SNUG Paper Acceptance Criteria

The SNUG Team has implemented a two-step acceptance process: 
  1. Preliminary paper acceptance is based on the initial submission proposal.
  2. Final paper acceptance and the assignment of presentation spots at the conference are determined after the paper is complete, reviewed and approved by the SNUG Team.

The SNUG Team evaluates submissions based on a number of criteria, including:

  • Technical Relevance: Is the topic meaningful to other professionals?
  • Technical Applicability: Is the topic general enough to be helpful to other designers?
  • Technical Completeness: Is the topic explored completely? Does it detail the approach that you took to analyze and address your challenge?
  • Are the problems and solutions well described? Review lessons learned along the way (what was expected/unexpected, what went well/not so well).
  • Is the conclusion well substantiated? Why is your solution a good one? What can other designers take away and use in their work?
  • What are some ongoing areas of development or next steps that you (or a peer) could pursue?
  • General Readability: Is the paper well organized? Is the paper grammatically correct and spelled correctly?
  • Effective Summary of your effort and results.
