For the first time ICPR will employ a two-round review process similar to journal submissions. New papers can be submitted in either the first or second round. Papers that are submitted in the first round and not accepted can be encouraged to revise and re-submit, thus enabling the authors to address reviewer concerns and improve their work for a second round review. Due to the two-round submission process ICPR2020 will not have a rebuttal option.  Authors should consider this if submitting only to the second round.
