GHC 18 Review Process

Each of our submissions undergoes a rigorous review by highly qualified, passionate teams of volunteer reviewers. We pick reviewers for each track based on their deep understanding of topical areas. They come from large and small organizations, academic institutions, government labs, startups, and nonprofits.

Review Process

We’re committed to ensuring that the GHC review process leads to high quality, credible, and diverse sessions. We review all submissions on a fair and evenhanded basis across all sub-disciplines.

  1. Each reviewer prepares her/his review independently of others looking at the submission.
  2. The committee organizes a discussion of the submissions, but only between reviewers who have already submitted a full review in draft.
  3. Once all submissions receive their ratings, our 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.
  4. We will send an email notifying you of our submission decision by May 16. In order to preserve the integrity of the process, we do not change these decisions once they are made.
