This year we plan to implement some changes, which include a double-blind review process, an opportunity for authors to respond to the reviewers’ comments, and journal paper presentations (see below).
In a double-blind review process, authors should not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers should not know the names of the authors. Please prepare your paper in a way that preserves the anonymity of the authors.
- Do not put the authors’ names or affiliations under the title.
- Avoid using phrases such as “our previous work” when referring to earlier publications by the authors.
- Remove information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grants).
- Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.
Full papers must describe substantial, original, completed, and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete and thorough evaluation and analysis should be included. Full papers may consist of up to six (6) pages of content.
Submissions will be judged on suitability, originality, significance, correctness, validation, thoroughness, replicability, and clarity. Each submission will be reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. A rebuttal period will allow authors to respond to the reviewers’ comments. Final versions of accepted papers must take into account reviewers’ comments.
Full papers may be presented orally or as posters, as determined by the program committee. Decisions on presentation format will be based on the nature rather than the quality of the work. There will be no distinction in the proceedings between full papers presented orally and as posters.
Short papers must describe original and unpublished work. They are likely to present a smaller and more focused contribution than full papers that can benefit from the feedback that early exposure can provide. Short papers may consist of up to two (2) pages of content.
Submissions will be judged on suitability, originality, soundness, and clarity. Each submission will be reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. A rebuttal period will allow authors to respond to the reviewers’ comments. Final versions of accepted papers must take into account reviewers’ comments.
Short papers will be presented as posters. They will be electronically archived as part of the workshop proceedings and are fully citable publications.
The following examples may be helpful in understanding what type of papers could be suitable for a short paper submission:
- Work-in-progress or late-breaking results.
- A counter-example to an existing technique that helps to understand its limitations.
- A new methodology that has demonstrable benefits, without extensive evaluation.
- Extensions or evaluations of existing methods.
- An opinion piece.
- An interesting application nugget.
Authors of recent journal papers will be given the opportunity to present an overview poster at the workshop to showcase their work. Eligible journal papers must have been published or accepted since January 2013. Submissions will be judged on suitability and significance by the Technical Program Chairs. These submissions will not be re-published in the workshop proceedings.

By submitting a manuscript, the authors guarantee that it is not previously published or under review elsewhere in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of the submission should be submitted during the review period to either a journal or a conference. If there are papers that may appear to violate any of these conditions, then it is the authors’ responsibility to (a) cite these papers (preserving anonymity), (b) argue in the body of your paper why your paper is nontrivially different from these concurrent submissions, and (c) include anonymized versions of those papers with the submission.
