All references to the author’s name and affiliation are to be removed and the manuscript is required to be submitted for blind review by academics with knowledge of the academic field within which the manuscript is categorized. With the advice of the reviewers, the Symposium Editor will make one of four decisions: accept, accept contingent upon revision, revise and resubmit, or reject.
