The review process requires the anonymity of authors and reviewers.

  • Papers should not have any indication of who the authors are in the text or the metadata for the file.

  • Please remove names and affiliations from the opening header and remove any indication of your affiliation or location in the text (e.g. names of laboratories where studies were conducted).

  • Avoid obvious identifying statements in the paper.

  • Citations to your own relevant work should not be anonymous, but rather should be done without identifying yourself as the author. For example, say “Prior work by [authors]” instead of “In our prior work.” Make sure that you are also not identified in the metadata of the file.

Papers which are not anonymized may not be accepted.
