Section and Working Group heads must ensure that chairs, discussants and respondents are aware of their roles and responsibilities and to make sure they are aware of the information/guidelines on this page.
Each Online Paper Panel has been allocated one chair with the following responsibilities:
- Provide brief feedback to each paper and/or to the panel as a whole
- Motivate respondents/discussants and "attendees" to provide feedback on the papers
- Seek to ensure that feedback follows the CCC principle: Constructive, Courteous and Critical
Some S/WGs allocated a single discussant to each panel. Others assigned a respondent to each paper within the panel (normally selected from the other members of the panel itself). The decision about which method to use it up to the heads of the S/WG.
Respondents are requested to provide feedback on a single paper in the online paper panel. An initial comment should be made soon after the publication of the papers. Follow-up comments until 12 September are welcome and encouraged.
Discussants are invited to comment on the panel as a whole, preferably their comments will address each of the papers in the panel. An initial comment should be made soon after the publication of the papers. Follow-up comments until 12 September are welcome and encouraged.
When it comes to feedback, there are a few things to keep in mind for all participants:
- It should use the CCC feedback principle: Feedback should be Constructive, Courteous and Critical.
- Feedback does not need to be extensive. It may consist out of a few lines, e.g., giving one good suggestion, or it could be a longer set of comments. This is up to the chair/respondent/discussant/attendee to decide for themselves.
- Feedback might trigger dialogue. Authors are welcome to respond to feedback, and to the discussion chair and the respondent are invited to further engage.
Online Papers will remain online until 12 September. Authors, chairs and respondents/discussants are requested to periodically checkin to see if new dialogue may have developed.
