I sent a paper to a top-tier computer-science conference, it was rejected and I got several useful suggestions for improvement. I improved the paper accordingly and I consider to submit it to the same conference in the following year. It is likely that the paper will be reviewed by the same referees.
When sending a revised paper to a journal, the authors should indicate where exactly they revised the paper, so that the referees do not have to read everything again. Should I do the same in this case? If so, how can I indicate to the referees the locations in which I corrected the paper according to their comments from previous year?
My concern is that, if I do not indicate where I revised the paper, the referees might think "we have already reviewed this paper and rejected it last year, and it looks similar, so we should reject it again".
