We follow a light-weight double-blind reviewing process. Thus, submitted papers must not reveal the identities of authors. However, the author names will be known to the program committee in the rebuttal phase.
Both authors and reviewers are expected to make every effort to honor the double-blind reviewing process. In case of questions, please contact the Program Chairs.
should ensure that the submission can be evaluated without it being obvious who wrote the paper. This means leaving author names off the paper and using terms like “previous research” rather than “our previous research” when describing background. However, do not hide previous work – papers must still reference all relevant research, including that by the current authors, so reviewers can identify novelty. It is important that authors specify all conflicts of interest with potential reviewers during the submission phase.
should not undertake any investigation that might lead to the revealing of authors identity. If identities are inadvertently revealed, please contact the Program Chairs.
The Program Chairs will check all submissions for obvious signs of lack of anonymity and may ask authors to make changes and resubmit the paper within four days of the submission deadline.
