Get and give feedback on your presentation - Peer review

When signing up for Sustain 2018 you can also sign up to be paired up with another presenter in order to get and to provide detailed personal feedback on their presentation.  We will match you with what we believe is a suitable abstract submitted by another participant. If you are present, then you will be giving mutual peer feedback. The matching will be done about 14 days before the conference.

We connect you through email so you can mutually arrange when you give feedback during or after the conference, and if you want to share the files before/after.

Please make the feedback specific and constructive!

We also hope this will connect people with different backgrounds to discover related work and new approaches.
