Double-Blind Peer Review Guidelines
The paper selection will follow a double-blind review process, meaning that both the authors and reviewers will remain anonymous during the paper selection process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity. That is all authors MUST eliminate names, contact information, and affiliations from the entire manuscript. Moreover, take caution in citing your prior works and avoid acknowledgement of funding sources.

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceeding by IEEE, and will be included in the IEEE Xplore.
