Submission Process

Full & Short Papers

ETRA 2020 uses the Precision Conference System (PCS) to handle the submission and reviewing process: https://new.precisionconference.com/user/login?society=etra. Please ensure that you are making a submission to Society=ETRA, Conference=ETRA 2020, Track={ETRA 2020 Full Papers, ETRA 2020 Short Papers, etc.}, and choose the respective track. Please create an account if you do not already have one. Edit your submission by including the required information by the respective due date(s). As long as the status of your submission is "incomplete", PCS will provide a note what information is required by what deadline.

Specific to Full Papers: Please upload a 150-maximum word abstract reflecting your expected contribution by the Paper Abstract due date (mandatory submission). Your abstract submission will allow us to prepare for the review process. An abstract is required before the actual Full Paper is submitted.

Your submissions should be prepared following the sigconf instructions. To prepare the content of the PDF file, SIGGRAPH encourages authors to use LaTeX, but a Word template is also available (https://www.acm.org/binaries/content/assets/publications/taps/acm_submission_template.docx ). Authors who choose to use Word should keep in mind (a) they must use the "sigconf" template style, and (b) they must use the "author year" citation and reference format. We advise that Word authors consult the sigconf pdf example as a formatting template. When generating the PDF file, please make sure that the fonts are embedded in the PDF file. This will ensure that reviewers can view the paper without problems. The submitted papers must be anonymized for peer review.

All paper submissions must be appropriately anonymized to conceal the authors' identities and institutions. This means that authors are expected to remove author and institutional identities from the title and header areas of the paper. Also, please make sure that identifying information does not appear in the document's meta-data (e.g., the 'Authors' field in your word processor's 'Save As' dialog box). Further suppression of identity in the body of the paper is left to the authors' discretion. We do expect that authors leave in citations to their previous work, so that reviewers can ensure that all previous research has been taken into account by the authors. Nonetheless, please avoid phrases such as "In this paper we build on top of our previous work presented in [reference]…" and, instead, use constructions such as "We extend the work presented in [reference]… ". Observe that you are allowed to extend anyone's work, and only the first phrase reveals that you are the author of the previous work.
