Review Process

  • Paper reviews:
    • The review process was supported by easychair.
    • After submission, PC members indentified their conflicts of interest (after which, PC members were blocked from viewing papers and reviews for which they were conflicted).
    • PC members then bidded on their preferred papers.
    • Papers were allocated according to those bids. PC members were given one month to review 5 to 8 papers.
    • Reviews were collected. Each paper was scored 2,1,-1,-2 for "accept!", "accept?", "reject?", or "reject!".
    • As soon as a paper had 2 or more reviews, the PC chair checked for contradictory reviews. If any where found, an on-line discussion was initiated between reviewers to resolve the contradictions.
    • At the end of the review period, the PC chair accepted or rejected papers based on the reviews and subsequent discussions.
    • Reviews and notifications were sent to authors (with no reviewer identified).
  • Best paper review:
    • Based on paper review scores, the PC chair passed three candidates to the PROMISE steering committee.
    • All steering committee members with conflicts with those papers recused themselves from the deliberations.
    • The remaining committee members selected the best paper.
