Qualifications & Reviewer Selection
- Peer reviewers are selected from a list of qualified volunteers from industry or academia and from a list of qualified authors.
- Volunteer reviewers with the appropriate credentials, skills, and expertise are considered to review appropriately fitting assignments.
- Authors whose submissions have qualified to enter the peer review process also qualify to be selected as reviewers for other papers.
- Reviewers are assigned on the basis of subject matter and disciplinary expertise.
- Reviewers must not be students of any institution/university (Undergraduates or Postgraduates).
Reviewing is done online through the EasyChair conference paper submission system. Reviewers are assigned up to 3 papers. All reviewers will be guided and given further instructions by the respective Track Chairs on the process. We have Eight Tracks as highlighted below:
