For Authors

  • All conference submissions will be double-blind and peer-to-peer reviewed.

    Reviewing for the Conf-IRM 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 the acknowledgments and names or affiliations of the authors. The references should include all published literature relevant to the paper, including previous works of the authors, but should not include unpublished works.

    When referring to one's own work, use the third person, rather than the first person. For example, say "Previously, Newell (1996) has shown that...," rather than "In our previous work (Newell 1996) we have shown that...." Try to avoid including any information in the body of the paper or references that would identify the authors or their institutions. Such information may be added to the final camera-ready version for publication.
