After submission

After your submissions have been received by September 15, 2019, they will be matched and distributed automatically (via Conf Tool) to the reviewers (2 per submission, double blind review). While we already have a fair few experienced and competent reviewers, the organizers and the programme committee of #dhgd2020 would be delighted if we could speed up the process by distributing the work among a greater number of peers. If you would like to offer yourself as an expert reviewer, you can contact us by email ( After completion of the review process, the results will be assessed by the chairs of the three thematic fields (4 to 5 per field). The Chairs, in cooperation with the organizing team and the program committee, will make the final selection of the contributions and the composition final programme of dghd2020.

We are looking forward to many interesting contributions from you!
