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 two reviews. Based on reviewers' recommendations, the program co-chairs 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. It also allows submissions by program and general chairs. 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. If a paper was co-authored by one of the chairs, the two other chairs will handle that paper. Details of the review process and acceptance decisions will be recorded and kept confidentially to allow auditing and maximize fairness.
