Review Process

We’re committed to ensuring that the GHCI review process leads to high quality, credible and diverse sessions.

All submissions are reviewed on a fair and even-handed basis across all sub-disciplines. The reviewers are assigned in a manner, ensuring there is no conflict of interest. Reviewers are experienced professionals from  across the industry and academia.

Each reviewer prepares his/her review independently of others looking at the submission. Your submission will have more than one reviewer. The committee organizes a discussion of the submissions, but only between reviewers who have already submitted a full review in draft.

Once all submissions receive their ratings, the GHCI 2016 conference leadership will design a well-balanced program that includes content to appeal to our diverse audience. Due to load balancing and limited program slots, unfortunately, not all meritorious submissions can be accepted.

By September 2016, you will receive an email notifying you of our decision regarding your submission. In order to preserve the integrity of the process, we do not change these decisions once they are made.
