Conference peer review occurs within a fixed window of time. All authors are notified of the peer review decision on their paper at the same time.
You may receive one of three possible decisions:
- Accept: Your paper will be published without edits. You may be asked to upload final camera-ready files or to sign a copyright form.
- Accept with revision: Your paper will be accepted after you implement edits suggested by the reviewers. You will be asked to provide a revised version.
- Reject: Your paper will not be presented at the conference or published in the conference proceedings. You may submit your paper to another IEEE publication.
Due to a limited peer review period, many conferences do not offer a revision option. Instead, they will will either accept or reject the initial submission.
