Paper Format Guidelines and Templates
ACM will hold the 2009 copyright for the ICCAD proceedings.
Here are ACM suggested paper tempates to assist you with your paper submission.
Please note: It is of particular importance that you leave sufficient space in the lower left corner of the first column on the first page for ACM to fill in copyright information.

NOTE - The 3 main reasons papers have to be failed are: 1) The submission (pdf file) has the author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s) listed on it. 2) The pdf file cannot be opened with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Do yourself a favor – CHECK your pdf file BEFORE submitting it. Also, be sure to embed and subset all fonts in your pdf file. 3) The paper size exceeds the 8-page limit.

Keep in mind that if your paper is accepted to be published in the ICCAD Proceedings, 4 pages are free of charge, and each page beyond 4 pages is charged $125.00 per page.

Templates are available on the IEEE website here

Note to LaTeX Users: Use Type 1 fonts ONLY – do NOT use Type 3 fonts.

The Proceedings
The 2009 ICCAD Proceedings will be published on a CD ROM. A printed version (hard copy) will not be published this year. The CD ROM will available at the conference.
