Author Responsibilities

As creators of the work, authors have a number of responsibilities when submitting their paper or manuscript to ICITR. They must warrant:

  • That the papers they submit are their own original work.
  • That no portion of their paper (including, but not limited to, graphics and figures) has been previously published unless written consent from the previous publisher has been obtained prior to submission.
  • That the paper is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.
  • That the authors listed on the paper accurately reflect those who actually did the work and contributed to the paper in a meaningful way.
  • That they have identified and acknowledged all sources used in the creation of their paper or manuscript, including any graphics, images, tables, and figures, and also including any persons who do not meet the criteria for authorship.

Blind Review Instructions

Author names and their affiliations should be removed from the initial PDF file for the double blind review process. The final accepted camera-ready paper should have the author details as per the IEEE guidelines.

Review Process

The Papers will go through a thorough review process. Initial submissions with a high similarity index will be rejected without review. For papers that are accepted for review, Program Committee (PC) members will be matched to submissions based on research expertise and interest. Authors will be provided with a brief time window to address the initial review comments. The revised manuscript submitted by the authors will then be taken into account in the final recommendations, and reviews may be changed accordingly. The final decisions will be made by the program chairs.


Authors will be required to transfer the copyright to their paper to ICITR. Accepted papers will be available via the online schedule at the conference. The published archival versions of the papers will be made available in the ICITR Digital Library and in Google Scholar after the conference. At least one author of each accepted submission must present the paper at the conference. We encourage all authors to attend if possible.
