Conference paper selection

  1. Shortlist paper proposals for consideration as full papers, based on double-blind review by at least 3 judges.
  2. Select the papers for the conference based on double-blind review by at least 3 judges.
    1. All papers will compete in one pool.
    2. The selected papers will be organized into coherent sessions by the administrative partner, who will also assign a chair and discussant for each session and initiate the mentoring process.
    3. The highest-ranked paper in each session will be shortlisted for the best-paper competition.  In the event non-shortlisted papers have significantly higher scores than shortlisted papers, the administrative partner may add up to three papers to the short list for a total of a maximum of n+3, n being the number of sessions.  It is necessary to have a short list of papers to be considered for the best-paper competition, to manage the workload of the judges.  The best paper and runner up are to be selected based on a mix of factors including content and presentation.  Audience scores will account for 40 per cent of the total as in previous competitions.
  3. Require that policy briefs be submitted by a set deadline
    1. The best policy brief (and runner up) will be selected by two judges with no audience participation, purely based on the written text.
