Review process

All presentations are oral in English. Peer review is done in two stages: abstract review and full paper review. The abstract and the full paper should be written in English. Anyone wishing to make a presentation in ISARC2020 is asked to submit an abstract by 28th of February. If it is accepted, you will be asked to submit a full paper at 15th of June. If it is accepted by the Program Committee through full paper review, the presentation is finally accepted and you will be asked to submit a copyright transfer agreement form and the full paper revised according to the reviewers’ comments by 31th of August.
