Preparation of Proceedings for Publication

The Publications Chair is responsible for working with the Program, Workshop, Student, and Tutorial Chairs to prepare the proceedings and ensure their timely delivery and printing. Jason Eisner and Philipp Koehn have constructed a repository for software for compiling the various conference publications. The publications chair is responsible for revising/updating this software as appropriate and providing updated documentation that will enable subsequent publications chairs to easily use the repository.

  • The respository contains scripts and style files, along with associated documentation.
  • The repository also contains instructions for (1) book chairs, and (2) authors. At the current time, information needed by the publication chairs is contained in the instructions for book chairs. Eventually, a separate set of instructions for publications chairs will be compiled. Further information about the organization of the repository can be found in overview of repository organization
  • The concept behind the repository is that it provides an easy mechanism for the publications chairs to access and revise the necessary software; keeping the documentation and instructions in the repository makes it easy to maintain consistency.
  • Instructions on how to access the repository provides information about getting a username and password for entering the repository.
