Submission guidelines

The paper format conforms roughly to an ICMI long paper submission:
The allowed length is between 4 and 8 pages (including the references). Accepted papers will be presented as a talk of about 15 minutes with 10 minutes of discussion. Submitted papers should conform to the ACM publication format. ACM Categories and Subject Descriptors section and Author Keywords are mandatory to be included on the first page for your final version. The results described in the submission must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. For templates and examples follow this link:


The reviewing will be double blind, so submissions should be anonymous. Omit references only if it would be obviously identifying the authors. As opposed to the ICMI 2016 main conference, there will be no rebuttal phase.
