Submission and review policy

Submitted papers will be blind-reviewed by members of the program committee. It is planned for each paper to have at least three reviews. Based on reviewers' recommendations, the program chair and the general chair will make the final decision on acceptance and notify the contact author. Please note that HVC allows submissions by program committee members and members of the organizing committee. To guarantee fairness of the review process in such cases, organizers who are authors of submitted papers will be excluded from the review and the decision process regarding their papers. Other organizers will be appointed to handle their papers. The review process will be managed through the EasyChair conference management system.
