Peer Review at the ISC - Terms and Conditions

All authors are offered the opportunity of  an optional peer review of their paper. This guarantees that these examined papers meet high scientific requirements and may receive their respective appreciation for research projects or doctoral theses.
The reviewed papers will be marked with the label „Reviewed“ in the conference proceedings.

A paper registered for the review process will be independently reviewed by two specialized experts (one from industry,  one from academia). This scientific panel consists of the members of the programme committee as well as other experts from industry and academia. After this initial evaluation, the authors have the opportunity, if necessary, to revise their paper with the required changes and submit it again. If  the reviewers accept the changes – with the request for further minor corrections if necessary – the paper will be accepted as „Reviewed“ for the conference proceedings (see flow chart for review procedure).
