Abstract assessment
In assessing submissions to the 5th ICCS conference, the review committee will take into account the following criteria:
  •  Is the question or issue clearly stated?
  • Is the significance of the work clearly mentioned? Is relevant previous work appropriately cited?
  •  If relevant, are the method, data collection, and analysis procedures well-designed and appropriately applied?
  •  Is the conceptual framework coherent? If relevant, is the theoretical analysis well-argued?
  • Is the work original? Does it present new data (if relevant)?
  •  Is the work completed, or does it show very strong promise of being completed in time for the conference?
  • Are the conclusions justified in relation to the data and/or analyses?
  •  Is the abstract written clearly and organized well?
  •  Is the topic of scientific, methodological or theoretical importance?
  •  Is the paper timely in terms of current issues of interest to the field of Cognitive Science?
Peer review process
Abstracts are assessed based on the general guidelines of preparing abstracts, subject relevancy, and the criteria stated above.  Each abstract is assigned to three anonymous reviewers.  In case reviewers require further information about the submission, you will be asked to resubmit an extended version of the abstract with a word-count of 600 to 900.  Declining to resubmit the requested abstract within the specified deadline would result in the rejection of the submission.
Result announcement
Results, along with the type of presentation (oral or poster), will be announced by 23 February, 2013.
