How to contact the shepherd

Dear [Shepherd Name],

We were very happy to learn that our paper is in “accepted” — subject to shepherding — to appear at [Conference Name], and that you are the shepherd. We are currently going through the reviews in detail to improve the paper.

While preparing for the detailed plan, it would be great to accommodate your instructions ahead if you have them. We also want to have your opinions on the reviewer’s comment. Let us know if you have any specific instruction as well.

Thank you for taking the time to help us.
