You have the option of uploading Auxiliary or Supplemental Material along with your final paper, to be archived by the ACM digital library. Such material is related to your paper, but was not itself the object of review.
Supplemental Material: ACM calls extra files to be reviewed with the submitted paper "Supplements." An example might be a proof that is too long to be included within the allotted number of pages but which is supplied as an online-only Appendix. Another example might be a program which is the actual subject matter of the paper, such as a TOMS paper and its supplemental algorithm. Supplements are an integral part of the paper and are published with it as such. Copyright Transfer of the paper applies as well to these integral Supplements. Checking Part I of the form transfers copyright on the paper and its Supplements.
Auxiliary Material: ACM calls extra files which are not reviewed as part of the submitted paper but which an author supplies as an additional resource for the reader "Auxiliary Materials." An example might be an extensive data set used in the research for the paper, or programs that were run on that data to derive the results. ACM will not take copyright to Auxiliary Material which is not reviewed and is not part of the formally published work. But ACM still needs permission from the owner to serve Auxiliary Materials and an agreement that the author is abiding by ACM terms when supplying the non-reviewed Auxiliary Material. Checking Part II of the form and saying YES to the terms grants ACM permission to serve the Auxiliary Materials.
To provide supplemental/auxiliary material:
|(a)||The authors need the permission from the chairs to include the supplemental/auxiliary material. The article and supplemental material should be reviewed for publishing in the proceedings (by the review committee). If the material being submitted for inclusion in the ACM Digital Library is not been reviewed, ACM considers the material auxiliary to the article.|
|(b)||The authors must provide a readme.txt (text) file that explains the material contained within the .zip. For example, what file types are, the software needed to view/execute the files, as well as any other relevant text/information explaining how the auxiliary/supplemental material relates to the paper.|
|(c)||The text of the readme.txt file needs to be cut and pasted into the appropriate text field on the submission page (see item #C indicated in the image below)|
|(d)||The authors must create a zip file of all relevant auxiliary/supplemental material (which also includes the readme.txt file) and submit/upload the zip on the paper's submission page. See item #D indicated in the image below.|
|(e)||The zip file must not exceed a size of 500 MB. The zip needs to be submitted to the appropriate field on the submission page at the time the final version of the paper is submitted. Please be sure your system and network settings allow the transfer of the very large zip files.|
