Call For Reviewers

Dear AIB Member:

AIB-MENA is in need to Reviewers for the Program Review Committee for the 2012 Annual AIB Meeting to be held in Dubai, United Arabs Emirates from January 13 to 15, 2012. A reviewer can expects to receive 2 or 3 papers for review by mid-September and to return them by October 10, 2010. We appreciate that this will be hectic but in keeping with the sensitivities of the month of Ramadan we have a late submission deadline.

As usual, manuscripts and panel proposals will be submitted directly to each track via the AIB online submission system. The submission system is expected to be opened by early July, 2012.

As with the submission of papers, signing up to serve as a reviewer will be managed on the web. Being a reviewer is a very important and critical role to play and we invite you to actively participate in the 2012 program. Last year, over 100 people were actively involved in reviewing the manuscripts. If you have previously participated as a reviewer we encourage you to register again this year, which I am hopeful and certain you will, and we invite new reviewers to join. Also please circulate this message to whomever you think would be able and willing to contribute. As in the past years, the Track Chairs will also identify the best reviewers. The Best Reviewer for each track will be recognized at the conference in Dubai, as well as the AIB Newsletter.

Descriptions of these tracks and identifying keywords and phrases can be found in the 2012 Call for Papers and Submission details.

I do hope that you will find the time to assist us with this most important review process, and consider submitting a paper or panel proposal yourself. The quality of our meetings critically depends on both your input and your presence for which we are most grateful. I thank you for your cooperation and look forward to seeing you in Dubai!
