Through mostly interactive exercises, this workshop, led by Dr Max Wilson, Associate Professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Nottingham, discusses a range of approaches to Peer Review suitable for different situations (from workshops, to conferences, to peer-reviewed conferences, to journals, and more).
The workshop is split in two parts focusing on:
1. The purpose of peer review
2. The process of a review.
The aim of Part 1 (purpose) is to help participants understand what is expected from peer reviewing, and how the information put into a review is used by organisers later in the process, and how these vary for different venues and types of submission.
Part 2 (process) covers approaches to reading, approaches to structuring a review, dos and don’ts, and how to judge and make appropriate recommendations.
