This is a firm deadline; the production schedule for this publication is very tight. We have already removed all the margins from the production schedule. So please make sure your papers arrive in time!! To expedite the efficient delivery of your paper, please use Federal Express or a similar overnight courier service if at all possible.
Once the paper has been submitted for delivery to the courier service, please e-mail the name of the courier service, the waybill number and expected date of delivery to Stephen Spencer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All material used by the author in their accepted paper must have proper copyright clearance. If you are unsure of the copyright status of particular images used in your paper, please contact the ACM SIGGRAPH Director for Publications.
If your standard paper size is A4, please format your document to the above margin specifications, making certain the columns are no longer than 9.25 in (23.495 cm) and trim the pages to 8.5 by 11.0 inches.
Your paper should have a 1.5 in (3.81 cm) space left blank at the bottom of the left column on the first page of the paper for the ACM copyright statement.

The Workshop on Graphics Hardware papers committee may have allowed you to submit a paper with a page count different than this. If you feel you need more room than has been allotted to you, please obtain permission from the papers committee.
DO NOT USE PAGE NUMBERS ON THE PAPER - the papers will be collected as part of the conference or workshop proceedings and will be numbered at press time. It is important that the author write their name and the ordering - Smith, page 1 of 8 for example - on the reverse of each page of the camera-ready copy sent in. This will help ensure the proper pagination and printing of the paper.
The title of the paper should be formatted with initial caps, for example: "Weaving Threads For The Web".
Section headings should be numbered for ease of internal referencing.
Body text should be set in a serif typeface such as Times, and should be 9-point text on 10-point leading (space between lines). Heading text should be set in a sans serif typeface such as Helvetica, with the following specifications:
Images and Figures
It is very important that you provide us with the highest possible quality illustrations. This will ensure that the illustrations will reproduce as well as possible. Photographic prints are highly recommended, especially for color illustrations (see below). Prints from dye-sublimation are also recommended, but photographic prints are preferred over dye-sublimation prints. Color PostScript prints, thermal wax prints, and ink-jet prints are other accepted formats, though these will suffer image degradation in the production process, and are not recommended. Similarly, low-resolution images and figures (below 300 dpi) will not reproduce well, and are not recommended. Polaroid prints are not recommended. Glossy prints are recommended over matte-finish prints.
The captions for all illustrations should be printed on a black and white laser printer. Captions printed on a dye-sublimation device with images or figures will degrade significantly in the production process.
For archival purposes of accepted papers, authors can submit a video clip electronically which will be put on the Hardware Workshop web page. Videos can be submitted in any (or all) of the following formats, depending on what makes the best technical fit for the material:
Submission instructions for electronic videos are in preparation.
Authors who use TeX or LaTeX to prepare their documents may wish to use the "siggraph" LaTeX class or the "acmconf.sty" (for LaTeX 2.09). Bibliographies should be formatted with the "plain" BibTeX bibliography style. These files are available to download through the SIGGRAPH Web site
