Overview of the Proposal Review Process
Strand Reviewers use the DEC Session Rubric to score proposals. Each proposal will be scored by two reviewers. The scores are then averaged.
Strand Chairs oversee the process for their strand; making sure the reviewers are on track to finish by the deadline. If needed, they may complete unfinished reviews. The Strand Chairs will view the proposals that are above a specified cut-score. The proposals will then be ranked based on the reviewer scores.
Conference Co-Chairs make the final decision to accept or decline a session.
