The Review Committee oversees the peer-review process, which includes matching reviewer’s expertise with that of the submission.
Authors will select 2 topics as well as three ranked keywords to their submission, in order to facilitate the matching process. All submissions will receive a two-stage peer-review process, with abstracts (for papers and projects) submitted first and then, for authors whose abstracts are accepted, full papers or projects second. Both stages will feature double-blind peer review by at least three reviewers and provide constructive comments that advance the effort and improve the review experience for both reviewers and reviewees.
Final acceptance of the full paper or full project translates to presentation at the conference and inclusion in the Proceedings. Sessions will be composed of both papers and projects, when possible, allowing for both scholarly and applied research to mutually demonstrate impact.
