Blind Review Process
SIBCON will utilize a blind review process. Submitted papers (for both regular and special sessions) are subject to a blind reviewed process handled by an international technical program committee. It creates anonymity for both authors and reviewers. Reviewers will not be apprised of the authors' names or institutions in the submitted manuscript; such information will be deleted from manuscript before submission. The blind review process is adopted in majority IEEE conferences.
A blind review process greatly assists in the elimination of any perception of bias for or against an author or institution
based on "name" recognition, country, gender, etc. This helps assure authors that:
- submitted papers are judged equally;
- submitted papers are judged and not the author(s) and/or their affiliation(s)
Deadline for paper submission is December 4, 2020
