Guidelines for Reviewers

In a change from previous congresses, there will be an online papers and posters submission system for CERME10 which is being managed by the congress organiser, Keynote PCO. All authors will submit the initial version of their paper on the website. The TWG Leader will organize an internal review in the TWG. The final version of the papers will be directly submitted by the authors to the submission website, for publication on the CERME website prior to the congress.

An online submission system is an important tool, for a large conference like CERME. It requires that everyone take very seriously all the deadlines indicated below, particularly the review deadlines:

  • Initial submission by authors: 15th September 2016.
  • TWG teams send papers to reviewers by 22nd September 2016.
  • The reviewers send back (by e-mail) their reviews to TWG Leader by 20th October 2016.
  • Keynote PCO sends authors the information on the status of their paper by 2nd November 2016 (and announces that the reviews will be sent by the TWG leader).
  • The TWG Leader sends authors revisions requested on 3rd November 2016.
  • Keynote PCO sends authors the information on the status of their poster by 10th November 2016 (and announces that the reviews will be sent by the TWG leader).
  • The authors send a revised version with a description of the changes made to the TWG team (Leader and Co-Leaders) by 24th November 2016.
  • The TWG team takes the final decision and informs the authors by 5th December 2016, and, if needed, discusses with them the final adjustments to the papers and posters.
  • The authors upload the final version of their paper or poster to online submission system by 12th December 2016.
  • Papers and posters received after this date will not be available on the CERME website pre-congress.

The CERME10 Guidelines for Reviewers details the review process. You must use the CERME10 Review form when reviewing papers and posters. Please note that some slight modifications have been made to the paper template, e.g., the font size has been reduced to 12 point and, correspondingly, the maximum number of pages is eight (rather than ten as in previous years).
