|Selecting Technical Papers for an Interdisciplinary Conference: The PASC Review Process|
(In Proceedings of the 3rd Platform of Advanced Scientific Computing Conference (PASC'16), Jun. 2016)
AbstractWe discuss the paper selection process of the ACM PASC16 conference. The conference spans multiple scientific fields used to very different publication cultures. We aim to combine the strengths of the conference and journal publication schemes in order to design an attractive high-quality publication venue for works in large-scale computational science. We use four non-standard key ideas (1) no pre-selected committee, (2) short revision process, (3) full double-blindness, and (4) suggested expert reviews to design a paper selection process for ACM PASC16. In this overview, we document observations of the process and provide data in an attempt to characterize the effectiveness of the used mechanisms. We hope that the ideas can be used beyond ACM PASC16.
