Proposal Review Process

  • After receiving the proposal, the ELT Algeria Conference General Chairs submit it to the independent review committee.
  • The members of the independent review committee work separately and do not know each other
  • ELT Algeria Conference will use a “blind review” process where the authors’ names are not revealed to the reviewers.


The proposal review process is based on the following criteria:

  • Is the topic of the proposal/workshop relevant to the theme of ELT Algeria Conference? “Improving Teacher Professional Development
  • Is the content of the proposal well thought out? Does it clearly describe the target issue stated in the suggested topic?
  • Are the proposal’s objectives clearly stated? And can they be achievable, measurable and timely-oriented?
  • Does the proposal mirror the methodology to be used? Is the workshop format clearly stated? Does it describe, for example, how the attendees will be organized? How about the physical setting of the conference room?
  • Is there diversity in the workshop delivery? How does the speaker intend to deliver his/her workshop within 45 mins?
  • Does the proposal inspire the reviewer? Is the reviewer excited to learn more about it? Is it worth being presented at the 2019 ELT Algeria Conference?
  • Does the speaker propose something new that goes beyond what has been done before? Does the reviewer feel that there is something original and innovative?

  • The proposal’s review criteria enable the concerned committee to submit a final acceptance or refusal decision to the Conference General Chairs
  • Submitters whose proposal will have been accepted, will be notified of acceptance decisions by mid-January. And details for accepted workshops will be available in ELT Algeria Conference website.
