Review Process

Each paper will be reviewed by at least three regular PC members and one or two senior PC members and is single-blind (that is, the identity of authors is known to the reviewers). Decisions will take into account novelty, technical depth, elegance, practical application, impact, and presentation. For some papers, the PC may ask for clarifications from the authors during an author feedback phase.
