Submission Guidelines for Final Papers and Posters
Templates and Submission Instructions for E-Proceedings 2017
As announced earlier, final paper and poster manuscripts must be submitted using one of the template formats provided here as follows. Formal papers describing workshops should adhere to the rules applicable for final papers connected to talks.
TC39 provides this description in the form of Microsoft Word templates, OpenOffice/LibreOffice templates as well as in LaTeX2e format, along with the LaTeX2e style file used to format it (tc39.sty) and an ACL bibliography style (acl.bst).
For each of these three formats, we provide both a zipped package (containing a document that explains the formatting rules while itself conforming to them, an actual template file, and the respective output of the sample, as a pdf file. For Word, both docx (Word 2007 and newer) and doc (Word 97-2003) samples and templates are included.
We strongly recommend the use of these style templates, appropriately tailored for the TC39 proceedings.
