Assessment Criteria

Submissions for individual contributions, panels and SACM specialist group sessions will be assessed anonymously by a minimum of two experts (peer review). Hence, all contact details mandatorily have to be noted on a separate cover page. Also, it should be avoided to offer references in the short paper, which allow inference regarding authorship. Reviewers will adhere to the following assessment criteria: 1) Relevance of the topic, 2) Reference to the conference topic, 3) Theoretical foundation, 4) Appropriateness of method/approach, 5) Clarity of argumentation
