Please note that rating of abstracts will be based upon - and should also include information regarding - the following criteria for the final paper and presentation:
- Quality – The abstract should be well organized and easily understood. The abstract and summary are good indicators of what can be expected of the prospective authors for a full-length paper.
- Relevance – The abstract should be highly relevant to the interests of a user group audience, and to the track topic in particular.
- Impact – Submissions reporting on important results, methodologies, or case studies of special significance are favourable.
- Originality – New design methodologies or a case study for an innovative design have great educational value.
- Commercial content – It is acceptable to use a product in a design case study or as a proof-of-concept for a design methodology, and many of the abstracts a user group views most favourably do just that. However, we also know that the audience responds negatively to anything that comes across as a product pitch. A good case study that uses a real product in an appropriate manner to demonstrate feasibility or illustrate a concept will be considered favourably.
