Early Decision for Funding Purposes

We recognize that some participants have more requirements to fulfill for traveling abroad. Although we do not recommend this process in general, the program committee will review a paper for early decision for authors who need a long lead-time to acquire a visa and/or funding. If the paper is accepted, the early decisions will guarantee listing in the conference schedule and a scheduled slot at the conference. This early review process will not provide reviewer comments to the author. 

To receive an early review, you must first complete the web submission process. Please submit a full paper. After you complete the web submission process, send a separate email message directly to the Program Chairs at [email protected] requesting an early review and decision. Your submission ID number must be included in this message. Within two to three weeks a decision will be sent to you by email. 

If your submission for early decision is rejected, you may still revise and resubmit (by the deadline for submissions) for a decision within the regular review process. 

If a full paper is provided by the deadline for submissions, the paper will go through the normal review process outlined in the Call for Papers and you will receive comments on the paper. The paper may be scheduled for Poster, Parallel, Plenary, or other presentation type based on this review. Notification of placement in the program is usually sent to authors about two months before the conference. If you prefer a Poster presentation or placement, please be sure to indicate this on the "Paper Information for Submission" page – this will not affect the review process only the scheduling process.

Early Acceptance Decisions: Program Chairs reserve the right to reverse any early acceptance decision and reject a paper if a serious issue in the paper is subsequently discovered.
