A rigorous, unprejudiced and efficient review process is the corner stone for a reputable conference. Objective and constructive comments from reviewers are very helpful for authors to remedy flaws and improve quality of their work. Peer review is of vital importance to support the editorial decision. Whether to accept or reject a manuscript can be decided basically on the comments from reviewers in the same areas of research. We are grateful to reviewers for engaging in the review process, during which they devote their time and expertise to peer review and offer support.

How to review
Peer review should be performed ethically and responsively. Reviewers will be invited to review a manuscript with title and abstract provided. Looking through the title an abstract quickly, reviewers should give a timely response to the invitation. If you could not take the review task for some reason (e.g., too busy), you should inform the editor promptly.
Peer reviewers are expected to give notice to the editor when these situations occur：

You find the manuscript confusing or beyond your academic expertise.
You would like to involve someone else into the reviewing process.
You are not sure if conflicts of interest exist.
Reviewers will be asked to strictly evaluate the manuscript based on significant factors of “originality, scientific soundness, completeness and quality of presentation and English level” and provide detailed and constructive review report to the editor.
The review report should give constructive advices aiming at the overall improvement of the paper. Invited reviewers are asked to give detailed comments on the manuscript covering overall recommendation and detailed comments in the review reports. The review report concludes comments on each part of the paper such as title, abstract, references… If revision of the manuscript is suggested, it should be specific to particular paragraphs or sentences.
