Conflicts of Interest

Don't forget to list conflict of interests with all potential ICS reviewers and especially with respect to the Program Chair and Program Committee members. In particular, for all co-authors, please declare a conflict on interest with:

  • Your Ph.D. advisor and Ph.D. students forever.
  • Family relations by blood or marriage forever
    (if they might be potential ICS reviewers).
  • People with whom you collaborated with in the last FIVE years. Collaborators include co-authors on an accepted/rejected/pending research paper, co-PIs on an accepted/rejected/pending grant, funders of you research, and researcher who you fund. You many exclude "service" collaborations like writing CSTB report or serving on a program committee together.
  • People who shared your primary institution in the last FIVE years.
  • Others with whom you believe a conflict of interest exists.
