My colleagues and I are planning to submit to a conference which adopts double-blind review. The deadline of the conference is in 3 weeks. The work we plan to submit is built on our previous work that has just been accepted 2 weeks ago.
The first paper was actually submitted 6 months ago, but it was rejected at the first time. That's why there is only a very small gap of time between the two papers.
We need to cite the first paper, and its title together with the list of authors already appeared in the list of accepted papers on the conference website.
We can try to cite it as somebody else' work. However, any reviewers can conclude that this is the work of the same group. In this case, do we violate the double-blind review policy?
How should we proceed? We desperately want to submit to this conference, waiting should be the very last option.
