They are four pages long reports, structured by using the common outline of the research article (title, abstract, keywords, motivation, research questions, methodology, solution/discussion, references). 

For each of the ICIST conferences, IPC is formed based on the invitation. The invitations are sent by the co-chairs of the conference, after selecting from the pool of the respectable researchers with the international recognition in their own research areas.

The IPC are truly international. For example, out of 47 members of ICIST 2021’s IPC, 21 were from Serbia, 26 from abroad, with total of 16 countries represented.

Conference strongly encourages the participation of early-stage researchers in the work of IPC.

The principles of reasonable deadlines and balanced workload are introduced to ensure the maximum response of the IPC, both in accepting the invitations and timely review submission, thereby avoiding the assessment under pressure. Each IPC member is invited to review maximum of 1-2 submissions.
