The 2018 Rockcliffe University Consortium Conference needs committee members to help with the planning and organization of the conference and annual general meeting. Volunteers receive a special conference rate in addition to a special take-home gift for contributing to the conference.
Scholarly peer reviewers play a central role in validating research and helping to enforce the quality standards by which a conference is known. The Rockcliffe University Consortium Conference relies on the peer review process to evaluate the merits of submitted proposals and subsequent paper publication. As a Peer Reviewer you will be reviewing abstracts, some with papers attached, for inclusion into the conference program. Reviews will be double blind, and completed by April 22, 2018. Peer reviewers will be required to submit a curriculum vitae in order to match proposal submissions to reviewer knowledge base.
You will be guiding 30 minute structured interactive sessions that immediately follow lecture presentations. If you have a talent for herding cats and coordinating 20-30 people into an activity, you would be perfect for this position. Teachers are especially welcome. You will not be required to plan the session, but rather will follow a pre-set plan.
