Author Information & Submissions
PACT 2012 submissions will be judged on originality, significance, interest, clarity, and correctness. A submission consists of an abstract and a paper formatted according to the instructions provided below. Both the abstract and the paper must be submitted electronically at the following site:
Abstract Preparation: Submit an abstract with a description (100-300 words) of the paper, and indicate the key topics of the paper.
Paper Preparation: PACT 2012 papers are limited to 10 pages in the ACM 8.5" x 11" (US letter) Double-Column Format (9.25" by 3.33" columns, 0.33" gutter) using 10pt fonts. For submission, please use the following Word template and Latex template to ensure compliance. Papers must be submitted in PDF format and must be viewable by Adobe Acrobat Reader (version 5.0 or higher). The reviewing process will be double-blind. Hence, submissions must not reveal the authors' identities, and you should refer to your own previous work in the third person. The program chairs will summarily return submissions not meeting the requirements.
