The review process does not involve authors feedback and rebuttals. Upon acceptance, the program chairs/committees will select several papers as oral presentations in the workshop, as well as the best paper award among all the submissions. The best papers of the workshop will have the opportunity to be invited as a submission to a Special Issue of Pattern Recognition.
