Double Blind Review
ICDSC reviewing is double blind. Do not include any author information such as name and affiliations in the paper. When citing your previous work avoid using words such as “my” or “our”. Avoid providing information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs) and in the supplemental material (e.g., titles in the movies, or attached papers). Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors. Violation of any of these guidelines may lead to rejection without a review.
The papers should provide sufficient background information including adequate references and clearly indicate the original contribution.
