The Outstanding Reviewer Award has been initiated by Professor Roger Bons. Bled eConference relies on the work of the program committee, authors and supporters to ensure a double-blind review of each paper. The Bled Conference team believes that the review process is a key component of the tight-knit Bled community. We are proud of Bled eConference as a space for researchers to share ideas, receive constructive feedback, and find opportunities for collaboration among Bled community members.
The Outstanding Reviewer Award is our way to thank the individuals that share our community view and maintain positive, development-oriented attitudes through their reviews.
Reviewer guidelines for Bled eConference have been prepared by founding member of the Bled eConference professor Roger Clarke, Xamax Consultancy Pty Ltd & The Australian National University, Australia.
Reviewer Guidelines are available here.
Roger Clarke has been serving as the Committee Chair since the beginning and up to the 30th Bled eConference in 2017. Bled eConference and the wider community would like to express their gratitude to Roger Clarke for his valuable contribution to the development of the scientific part of the conference and his endless encouragement of researchers towards “rigour and relevance” balance of their research which in turn brought value beyond science to the real world.
