Meeting Agenda

Peer Review Overview

Each panel will include 5-7 panelists, one chair and one deputy chair. We aim for 10 primary and 10 secondary proposals per panel member. The chair will not be given a full load. Proposals will be sent to reviewers 4 weeks prior to the review. We request preliminary grades to be sent electronically to the CXC in advance of the review in order to aid with prioritization during the review itself.

Expected Attendance

Registration is Monday evening for all Reviewers, Deputy Chairs and Chairs and opens again Tuesday morning until the start of Opening Remarks. Pundits are expected to arrive by mid-afternoon Wednesday. There is an optional reception Monday evening in conjunction with registration activities.
