On the reviewing process:

To ensure a high quality of the contributions, all papers will go through a single-blind selection process according to a set of criteria, among which the following:

  • Novelty of the paper
  • Scholarly/scientific quality
  • Appropriateness of topic
  • Importance
  • Fostering cross-area fertilization
  • Fostering reproducibility of research
  • Paper organization
  • Readability
  • Contribution to the overall balance of topics at ISAP 2015

Each paper will be classified as “non-accepted”, “accepted” or “conditionally accepted”.

The authors of “accepted papers” will be invited to submit a revised version taking in account the reviewers’ comments at their will. “Conditionally accepted” papers that do not take reviewers’ comments into account will be rejected.

With the reviewing process, the accepted papers will be designated (by the appropriate Committees and Programme Chair) either as suitable for oral presentation of paper forum sessions. All accepted papers have the same status – the assignment to either type of session is not indicative of the relevance or potential impact but depends on the type of content and the way to better reach the intended audience.
