Furthermore, avoid phrases such as “we previously proposed…” or “our previous work…” that may identify the authors, remove information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgements, avoid providing links to websites that may identify authors, and if supplying any supplemental material, avoid including information that may identify the authors.

All submissions will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to the conference, contributions, and readability.
