Paper Selection: Papers will undergo a double-blind peer review process. The Selected Paper Review Committee will prioritize paper acceptance based upon a rank order of scores from review rubric. The final decision to accept or reject a paper will be made by the Selected Paper Review Committee Chairs. Notification of paper acceptance will take place mid-March 2024. Authors and co-authors who withdraw or do not present accepted selected papers, except for unavoidable emergencies, will be tracked and this information may be used as part of the selection criteria for next year.
