    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 have 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 persons 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

    Reviewing for the ICITR Conference is blind to the identities of the authors. The first page, on which the paper body begins, should include the title, abstract, content areas, and ID number (if available), but not names or affiliations of the authors. The references should include all published literature relevant to the paper. Acknowledgments of funding or assistance should also be omitted. Submissions should not contain pointers to supplemental material on the web.

    When referring to one’s own work, use the third person, rather than the first person. For example, say “Previously, Newell (1996) showed that…,” rather than “In our previous work (Newell 1996) we showed that…” Try to avoid including any information that would identify the authors or their affiliations. Such information may be added to the final camera-ready version for publication.


    Review Process

    For papers that are accepted for review, Program Committee (PC) members will be matched to submissions based on research expertise and interest. Authors will have a limited opportunity to respond to initial reviews. This author feedback will then be taken into account in the final recommendations and reviews may be changed accordingly. Program chairs will make all final decisions during the process.


    Publication

    Accepted papers will be allocated six (6) pages in the conference proceedings; up to two (2) additional pages may be used at a cost to the authors of Rs. 2000/= per page. Final papers found to exceed page limits and or otherwise violating the instructions to authors will not be included in the proceedings. Authors will be required to transfer copyright of 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 IEEE Xplorer, ICITR Digital Library and in hard copy after the conference.
