Guidelines on conflict of interest:
When you submit your work, you will be asked to create a list of people with whom you have a conflict-of-interest. For this purpose, we are defining a conflict of interest as:

* Your Ph.D. advisor and Ph.D. students forever.
* Family relations by blood or marriage forever.
* People with whom you collaborated in the past five years.
* Collaborators, include co-authors on an accepted/rejected/pending research paper, co-PIs on an accepted/rejected/pending grant, those who fund of your research, and researchers who you fund. "Service" collaborations, such as writing CSTB report or serving on a program committee, are not a conflict-of-interest by themselves.
* People who were employed or a student your primary institution(s) in the past five years.
* Others with whom you believe a conflict of interest exists (check with the general or program chair if you have a question or doubt).
