Author Information

Acceptance/rejection notices for all submissions were sent on January 27th. We had a record number of submissions to ACC this year, and the decision process was very difficult. Authors of submitted papers can access reviewers' comments and the associate editor's summary through PaperPlaza and selecting the workspace for this paper. Authors are requested to take into account the comments of the reviewers and associate editor's summary when preparing their final manuscripts. Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the ACC and present their work. If for any reason none of the authors of an accepted paper will be able to attend the conference, the program chair should be contacted as soon as possible so that the paper can be withdrawn.

Final papers must be submitted through PaperPlaza by the final submission deadline of March 15. All necessary instructions are posted on the submission page. At the time of final submission authors should also make any required changes to the abstract, the author list (including author affiliations), and the title of the paper. This information will be used as-is for the final program and book of abstracts, so please be certain to check these entries carefully; they must correspond with the final submitted version of the paper.

The final program can be found at:

Best Presentation in Session Awards

Follow the links to find which presentation in each session was selected to receive the best presentation in session award. If no presentation is listed for a session, that means that one was not chosen by the session chair/co-chair. Congratulations to the outstanding presenters!

Support for Authors

Author's Kits with style (.cls) files for LaTeX and templates (.dot) for MS-Word are available from the conference submission site. Go to the PaperPlaza website and select "Support" for these files and example files, or directly go to support page.
