I need some urgent help please. I am a novice with LaTex and Overleaf.
Would any one of you know how to use the ACM conference template from Overleaf ? I am using it for the first time and for my first conference paper, so any pointers will be useful.
My main query is do I directly start editing the acm conference template that appears on my Overleaf account after I sign in ? Or do I have to follow some steps to edit it ?
Thanks in advance

Recently I have recieved few emails from conference organisers to become a member of conference technical program committee. Three of them are international conferences and going to held in China and Thailand.
I am a fresh PhD is it good to participate in low quality conferences as TPC member?
it will have a positive or negative impact in my resume?

Simple question:

Suppose you have a joint work with another guy, and both of you agree that it is truly joint (i.e. both of you believe and agree there has been equally fundamental ideas for the papers from both sides, and also that there has been equal effort in realizing the project)

Now the guy does a presentation at a conference where in the abstract of the presentation he does not mention your name by the ritual ”this is joint work with…”. The organizer of the seminar is aware that it is joint and the abstract get modified after few days with your name.

Later on after few months, at another, way bigger conference, the guy does precisely the same thing (no mention to your name in the abstract), and there that is how the abstract passes.

My question: Is this considered an unethical behavior? In my position, would be the right thing to do to mail the coauthor to tell him that what he did is not acceptable?

Why do I find this puzzling: on one hand it just bothers me to see that someone who is presenting a work where I gave key ideas does not mention me at all in the abstract, since it feels wrong and pushy in a nasty sense. On the other I have the doubt that I might be over-reacting and that the etiquette does not banish such a behavior.

Fields of studies: math.

Edit: to make clearer the spirit of the question, from a comment below. In the top paragraph I mean that the two of us had a conversation and we agreed that the contribution to the paper in terms of ideas and practical effort in realizing the project is divided in equal parts. But then, asymmetrically, my name disappears when he gives talks on it. Therefore I cannot conclude that he does it because he believes that he has done more. So two options are left:
1) It is not part of the etiquette to write your co-author name in abstract of talks, so he just did not bother.
2) It is, but he did not do it because he wants to get more credit from people just looking at abstracts (is a big conference).
So a positive answer to 1) would make not necessary the conclusion 2), which would be a relief, since 2) feels really nasty.

p.p.s: observe that the option 3) that one does not know that it is etiquette is excluded by the fact that many people actually write it in the abstract, the guy is aware of it, and therefore in the doubt it would be more convenient to choose the option without negative consequences. Therefore the omission can be only justified by the knowledge that it is not etiquette, that is 1).

One of my manuscripts was prepared for submission to a CORE-A conference in Computer Science. There are only 2 days due for submission of the paper. As usual, I usually get my paper reviewed by one of my colleagues. However, I was surprised by his remark that the manuscript looks like a complete paper and should be submitted to a journal instead.

This is creating a mood switch in me as I am highly confused whether should I submit to the conference or a journal suggested by him. I already have one paper submitted to the conference along with my students which should not influence this submission (as per answer here). Moreover, I am not interested in working on the extension of the presently prepared work (so this question does not come into the situation). So, I just want to get my work published somewhere in a good venue.

Is it common in research dissemination? How should I decide on the possible venue given such a short deadline of 2 days?

I have written a paper jointly with my supervisor. He will be presenting our research as a part of a keynote lecture on an international conference. The lecture is in his name, but a part of that lecture has to do with my research. In fact, he will mention my name on one of the slide as an acknowledgement of my contribution. I am in need of items on my CV for upcoming funding applications and I am wondering if I should include this lecture on my CV? If yes, how can I list this item on my CV?

I am a final year Ph.D. student. I work in the area of Applied Data Mining and Visualization. I have published at both KDD and IEEE VIS. I primarily work in the area of Natural Language Processing, Social Media Analysis, Information Extraction and Data Visualization.

However, I have still not received any opportunity to review papers.

As per the suggestions on other questions on this forum (How to become a reviewer for an engineering journal?, How do you earn opportunites to review journals or conference papers?, How to show interest to serve as a TPC or reviewer in top conferences?, etc) there are two ways I could get an opportunity to review papers:

  1. Publish papers (I have published three papers at KDD, 1 as first author and 2 as co-author but have not yet received an invitation)
  2. Contact the Chairs and volunteer to be a reviewer

Question: Since I have still not received an invitation to review, is it OK to contact the chair or PC and volunteer to be a reviewer? Do you as a chair, frown upon such emails?

Note: This question is specifically for people who has served as PC / Chair for one of the top Data Science and/or Data Visualization conferences (or workshop) like KDD, ICML, ICDM, PKDD, CIKM, WSDM, IEEE VIS, CHI, etc.

In my current place of work, we are organizing a conference, and we would like it to have continuity over time. Because we are a young career in CS and this is our first congress we are having troubles to find keynote speakers and professors that would like to be in charge of the different tracks of the conference. Our university has agreed that they will pay the charges of the speakers related to plane tickets and accommodation if it applies. I would like to start sending invitations, and the question is what to put on them to increase the possibility of having a positive answer from them?
Thanks
