SICSA Education is pleased to support the ‘How to: Peer Review for CHI and Beyond’ event on 14th July at the Advanced Research Centre (ARC), University of Glasgow.
Learn the art of Peer Review for CHI and beyond in this interactive event at the University of Glasgow

What can I expect from this workshop?

A key challenge for people that are new to reviewing is pitching the review at the right level, and getting the tone and structure of a review right. This course aims to help participants understand a) the different expectations of different venues and submission types, b) the processes they use to make decisions, and c) good techniques for producing a review for these different circumstances. Combined with developing a good understanding of these different expectations, participants have a chance to critique anonymised proto-reviews, and try to guess the venue they are written for and the recommendation they make.

What will I learn?

1. Understand the different types of submissions that can be reviewed
2. Understand the different processes used by different venues (for different types of submissions)
3. Reflect on what senior reviewers want from a review (and therefore how they might be structured)
4. Critique example reviews for different types of sub- missions for different types of venues

Can I participate?
This workshop is suitable for all early career researchers, including PhD students, in the field of Computing Science. No prior experience in peer reviewing is required. While it will be particularly beneficial for researchers in HCI/HRI and those submitting to CHI, the workshop covers general principles of peer reviewing and is open to all researchers across research institutions in the UK.

Who is organising this workshop?
The workshop is organized by the Multimodal Interaction Group at the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow.
