All submitted papers will be subject to a rigorous peer review by at least two referees. ICIRA 2018 will present the Best Paper Awards and the Best Student Paper Awards to recognize outstanding papers published in the conference proceedings. A student paper is eligible for consideration for an award if, and only if the first author of the paper is a student, and the paper is presented by that student. The awards will be judged by an Awards Committee and the recipient of each award will be given a certificate of the award to be presented during the conference banquet at ICIRA 2018.
