The reviews will be double-blind. Each submission will be examined by 2 reviewers independently. The conference submission management system is using papericop.mercubuana-yogya.ac.id.

The first step of the submission is abstract submission. The abstract will be initially screened by the reviewers by checking the quality and the relevancy with the topics and subtopics of ICoP. The author of selected abstract will be notified to submit the full paper. The reviewer team will review the submitted full paper based on the editorial policy including matters regarding to competing interest. A paper will be accepted after it has met the required criteria based on the decision of 2 reviewers.
