Call for Reviewers

Call for Reviewers Is Now Closed. Thank you to everyone who volunteered.

Each Presentation Track offers proposal guidelines and keywords that best represent their interest for this year's conference. These guidelines are offered to assist and are by no means limitations.

The ILA is seeking peer reviewers to evaluate proposals for the 19th Annual ILA Global Conference in Brussels, Belgium. Volunteers may review and recommend proposals within their areas of expertise based on the conference Track Descriptions. The ILA uses a rigorous 3-step Submission Review Process and various Evaluation Criteria.

Reviewers commit to evaluating a minimum of 10 proposals if volunteering for the Business Leadership, Leadership Development, Leadership Education, Public Leadership, and/or Youth Leadership tracks and 3 proposals if volunteering for the Leadership Scholarship track. Most reviews will entail reading an abstract (~20 minutes) and reviewing it (~20 minutes). Submissions with papers attached may require additional time, dependent upon the length of the paper. Submissions will be distributed for review by February 16, 2017 and must be completed by March 10, 2017 using the online review system.

Please note: If you volunteer for two tracks (maximum you may volunteer for) you will be assigned the maximum number of proposals per track. If you only wish to review one set of proposals, please select the ONE track you feel you are best suited to review.
