A committee of government employees will review the submissions and select the presentations for the program based on the relevance, usefulness, and quality of the submission and qualifications of the presenters. We expect to finalize the program in May.

Evaluation Process 

By submitting a presentation for review, the submitter, and panelists agree to the UX Summit review process. A committee composed of government employee volunteers will review all submissions.

To make the final selections, the reviewers will consider the following for each submission:

  1. Relevance to the UX Community of Practice
  2. Usefulness of the presentation
  3. Quality of the submission
  4. Qualifications of the speakers and submitters
  5. Appropriateness of the content for the proposed session length (we may suggest changes)

NOTE: In addition to considering these criteria, the reviewers will strive to achieve a diverse, balanced, and equitable program for the Summit.
