Shepherding process will be used to help authors get a second chance at submitting a paper that has good results but is suffering from bad reviews just because of the inexperienced write up style or some small pieces of missing information.
Authors of such papers will get detailed feedback and opportunity to resubmit with guidance from an experienced member of the community.
We, on the review form, encourage reviewers to review the merits of the work itself, rather than the write up. This allows us to see good content and then help authors to get over write up hurdles.
We sincerely hope this process works and authors will get the help they need and come to the conference to present their work.
