This conference uses double-blind review to make it an impartial process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity. To assist this, the key items that need to be observed are as follows:

  • Remove names and affiliations under the title within the manuscript. May be added for the submission of camera-ready paper.
  • Remove references to funding sources.
  • Do not include acknowledgments.
  • Name your files with care and ensure document properties are also anonymized.
  • Use the third person to refer to work that authors have previously undertaken, e.g. replace any phrases like "as we have shown before" with " has been shown before [ref]”

Once accepted, a short summary of the paper is to be uploaded along with the camera-ready version in order to compile the conference digest. Also, all source files (LaTeX files with all the associated style files, special fonts and eps files, or Word or rtf files) and the final pdfs of all of the papers should be submitted. Further details about the same will be intimated on due course of the review process.

Figures and Tables

Ensure that the figures and tables are legible. Please also ensure that you refer to your figures in the main text. The proceedings will be printed in gray-scale, and many reviewers print the papers in grayscale. Therefore, if you must use colors for your figures, ensure that the different colors are highly distinguishable in gray-scale. If a figure is not easily understandable in gray-scale, then assume it will not be understood by the reviewers. It is better to just prepare your documents without color.


Please list all the cited work in the references section. Declare all the authors of the paper at time of submission. Addition/removal of authors once the paper is accepted will have to be approved by the program chair. The paper selection process is carefully run in a way that maximizes fairness by seeking to eliminate all conflicts of interest. Late changes to author lists can invalidate that process. By submitting a manuscript to GBSE 2019, the authors guarantee that the manuscript has not been previously published or accepted for publication in a substantially similar form in any conference or
journal. The authors also guarantee that no paper that contains significant overlap with the contributions of the submitted paper is under review at another conference or journal, or a workshop with an archived proceeding, or will be submitted to one of them before the GBSE 2019 author notification deadline. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection and forwarding the details of the author(s) to appropriate body.
