What is the Role of a Committee Member?

The Hyperledger Global Forum Program Committee helps shape the content that makes Hyperledger Global Forum a successful event. The main purpose of the 2022 committee is to review the Call for Proposals (CFP) submitted by the community. The Call For Proposal period was from March 1, 2022, to May 6, 2022. 

Each committee member spends approximately 8 hours during a 2-week timeframe reviewing proposals. Talks are assigned with two top-level categories, business and technical. Committee members review their assigned submissions through an online portal and follow the scoring guidelines as outlined below.

The program committee may also be called up to help ensure a conference agenda outline with a balance between panels, workshops, talks, and networking breaks and support event participation for example, as networking coordinators, moderators and/or emcees.

Inclusive Collaboration by Design

If you ever attended a Hyperledger event or meeting, you have likely heard the phrase “All Are Welcome Here”. Our program committee is representative of our community at large and we encouraged all reviewers to ensure that the speakers are coming from diverse backgrounds in all possible terms:

  • Gender
  • Geography
  • Companies
  • Race
  • Etc

For each review, the committee member is reminded to provide feedback on the talk by answering questions like “Do the authors come from diverse backgrounds?” “Is the topic unusual?” “Does the submission get everyone to think outside of their boxes?” “Is the language not English?” “Will the topic actively encourage increasing diversity and inclusion?”

What are the 2022 CFP Scoring Guidelines?

Scoring Guidelines are an important part of the Content selection process integrity: It is very important to protect the integrity of the review process, and avoid the impression of a biased review and all our reviewers must also adhere to our Code of Conduct
