Dual Submissions and Ethical Requirements:

By submitting a manuscript to ICCWS-2022, authors acknowledge that the paper is substantially original and the paper does not contain any plagiarism. Authors should check that no sentence is copied (if a sentence is copied, the permission from original paper and academic writing techniques should be followed). Authors can use iThenticate, Turnitin, CrossCheck, etc., for this purpose. Strict IEEE Plagiarism policy will be followed:IEEE: A Plagiarism FAQ
Authors also acknowledge that the paper (or its substantially similar content) has not been previously published in any peer-reviewed conference, workshop or journal and will neither be submitted elsewhere during the review period of ICCWS-2022.

Double blind submissions

All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are required to preserve the anonymity of your submission, while at the same time allowing the reader to fully grasp the context of related past work, including your own. Common sense and careful writing will go a long way towards preserving anonymity. Papers that do not conform to our double-blind submission policies will be rejected without review.
Minimally, please take the following steps when preparing your submission:

  • Remove the names and affiliations of authors from the title page.
  • Remove acknowledgments of identifying names and funding sources.
  • Remove project titles or names that can be used to trace back to the authors via a web search engine.
  • Use care in referring to related work, particularly your own. Reference your past work in the third person, just as you would any other piece of related work by another author. For example, instead of "In prior work [3], we presented a routing protocol that ...," sentences in the spirit of "In prior work, Smith and Clark [3] presented a routing protocol that ..." should be used.
  • The submitted manuscript or its title/abstract should not be posted on a public website, such as arxiv.org, or transmitted via public mailing lists.
  • The submitted manuscript (PDF file) should be text-searchable. Any submission that does not meet this requirement may be returned without review.
  • Remove any embedded author/affiliation information in the PDF metadata. Go to Acrobat menu File/Properties… and remove any author information there.
