THE REVIEW PROCESS
All submitted papers are checked by the editors to ensure compliance with the conference’s ethical policies and requirements. The editors decide which papers to publish and are guided by the conference editorial team’s policies and legal requirements such as copyright infringement and plagiarism. Papers that do not follow the ethical policy or conference requirements are rejected before the peer-review process. If a manuscript passes the editorial checks, it is assigned to an independent expert for a double-blind peer review. Reviewers should be objective and have no conflict of interest. They should also point out relevant published work that is not yet cited. Reviewers are asked to evaluate the paper and they may recommend to: (i) accept the paper in the current form, (ii) accept the paper with minor correction, (iii) accept the paper only after corrections and repeated review, and (iv) reject the paper because the scientific content does not correspond to the conference standards. The corresponding author receives the final decision and any recommendations made by the reviewers. The editors and reviewers evaluate the manuscript based only on its importance, originality, clarity, and relevance to the aim of the conference, without considering the authors’ race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy.
