Paper and Award Recipients' Selection
The papers for the Mini-Conference and the Junior Scholar Competition award recipients will be selected by a three-person Awards Committee, which consists of the Chair and two members. To inform its opinion, the Committee will seek up to three referee reports for each submission. The referees will be selected to minimize the conflict of interest with the authors, and will include other CBOM members and/or researchers in this domain. To the extent possible, anonymous referee comments will be returned for each submission.
