I've wasted about an hour trying to figure out how I'm supposed to categorise an ACM article using the new 2012 taxonomy here, and how I'm supposed to represent those categories in my article.
On the plus side, the 2012 taxonomy has some perfectly apt categories for my paper (unlike the previous 1998 version).
On the minus side, the instructions are abysmal with respect to how it should be used, it seems to be completely incompatible with the standard TeX macros provided with standard
sig-* templates, and not only do the TeX macros provided by this interactive system not work (
\ccsdesc), they don't even seem to even exist (at least Google turns up little if anything).
Is anyone actually using this new 2012 taxonomy and if so, is there any good guide on how to use it with a standard LaTeX
(Otherwise I think I'll just go back to the 1998 version ... as weird and archaic and seemingly useless as it is, at least it's a straightforward way to fill in those pointlessly mandatory category fields. Grrr.)
