Call for Papers

The ICCAD review process is both blind and confidential. Reviewers do not know the names of the authors, and reviewers must maintain confidentiality as proscribed by the IEEE, which states in IEEE Policie 10.1.13

10.1.13 Confidentiality
IEEE policy requires that conferences maintain confidentially in handling submitted papers. Therefore a conference committee should treat the contents of submitted papers/abstracts as privileged information and should not disclose this information to others not involved in the review process prior to the presentation or publication. The conference committee shall ensure that referees are aware of this policy. It is expected that anyone with access to a paper under review will not make inappropriate use of the special knowledge which that access provides.
