We are happy to announce that the review process has finished and that 886 individual papers, 43 panels and 155 posters were accepted to ECC 2018 Lugano conference. Notifications of acceptance have been sent and participants need to confirm their participation by 1 June 2018.
We would like to thank all the reviewers and Section, Network and TWG programme chairs for all the work that went into the review process.
We would also like to provide information about a technical error that occurred at the beginning of the notification process, when for a brief period, the submitters were able to see not only their scores but also the names of the reviewers. According to the information provided to us by the technical company that runs the platform, the names of reviewers were visible for a two-hour time window to up to 130 out of over 2.000 submissions. While this does not put in question the credibility of the review process (the review itself was based on uncompromised double blind peer-review), we nevertheless want to apologise for any inconvenience that might have been caused by the unintended disclosure of reviewers.
