IEEE International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB 2023)

Rebuttal Instructions

After receiving the reviews, authors may optionally submit a rebuttal to address the comments and concerns raised by the reviewers. The rebuttal is limited to a one-page PDF document and should be written using the “IJCB 2023 Rebuttal Template”. 

[Mandatory Template] IJCB 2023 Rebuttal Template

The rebuttal must maintain anonymity and cannot include external links (except for links to external content that is not part of your submission, for example, to existing software used in a submission by a GitHub link). The rebuttal should follow the same policies as the main conference submission.

Responses longer than one page will not be reviewed. This includes responses where the margins and formatting are deemed to have been significantly altered from those specified by the style guide.

The author’s rebuttal is optional and is meant to provide an opportunity to dispute factual errors or to supply additional information requested by the reviewers. It is NOT intended to add new contributions (theorems, algorithms, experiments) that were absent in the original submission and NOT specifically requested by the reviewers. You may optionally add a figure, graph or proof to your rebuttal to better illustrate your answer to the reviewers’ comments.

The rebuttal will not necessarily be seen by the reviewers. It will be used by the Area Chairs to help with the decision process. The reviewers may optionally look at the rebutall for discussion purposes for papers with mixed and borderline reviews, but will not be required to do so.

A useful resource that can help write good rebuttals is the “How we write rebuttals” article by
