    1. CCS Concepts: Check that CCS Concepts are formatted correctly using the ACM CCS assignment tool available at:
    2. Quotation marks: Use double quotes throughout for quotes or when introducing a new term for the first time. Use single quotes within double quotes. E.g. Author X explains, “Social media is ‘changing’ society” [15].
    3. References: Only include references that are cited in the paper.
    4. In-text citations: add a space between multiple sources. E.g. Use [34, 45, 87] instead of [34,45,87].
