Re: CEUR-WS-25th-anniversary-1995-2020


It is great to see alternative publishing outlets for proceedings,
I am evaluating this outlet and have two bits of feedback:

*The process*
I find headings such as policy, benefits, preconditions etc
but not How to submit, Have to read in much detail the whole page to find
out how to submit. This information could be better organised, to make it
quicker for the reader
to find the information they need

*POLICY -* the policy as declared in the page above is incomplete! some
important bit is missing: The team says in email:

*we reserve the right to reject a submission based on our criteria.
Therules are necessarily vague.*

What are the criteria?  This is not in the policy, however it seems  rather
I hope this service matures and to be using it ,
