Note that for Markup Technologies, unlike other GCA conferences, FULL PAPERS must be submitted for Peer review.
The Technical Committee of Markup Technologies is seeking
applicants to participate in the conference's Peer Review
Panel. Peer Review Panel members will review several papers
to speak at the conference, suggesting whether the paper should
be accepted, where in the conference it should be placed, and
ways in which the presentation could be improved. All papers
will be sent to the Peer Reviewers without attribution, and
any suggestions for improvements will be forwarded to the
author without attribution. In other words, this will be a
double-blind review process.
Peer Reviews play a key role in maintaining the quality and
diversity of the presentations at a conference. If you have
any questions about the Peer Review process or the role of
members of the Peer review Panel please contact:
