Paper proposals for the annual meetings are reviewed by all of the Executive Committee members and ranked on a scale from 1 (worst) to 10 (best). Executive Committee members do not review papers where they have a conflict or where they are an author. Simple averages of all the committee members scores are used to rank proposals and the top 20-25 are accepted for presentation. The list of papers accepted may be modified given the number of papers associated with potential presenters – a given author will be allowed 2-3 papers – and the list maybe modified given quality of past presentations.
