All submissions must be anonymous and will be peer-reviewed by an international expert committee. The reviewing procedures is double-blind, meaning that the anonymity of authors and reviewers is preserved all along the review process. Please prepare your paper in a way that preserves anonymity of the authors:
- Do not put authors’ names under the title.
- Avoid using phrases such as “our previous work” when referring to earlier publications by the authors. However, reviewers must be able to compare your current submission to other related work in the area. We ask that if you are citing your own work, that you refer to it in the third person as opposed to removing it completely because of blind review.
- Remove information that could identify the authors in the acknowledgements.
- Avoid providing links to websites that could identify the authors.
After authors submit their paper, it will go through a rigorous review process that comprises two layers of evaluation: workshop chairs and PC members. The process is as follows:
- The chairs reserved the right to eliminate submissions that do not follow the submission instructions (format, anonymity, etc.) or that do not match any of the workshop themes.
- The workshop chair assigns each paper to at least two carefully selected international expert committee members who are a representative of the research topic of the paper. The workshop chair will have access to the authors identity through the submission website, in order to avoid conflicts of interest when assigning the paper to the international expert committee members.
- The international expert committee members will provide a review according to a set of criteria including: innovation, reference to prior work, clarity of presentation, methodological rigor, importance of contribution and relevance to the workshop.
- The workshop chair gathers all the reviews, writes a meta-review based on the reviewers’ comments in order to finalize a decision for each paper. The chair may ask further details to a reviewer in case of conflict of if the produced comments are too concise.
- Confidentiality of submissions is maintained for the international expert committee members during the review process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity.
