We implement a double-blind review process. Submissions must be anonymous and the submission must be made via EasyChair:

We are committed to create an equal opportunity environment, without regard to race, gender identity or expression, age, disability, or any other status. For this reason, if you feel that you are in a disadvantaged situation or you require assistance please reach out to us ( We’ll be more than happy to help and allow everyone to submit a paper.

We are keen to create a fair working environment for the crowd workers and annotators. For this reason, each submission should clearly state the policies implemented to pursue this aim; each paper should be clear about the amount of work required for an annotator to submit the task, the payment, the time spent by the annotators to finish the task, and all the relevant details aimed at making clear that workers and annotators obtained a fair compensation and treatment for their work.
