Policy on Withdrawal of a Work from the ACM Digital Library



5/21/2009

Once a work has appeared in the ACM Digital Library, it may be withdrawn

  • In certain cases of plagiarism. Full Text will be suppressed. The citation will remain as a permanent part of the Table of Contents and a notice of plagiarism will be displayed on that citation.
  • In cases where an article has been accepted for a conference or workshop and the author has failed to present it, provided that the Call for Papers has stipulated that publication in the proceedings in the Digital Library requires presentation at the event. The Program Chair must inform the Director of Publications within two weeks of the final day of the conference. All trace of the work will be erased from the Digital Library. Full text will be withdrawn. The citation will be purged from the Table of Contents. Program Chairs may make exceptions based on mitigating circumstances.
