Velvet Chainsaw

Are Your Speakers Speaking to Speakers?

Velvet Chainsaw

I wonder about the future of peer review for conference abstracts. While it is a critical filter for high-quality journals, it is a very inefficient process for accelerating innovation and discovery at conferences. Many healthcare and STEM conference business models are heavily dependent on participants who are able to justify their attendance in part because their oral or poster abstract has been accepted. Conversely, most conference abstracts cover work that is in progress.
