On The Reviewing Process
In order to ensure the quality of the published papers at the conference, all the submitted papers are evaluated according to the following criteria:
appropriateness of topic
readability and paper organization
Since ISMIR2008, ISMIR reviews are double blind; that is, authors and reviewers will be anonymous to each other. To ensure this please keep the author list "from" appearing in the text and avoid excessive reference to your own work.
The reviewing workflow follows a two-tier model, i.e. with one level of "regular" reviewers, and another level of "meta-reviewers". All the papers are examined by, at least, three reviewers.
