One of our goals every year with SATURN is to create a solid technical program that is informative, engaging, and lasting. When evaluating proposals for the program, the review committee uses the following guidelines to help decide whether a proposal is a good match for this year's conference. In these guidelines, the term "session" is used generically to describe any talks, workshops, tutorials, and so on in the conference program.
Informative sessions share meaningful insights with lessons that attendees will be able to apply directly with their teams after the conference.
Engaging sessions create an active learning environment that promotes information retention and generally gets attendees excited about the topics discussed.
Lasting sessions have appeal beyond current fads and attempt to weave new ideas into our overall understanding of how we develop software systems.
Our intent in sharing this information is to help you to write the best proposal possible. Use these evaluation guidelines to tailor your proposals and help create the best SATURN Conference yet. Strong proposals will have some "yes" answers in each of the guidelines. Also note that these are only guidelines and not hard-and-fast rules. We are excited to see all the great ideas that are proposed!
