the reviewers in any way and may give your paper a low score because
of insufficient information available in the abstract.

- Only the original authors should submit their research and any
submission from a third party will be rejected.
- The Abstract should clearly mention the techniques and hacks in
detail and merely mentioning that it works will not help in
