The “order” file determines the program, the order of the papers in the proceedings, and the paper IDs. In principle, the order file is prepared and input by program chairs or book chairs. However, you have to keep an eye on the well-formedness of their order file, and ask program/book chairs to fix it if necessary. It is a good idea to let program/book chairs to read this page before they make their order files (in particular “Style guideline”).
The order file affects the followings:
You can input the order file in “ACLPUB > Order”. Three methods are available:
* Monday, June 23, 2014 + 7:30--18:00 Registration + 7:30--9:00 Breakfast + 8:55--9:00 Opening session + 9:00--9:40 President talk + 9:40--10:10 Coffee break = Session 1A: Discourse, Dialogue, Coreference and Pragmatics 111 10:10--10:35 # Paper title 1... 222 10:35--11:00 # Paper title 2...
The basic guideline is described in START, but you also need to conform to the following guidelines, so that the tools to generate the conference handbook work correctly. Most of the guidelines described here are automatically followed when you use Schedule Maker rather than directly editing the order file.
The following guideline is a summary of the guideline described in ACLPUB HOWTO. For details, see the original page.
