The 2022 conference is a joint conference between DEC and the International Society on Early Intervention (ISEI). To allow time for scheduling, deadlines will be strictly enforced.
Additionally, the proposal review process changed - there will be Super Reviewers and Reviewers. Super Reviewers agree to review proposals entered close to the deadline / review at the last-minute. Super Reviewers also agree to review across multiple strands.
Super Reviewers & Reviewers:
Are assigned to conference strands based on expertise and experience.
Receive a notification email when a proposal is assigned.
Review and rate the proposal against the rubric - within 2 weeks of receipt.
Are asked to please include comments to assist the Conference Co-Chairs in making final decisions
SUPER REVIEWERS will be assigned to finish proposals not completed prior to the deadline and may be asked to review across multiple strands.
Application & Notification of Assignment:
Super Reviewer and Reviewer applications will be reviewed and assigned weekly on an ongoing basis until the reviewer application closes on January 31, 2022 @ 12:00 PM ET.
Reviews are due two weeks after assigned. If a Proposal is submitted/assigned near the Proposal deadline (March 15), the Reviewer has until March 21 to finish the review.
