Guidelines on conflict of interest:

We define a conflict of interest as:

  • Your Ph.D. advisors, post-doctoral advisors, Ph.D. students, and post-doctoral advisees 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 your research, and researchers whom you fund. “Service” collaborations, such as writing a CSTB report or serving on a program committee, are not a conflict-of-interest by themselves.
  • People who were employed by, or a student at, your primary institution(s) in the past five years.
  • Others with whom you believe a conflict of interest exists. Send email to the program chair if you have a question.
