LaTeX Collaborative Authoring Tool on Overleaf Platform

ACM has partnered with Overleaf, a free cloud-based, collaborative authoring tool, to provide an ACM LaTeX authoring template.

  • Overleaf is a collaborative platform: Authors can easily invite colleagues to collaborate on their document. 
  • Authors can write using 'Rich Text mode' or regular 'Source Mode.' This is useful for cross-disciplinary collaboration in the cases where some authors prefer to write in LaTeX while others might prefer a word processing format. 
  • The platform automatically compiles the document while an author writes, so the author can see what the finished file will look like in real time.  
  • The template allows authors to easily extract manuscripts from the Overleaf platform. (Please note that there is no direct link from Overleaf to TAPS gateway--authors must still retrieve their files from Overleaf and prepare the ZIP file for delivery to TAPS.)

The ACM LaTeX template on the Overleaf platform is available to all ACM authors. Authors should contact OverLeaf support at support@overleaf.com should they have any problems with the platform.
