IEEE INFOCOM incorporates a rigorous double-blind review process, empowered by a fully automated review assignment system that analyzes the submitted manuscripts and the representative publications of TPC members, and matches the submissions to TPC members’ expertise and interests. The automated review assignment system, termed Erie, is described in the following paper.

B. Li and Y.T. Hou. “The new automated INFOCOM review assignment system,” IEEE Network, vol.30, no.5, pp.18-24, Sept./Oct. 2016.
