All peer reviewed papers presented at the VALA Biennial Conference are identified on our website with the VALA Peer Reviewed Paper logo.
Other than the keynotes, and a very small number of invited papers, every abstract and paper at the VALA Biennial Conference is peer reviewed by at least two reviewers. We are fortunate that we can rely on the generosity and knowledge of a large group of expert reviewers who are located across Australia as well as overseas. We are also fortunate that we receive many more abstract submissions than we have places in the Conference program. VALA conference papers are reviewed, using the single-blind, two-round review process by at least two independent reviewers, in accordance with HERDC guidelines.
Occasionally the VALA Conference Committee will invite an individual, or individuals, to present a paper at the Biennial Conference. These papers are identifiable by the VALA Invited Paper logo. When inviting individuals to deliver papers at the Biennial Conference, VALA’s Program Committee always strives to ensure delegates will be presented with the very best and latest in research relating to information technology.
The VALA Committee, and our Conference Program Committee, would like to recognise and thank all the speakers and presenters, as well as all the reviewers, for their hard work. This all helps support the quality for which VALA conferences are recognised.
