Review Process

To fairly handle the wide variety of approaches to discuss problems and solutions in this emerging field of cyber conflicts, this conference divides all paper submissions and its presentation into three major tracks: Concepts & Strategy, Technical Challenges & Solutions, and Law & Policy .

The paper selection and review process will be the same for all submission. But the external reviewers will be selected fitting to the tracks’ field.

The initial selection will be made base on submitted 300 – 500 words abstracts.

All submitters will receive a notification about the decision of the selection committee. In case of acceptance, submitters might also expect additional remarks to sharpen the content of their paper.

In a second stage all submitted camera-ready papers will be reviewed on a fair and anonymous basis.

For each track a group of external reviewers with a sound background in the related track are selected. Coordinated by the COEs Review Process Manager all submissions will be double blind reviewed by at least two reviewers. In case of contrary reviews a third reviewer will also be included.

Based on the reviewers’ feedback the selection committee consisting of 5 persons will make the final selection for the conference. A notification about the selection committee’s decision will be sent so the submitters approximately one month after receiving the final paper.
