CPA Program Chair's Choice papers


This year we are continuing the Program Chairs' Choice Paper submission format where individuals submit proposals for single paper presentations that fit themes selected by the Program Chairs, and 3-4 submissions will be selected per theme by the Program Chairs. There will be three themes this year for this format:

  1. Computational and data science approaches in addiction research

  2. Novel and underused data collection approaches and methods in addiction treatment

  3. Utilization of technology (e.g., wearables, app based, treatment devices) in addiction treatment  services

Each presenter will submit a summary/abstract (225 words) for their proposed contribution to the symposium.

Peer Review Process & Evaluation Criteria:

The CPA 2023 Program Committee aims to be as transparent as possible considering the peer review process. Symposia submissions will be reviewed specifically by the two Program Co-Chairs (Drs. Erin Deneke and Jordan Davis). Submissions will be rated according to four review criteria.

1. Overall Quality / Importance

2. Innovation / Originality

3. Approach / Methodology

4. Diversity Considerations

Each criterion is rated on a scale from 1-7, (1 = very good / high priority; 2 = good; 3-5 = average; 6 = poor; 7 = very poor / low priority / no mention of diversity considerations). An average score across the reviewers is generated for each submission. Abstracts with high discrepancy in scores will be reviewed by an additional reviewer.
