NOCS 2017 utilizes a blind review process. When preparing your manuscript, do not include any information which could reveal the identity of the authors. The title section of your manuscript should not contain any author, affiliation status, email addresses, or contact information. In the body of the submission you should reference any of your prior work only if absolutely necessary and as a third party reference, e.g., "we improve the work reported in [x] by ...". We need your cooperation in our effort to maintain a fair blind review process.
