IV. Policy on Plagiarism
All papers submitted to IEEE WCCI 2012 will be checked for plagiarism including self-plagiarism. If a paper is found to fall in the category of plagiarism, the paper will be automatically rejected. A list of Authors of the papers identified in the category of plagiarism will be forwarded to the IEEE.
V. Policy on Conflict of Interest
Policy for submitting papers by special session organizers to their special session
A special session organizer may choose to submit a paper to their own special session. The paper should choose the "Conflict of interest" topic as the main topic from the drop down list on the submission webpage. These papers will not be managed by the special session organizers. They will be handled by the Program Chair of the conference. If the paper is accepted, it will be scheduled in the program with other papers from that special session.
To give an example. John is organizing a special session on Media. John wants to submit a paper to his own special session on Media. John must choose the "conflict of interest" topic from the drop down list in the submission webpage. The paper submitted by John to the Media special session will be managed by the program chair, and John will not have access to the identity of the reviewers who reviewed this paper.
Michael is organizing a special session on Newspapers. Michael would like to submit a paper to a different special session that he is not an organizer or submit a paper to the main track. This paper is not a Conflict of interest paper.
Policy for submitting papers by General Chair, any of the three Conference Chairs, or any of the three Program Chairs
Any paper submitted by the General Chair, Conference Chairs, or Program Chairs must choose "Conflict of interest" from the main topic from the drop down list on the submission webpage. These papers will be managed by two independent chairs outside the review management system. The two independent chairs for 2012 are Prof. Gary Fogel and Prof. Hisao Ishibuchi. They will coordinate the reviews for these papers outside the review management system. Decisions made by the two independent chairs on these papers will be final.
