  • A clear description of the problem being addressed and what makes that problem interesting and relevant such that it warrants scientific research.
  • A brief description of what others have been doing in the field.
  • A hint of a possible solution and the path chosen how to get to that solution (i.e., the chosen research methodology).
  • Submitted abstracts are required to adhere to the two column “sigconf” ACM conference proceeding style. Templates and examples in LaTeX and various versions of Microsoft Word are available for download from the 2017 ACM Master Article Template page. The abstracts can be submitted Via EasyChair (PDF files only).
