Submission instructions / author’s paper kit

Prospective authors are invited to submit an electronic version of full papers, in PDF format, up to six printed pages in length (double column ACM conference format) at the PV 2018 Web site.

PV 2018 adopted an “almost double-open” review process:

  • The author names and affiliations will be visible to the reviewers.
  • A meta reviewer will be assigned to each submission among the TPC members who will have reviewed the submission, and her/his identity will be conveyed to the author(s) during the notification. 
  • There will not be a rebuttal phase.

The authors are also encouraged to regularly check the PV 2018 Web site for the latest information and updates. The proceedings will be published by ACM Digital Library.
