Review

As with past ICSCRM meetings, all manuscripts will be blind peer reviewed by referees (primarily other ICSCRM 2017 attendees) selected by the Technical Proceedings editorial team. Initial peer review assignments will be made prior to the conference, as the conference organizers wish to encourage referees to personally attend presentations for manuscripts they have been asked to review. 

A cycle of editorial review with opportunity for authors to revise manuscripts to address review comments will follow. All authors and reviewers are asked to please be prompt and respect deadlines in order to facilitate timely publication of the ICSCRM 2017 Technical Proceedings.

Deadline

The deadline for initial manuscript submissions, including manuscripts associated with Late News abstracts, is September 4, 2017.
