Ensuring a Blind Review


To ensure the integrity of the blind peer-review for submission to this conference, every effort should be made to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other. The authors of the document shall delete their names from the text, with "Authors, year" used in the references and footnotes, instead of the "authors' names, article title, etc." With PDFs, the authors' names should also be removed from document properties found under file on adobe acrobat's main menu.
