Conference tracks and topics

To facilitate quality reviewing, and to assign reviewers, authors will be required to select one main track for each submission. It is important for authors to carefully select the track as it will have an impact on how the submission is evaluated and which reviewers are assigned. While author will suggest a primary track, the scientific chair may move the paper to a different track to improve fit.

Papers may have overlap between tracks; thereby, authors are encouraged to consider the main contribution of the work using this brief rule of thumb:
