I am currently working on two papers A and B to be submitted to different conferences. Paper A is already submitted and under review and I am currently writing paper B. They address different methods but stem from the same project and thus refer to the same example use case.
Q 1: Is it acceptable to reuse a paragraph describing the use case in verbatim or is this considered self-plagiarism?
Q 2a: Does it make a (positive) difference if I cite paper A in paper B?
Q 2b: How would I do that, given that it is not yet accepted/published?
