In the following, you can find the information on how to properly format your final manuscript for the 14th International Workshop on Network on Chip Architectures (NoCArc'21).

  1. Please format the camera-ready paper accordingly by the ACM template.

  • Authors must create their own source files and PDFs using the ACM Interim Word or current LaTeX template.

  • Authors should apply ACM Computing Classification categories and terms. The templates provide space for this indexing and point authors to the Computing Classification Scheme.

  • The camera-ready PDF should have Type 1 fonts (scalable), not Type 3 (bit-mapped). All fonts MUST be embedded within the PDF file. A guide that explains how to embed fonts is available here.

  • The ACM Digital Library optimal distiller settings file can be downloaded here.

  • To check if all the fonts are embedded into your pdf, open the paper with Acrobat Reader and type CTRL-D.

  1. Please sign the ACM copyright form that you will receive soon by email. Please notice that there is a chance that such an email will wind up in the SPAM folder. Please make sure that you and your authors set email SPAM settings to allow emails from ""

  2. After signing the copyright form, the corresponding author will be emailed the complete rights text (bibliographic strip, ISBN, DOI, etc.) to place within your camera-ready paper. You must enter the text into their paper otherwise it cannot be included in the proceedings.

  3. Submit the camera-ready PDF file through EasyChair and a compressed archive containing the source file(s) by email to Maurizio Palesi. Please use as the subject of the email "NoCArc source files paper no. x" where x is your paper ID.

The camera-ready version is due by October 11, 2021 (electronic submission via the EasyChair platform.)


Both research and application-oriented papers are welcome. All papers should be submitted electronically by EasyChair. Papers must be in PDF format and should include title, authors and affiliation, e-mail address of the contact author.

Papers must be formatted in accordance with the ACM two-column style. ACM Word or LaTeX style templates are available here. In addition, the Authors should apply ACM Computing Classification categories and terms.

Submissions must be limited to 6 pages. Papers deviating significantly from these paper size and formatting rules may be rejected without review. If the authors wish a blind review to be performed, then the author's name and affiliation should be omitted in the submitted paper. In case of any questions please contact the workshop organizers.


Please, remember to register for the MICRO-54 Symposium to attend the Workshop.
