  • WVC 2014 reviewing is double blind, in that authors do not know the names of the area chair/reviewers of their papers, and area chairs/reviewers do not know the names of the authors.
  • Avoid providing information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs).
  • Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors. Violation of any of these guidelines will lead to rejection without review.
  • By submitting a manuscript to WVC 2014, the authors guarantee that it has not been previously published (or accepted for publication) in substantially similar form.
  • It is the authors' responsibility to ensure that all authors on their paper have registered their conflicts into JEMS website. Conflicts are needed to resolve assignments to both reviewers and area chairs.
