Paper Acceptance Criteria

The SNUG Technical Committee has implemented a two-step acceptance process:

  1. Preliminary submission 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 or presentation is complete, reviewed and approved by the Technical Committee.

The SNUG Technical Committee 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 submission well organized? Is it grammatically correct and spelled correctly?
  • Effective Summary of your effort and results.

Presenting at SNUG

Your SNUG presentation should be a ‘discussion’ rather than a ‘reading’ of your technical paper. While you should cover the same key points in both your paper and session presentation, SNUG attendees will be most interested in hearing you describe your techniques and approach and support your conclusions.

Most SNUG presentations are 30-40 minutes in length, including 5-10 minutes for Q&A. Your SNUG team will communicate specific details and presentation times after final acceptances are made.
