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 — to be posted soon). Proposals submitted to specific SIGs are reviewed by volunteers appointed by that SIG; all other proposals are reviewed by volunteers assigned to the General Pool.
