International Review Committee
When abstract submissions closed on 4th October 2018, our 100-strong list of online reviewers (IRC – International Review Committee) began their task of reviewing the 1200 abstracts we received. Each abstract was reviewed 2-3 times.
Executive Programme Committee
When this process ended, our 38-person conference programme committee (EPC – Executive Programme Committee) met in London to review the abstracts again in person, taking into account the reviews of the IRC. We were blown away by the quality of the submissions and selecting abstracts was extremely difficult.
