ACM SIGCOMM 2015 LaTeX template not Compiling

I downloaded the ACM Sigcomm 2015 template but its not compiling and giving me hundreds of errors. Kindly help me. Here is the template link: http://conferences.sigcomm.org/sigcomm/2015/doc/sig-alternate-10pt.cls

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – karlkoeller Dec 30 '14 at 12:20

The reason is that this template is a CLASS file *.cls so you need to add it in your *.tex document as:

\documentclass[conference]{sig-alternate}


where sig-alternate is the required *.cls file that needs to be in the working directory of your project. You can create this class file sig-alternate.cls by copying the code from the link: http://conferences.sigcomm.org/sigcomm/2015/doc/sig-alternate-10pt.cls and pasting it in any text editor and saving it as *.cls. I hope you got my point.
