Winter usually means quieter periods of activity, but this has not been the case at Cryptoeconomic Systems HQ! After our inaugural Summit in October 2019, our first Call for Papers closed in mid-November after a short extension to accommodate greatly increased interest following our first CryptoEconSys event. Together with our 42-member Program Committee we then commenced a pioneering experiment into interdisciplinary peer review.
Based on the feedback of reviewers and ensuing discussions with the editorial team, we selected 26 papers from 80 submissions for CES ‘20. We employed 4 outcome types with different pathways to publishing in the journal.
† Hot Topics Accept (4)
Hot Topics submissions were those concurrently under review at another venue. Hot Topics papers may not be published in the journal but abstract and review summary will be.
‡ Accepted for Conference & Journal (9)
These papers were clear accepts, provided that reviewer comments are addressed they will be included in the journal.
§ Accepted for Conference // Resubmit to Journal (8)
These papers presented less developed work that is worthy of discussion at the conference. We have invited these authors to submit updated versions of their manuscripts to our first Journal Call for Papers which will open at CES '20 and close at the end of May.
|| Accepted for Conference & Editorial Invitation (5)
These papers were invited by the editors to present their work at the conference with a conditional invitation to develop the work into a "Perspectives" article. We extended a limited number of Editorial Invitations to papers in order to encourage interdisciplinary discussion on key topics at the conference and additionally to acknowledge the limitations of discipline scope and expertise in our peer review process.
