review: Paper submission is double-blind to reduce the reviewers’ bias
against authors or institutions. Thus, the submissions cannot include author
names or institutions. Common sense and careful writing should be used to
preserve anonymity without detracting from the submission. We recognize that
closely building on your own prior work may indirectly reveal your identity.
Please reference your own previous work in third person rather than using
first person. Do not omit references to provide anonymity, as this leaves
the reviewer unable to grasp the context. Instead, if you are extending your
own work, you need to reference and discuss the past work in third person,
as if you were extending someone else's research. We realize in doing this
that for some papers it could still be obvious who the authors are. In this
case, the submission will not be penalized as long as a concerted effort was
made to reference and describe the relationship to the prior work as if you
were extending someone else's research.
submission must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted
for publication elsewhere (including journals and formal proceedings of
conferences and workshops). See the “IEEE guidelines on multiple
submission and prior publication” for more details http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/rights/Multi_Sub_Guidelines_Intro.html
will not be allowed to submit a full paper before submitting an abstract by
the abstract deadline.
