How are decisions made about what is accepted for the conference?

This year, the Program Committee was charged with considering over 1,000 proposals for about 200 sessions. Not only was the number of proposals high but so too was the quality. To make these decisions, nearly 500 ASHE members completed over 3,000 reviews. Each format type included a separate rubric that aligned with the Call For Proposals. The Program Committee then met in June to make decisions by weighing quantitative scores and qualitative feedback to tune their decisions which they used to create cohesive sessions. In the end, more than 500 proposals were accepted. For more information regarding the review process visit: ashe.ws/reviewprocess

​When will I find out if my proposal has been accepted or rejected?

Notices will be sent out in early July.

How do I access reviewer feedback on my proposal?

NOTE: Reviewer notification emails for a proposal are only sent to the submitter of the proposal. 

  1. ​Go to ASHE Conference Portal and log in with your ASHE member or Guest log-in information.
  2. Under the  “Submitter Menu,” click on the "Submitter" link. Once you do this, your submission(s) will be listed under the submissions tab.

  3. In the "Action" column, click on the "Review Summary" link to access reviewers' comments for the proposal.

  4. This will also be the place where you upload your final paper if your proposal was accepted.

I am an author but did not receive a notification. How do I find out if I was accepted and how do I access reviews?

Only the proposal submitter will receive a notification email. If you were the proposal submitter and did not receive a notification, please email conference@ashe.ws. If you were not the submitter but were listed on the proposal and want to view the reviews, you can log in to the ASHE Conference Portal, click "Submitter" in the Submitter menu, then click the "Participations" tab. All of the proposals you are associated with, as well as any other conference roles (discussant, chair, organizer, etc.), will appear here. Click "Review Summary" to view reviewer comments and scores. 

My scores were high, why wasn't I accepted?
To select conference presentations, nearly 500 ASHE members completed over 3,000 reviews of over 1,000 proposals. Each format type included a separate rubric that aligned with the Call For Proposals. The Program Committee then met in June to make decisions by weighing quantitative scores and qualitative feedback to tune their decisions as they worked to create cohesive sessions. For more information regarding the review process visit: ashe.ws/reviewprocess.

Can you re-evaluate my proposal?
Proposals are not able to be re-evaluated as decisions of the Program Committee are final due to time and space constraints.

Was my proposal also considered for a works in progress or poster?

As communicated in the Call for Proposals, Roundtables are now Works in Progress which are meant to be unfinished projects or emerging ideas that the authors are actively working on. With this change, Research and Scholarly Papers are no longer able to be considered for alternate presentation formats as Works in Progress and Research and Scholarly Papers should differ in their format. Submitters were encouraged to consider the format that best matches their work.
