NOTICE TO ALL AUTHORS: Several activities must be performed to ensure that your work is correctly represented in the conference program and proceedings. Please follow this list of steps carefully.
Electronic Submissions Only (requires Netscape or Internet Explorer 3.0 or higher):
Three submissions are necessary: one to the online database maintained by SIGCSE and two to the publisher. The publisher is to receive (1) the pdf file and (2) a copy of the actual source file. The source file is needed to allow the publisher to extract text and data to produce the metadata for ACM's Dgital Library. Paper authors must also submit a signed copyright release form. The instructions below will guide you in submitting the final copies to the online database and the publisher.
Step (1): Complete final editing of your submission according to the instructions listed above.
Step (2): Convert your paper into Adobe PDF format. Be sure to retain a copy of the source document, as well. Refer to our hints on creating PDF documents.
