Choose the proper relevance of the chosen CCS concept (High, Medium, Low) - please choose "Low"
  • The full classification you have chosen so far will display; adjust the relevance of the current node if necessary
  • Choose [continue] to find and assign the next CCS Concept
  • Once complete, click on "Generate CCS Codes"
  • Copy and Paste the appropriately formated CCS Coding to the item you are classifying
  • Choose [done] only after you have pasted the information into the item you are classifying

Guidelines For Assigning CCS Concepts:

  • Choose as many classifications as you feel appropriate to best convey the subject areas of your item
    • The average number of classificaitons per item is three
    • It is not recommended to choose more than five
  • Each classification chosen must be assigned a relevance based on a three level scale (High 500, Medium 300, Low 100)
    • Be sure and choose at least one at the highest relevance (500)
    • It is not recommended to assign the highest relevance to more than one CCS concept

Submission Instructions

Authors should submit their papers online. We use EDAS system for managing submissions and review process. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Detailed usage instruction on EDAS can be found here. Submissions must be in Portable Document Format (.pdf). All submissions should be written in English.

Submissions must be at most 12 pages in double-column ACM format (

Please do not make changes to the standard format or modify the style files or any layout parameters. Papers must be proofread to prevent typographical errors and language mistakes in grammar, style, and spelling. Authors should pay special attention to unusual fonts, images, and figures that might create problems for reviewers. Please compare all author names in EDAS with the author list in your paper. They must be identical and in the same order.

Paper Categories:

Regular papers should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the conference. Short papers (Work-in-Progress) are an opportunity to present preliminary or interim results. Poster papers are intended for ongoing research projects, concrete realizations, or industrial applications/projects presentations.

Papers must be submitted through the EDAS Conference Management System.

To avoid last minutes network problems, authors are strongly encouraged to create their EDAS submission system user accounts (if you donít already have one) and register their submission (the paperís author(s), title and abstract) well in advance of the deadline.

The organizers regard plagiarism as a serious professional misconduct. All submissions will be screened for plagiarism and when identified, the submissions by the same author will be rejected (ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism).

Submitted papers and all their underlying research must comply with the professional standards of the discipline. Submitted papers will undergo a peer review process, coordinated by the Program Committee. Each manuscript will be reviewed by a minimum of three reviewers. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors by email. The accepted regular, work-in-progress and poster papers will be published in the conference proceedings and archived in ACM Digital Library.

To be published in the Symposium Proceedings, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full rate. Both regular and work-in-progress papers will be scheduled for oral presentation. A submission SHOULD NOT be intended to get reviews from the Program Committee for the sole purpose of improving on the quality of the paper. A submission implies that the author intends to ultimately register the paper upon a favorable response from the conference organizers. The conference doesnít encourage withdrawals after the paper is accepted
