Review Criteria

CIES relies on a team of volunteer reviewers from across the Society to evaluate paper, panel, roundtable and poster session proposals. (See the Call for Reviewers). Proposals submitted to specific SIGs or Committees are reviewed by volunteers appointed by that SIG or Committee; all other proposals are reviewed by volunteer reviewers assigned to the General Pool. The following five criteria and 4-point rating scale will be used for CIES 2021:
