When sending the final copy, please:
- Do not use staples, paper clips, or anything that will bend, fold,
punch holes through or leave marks on the paper; remember that your copy will
be reproduced directly, and a dirty original makes a dirty copy.
(I am aghast at how often we get bent, stapled or folded "camera-ready" papers.)
- Do not include page numbers on the paper; page numbers will be added
by the printer.
- Do not write anything on the front that you do not want reproduced.
- DO write lightly on the back of each sheet, in blue pencil
(NOT INK), the first author's last name and the page number.
If you do not have a blue pencil, use a black pencil, but write in a corner
on the back.
- Send two copies of the paper; we'll choose the best looking one.
- Remember to leave space on the first page for the
ACM Copyright notice.

acmproc.sty and a newer
style files (acmconf.cls for latex2e)

Simon L. Peyton Jones, John Hughes, and John Launchbury,
in the November 1993 ACM SIGPLAN Notices (Volume 28, Number 11, pages 9-12),
for some suggestions about giving a good talk;
you may not agree with all their points (few readers do), but they have
many good ideas for making your presentation more interesting and successful.
